Group gifts can be a great way to pay tribute to a person, celebrate a special occasion or express sympathy following a death. After all, you can afford to get something extra special when everyone pulls their money together. But what's the special something that you should buy? And how will you collect all the money?
If you want to give a group gift that is extra special without having to go through any hassles at all, a Trees for a Change Custom Grove of Trees is a great solution! Your group gift will pay to have an small or large grove of trees planted in a U.S. National Forest in an area that suffered damage due to forest fires. The recipient of your gift will be able to go online and view the location of their grove. They'll even be able to view real photographs of the site.
With the gift, your recipient gets:
- A listing in our Tree Gift Registry with his or her name and the month of the gift.
- A personalized card that explains the gift fully, provides information about how to view the tree and lists the names and personal messages of everyone who contributed.
- A tree planting certificate personalized with his or her name, the name of your group and the date. The certificate is sent framed in a beveled chocolate brown recycled wood frame.
Here's how the Custom Grove works:
1. You set up a Custom Grove with us. There is no fee to do so, and you don't have to pay anything up front. You let us know the name of the person that you're collecting for and set up a final date for contributions. We'll go to work and get everything set up, and then we'll send you a link and info to share with others.
2. You spread the word about your Custom Grove. Send an email or a text or post on social media. Make some phone calls. You can tell everyone however you wish. They only need to be given the link to make their contribution.
3. Your contributors visit this page and pay for their contribution. It only costs $10 to purchase one tree, and contributors can add multiple trees if they wish. They also can add a personal message to the gift recipient.
4. When the contribution period ends, we prepare the gift items outlined above, as long as there have been at least 20 trees paid for. We make arrangements to have the trees planted and ship the gift package either to you or to the recipient free of charge.
