To Save a Life

The arborists at Longwood Gardens go to great lengths to save the life of a tree. Wouldn’t it be grand if everyone felt this way about their fellow human? It only takes a little effort:

  • sponsor a family with food gift certificates
  • volunteer to tutor an at-risk student
  • join the Literacy Volunteers of America
  • buy economically disadvantaged students some reading books
  • donate your time at a local school
  • make a young girl happy–buy her a prom dress
  • have an old bicycle that you’re not using? find out from social services what families could use it
  • Could you give up one hour a day, one hour a week, to help those in need?
Something so small could mean so much to someone else.

  1. Great photographs. I’m heartbroken by how many trees our city and neighbors keep taking down. People have no consideration for life, other than their own, I think. It would be nice if we could think more about one another and other living things. 🙂

  2. Fascinating equipment they use there. You are so right about looking after each other.

    Hope you are OK & still able to support 100WC. Let me know Terry!
