Buy a Tree
Change a Life

BUY A TREE. CHANGE A LIFE. is  dedicated to helping children globally and locally through volunteer mobilization by way of an annual Christmas tree sale.  100% of the proceeds raised during the project goes directly to help children through our global partnership that serves children in some of the most difficult places in the world, and through local partnerships that serve children right here in Bradenton, FL. 

Helping kids Locally.

50% of all the money we raise from BUY A TREE. CHANGE A LIFE. goes directly to help children right here in our community through our local partnership with Day 4 Hope. We host an annual back to school event that provides homeless and needy children with everything they need to begin the first day of school with dignity. Each child receives: an eye screening, child & family portraits, personal care items, gift cards for clothes & shoes, dental exams & education, a haircut, backpack & school supplies, and much more.

Helping kids Globally.

50% of all the money we raise from BUY A TREE. CHANGE A LIFE. goes directly to help children around the world through our global partnership with People for Care and Learning. They are dedicated to serving the poor by helping children, widows, and their communities worldwide reach their full potential through five main areas: sustainable farming, building cities, children’s homes, developing common grounds, and learning centers.
