Be A Tree Hugger for the Rainforests!

Put simply, we can’t survive on a planet without trees, so show them some love by becoming a Rainforest Trust UK tree hugger. You can hug any trees you like – in your local park, a nearby woodland, a beautiful forest, your garden, even in the street! You can hug all your 100 trees on the same day, or spread your tree-hugging throughout the summer – it’s entirely up to you. The only rule is that they must be 100 different trees.

To get started, click here to set up your JustGiving Fundraising page, or click here to download a sponsorship form you can print out and fill in at home.

“We’ve all missed hugs in the last year, so let’s celebrate hugging by doing Rainforest Trust UK’s Hug 100 Trees challenge! The natural environment has been such a huge source of comfort and brought so many of us peace and calm in our recent uncertain and chaotic lives. It’s time for us to give back, and what a great way to give back – raising money while giving hugs! C’mon, get tree hugging for the planet!”
