Partnership Campaign – A Tree for Each Rotarian
RI President Ian Riseley is asking Rotary members to work together to advance the tradition of Rotary: Making a Difference in 2017-18. He has challenged each District to plant a tree for each Rotarian before Earth Day on the 22nd of April, 2018.
District 7070 has partnered with Highway of Heroes Tribute to help make this a success. We’ve funded a HOHT tree for every Rotary Club, as well as one for every Rotarian in District 7070. Our goal is now to plant one for every attendee to our Rotary International Convention in 2018!
When is a tree more than just a tree?
When it is part of a living memorial to honour Canada’s fallen and when it will re-naturalize North America’s busiest transportation corridor.
The mission of the Highway of Heroes Living Tribute is to honour the sacrifices of Canada’s military for our collective freedoms by planting 2 million trees, 117,000 of which will honour each Canadian that has made the ultimate sacrifice since Confederation.
How YOUR Rotary Club Can Get Involved
For every $150 Rotary donation, 2 ‘Hero Trees’ – two of the 117,000 honouring our war dead – will be planted along the stretch of the 401 known as the ‘Highway of Heroes’.
These ‘Hero Trees’ will serve as a permanent part of the living tribute that will last for another 150 years, reminding future generations about the service and sacrifices made by the Canadians who came before them.
In addition, as a result of the support of District 7070, there will be an official tree planting day in April 2018 (location TBD – 2 months before the International Convention in Toronto) in which ALL District 7070 Rotarians and their families can actively participate. What a wonderful opportunity for Rotary support and participation, not to mention a free family day of fun!
All donations made through this Rotary-specific site page will be tracked for District 7070.
From now until April 2018, A Tree for Every Hero wants to double your impact!
With your tree donation, you may choose to honour two or all of your local veterans (named on your local cenotaph), members of your club, or those you believe are heroes in your eyes.
