Yes, it’s National Arbor Day today. But with most of America — and the world, for that matter — staying close to home, celebrating this auspicious day is just a bit different this time.
My celebration of the day this year includes two things. Small things, but things which nevertheless help the cause.
I just made a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation. This is something I look forward to doing each year.
If you would like to do that today, follow this link.
I’m also going to use today’s hashtag from the A.D.F. on my twitter account. And that is: #ArborDayAtHome. When you use that tag, the Foundation will plant a tree for your gesture of support and good will. Up to 50,000 trees.
That’s a wonderful thing.
One more thought: if you’d like to take a look at the blog for the A.D. Foundation, go right here.
