This event serves primarily as a fundraiser for a non-profit organization Trees for Tanzania (note: this is NOT a fundraiser for the student organization of a similar name). We will be collecting monetary donations and distributing cardstock cards that correspond to a number of trees planted in Tanzania based on an individual's donation. For example, if someone donates $0.20, the recieve a card that says 1 tree will be planted in Tanzania in their name. If someone donates $1.00, they recieve a card that corresponds to 5 trees, etc.  This event will additionally have outreach and education materials that students can take and read. These materials/flyers will have information about the risk of deforestation in East African countries impacts the environment and people who are heavily dependent on firewood to cook their food and boil water for safe drinking.
