What is an Alternative Gift?

Put simply, an "alternative" gift is a unique and impactful way of giving gifts to friends, loved ones, colleagues, or really -- anyone! Instead of buying another book, CD, tie, or scarf for a loved one who "has everything" -- you can instead give in his or her name a gift that will directly contribute to helping families out of crushing poverty and towards a new life of hope and empowerment.

How does this work?

It's simple! You purchase a gift for a friend or loved one. Your gift is used by Trees for Life to alleviate poverty for families around the world. You then notify your friend or loved one by emailing or printing a card, of the gift you made in their honor.
