Join Neil Young and Foo Fighters to fight poverty

Later today, the most widely-broadcast charity concert in history will take place in New York City's Central Park. The Global Citizen Festival will shine a spotlight on extreme poverty.

Earth Day Network is the official Sustainability Partner, and we’ve made a major commitment:  We’re going to plant 10 million trees in impoverished areas in five years.

Click here to give $5 to plant five trees in places with extreme poverty.  

Why trees? Trees reverse the impacts of land degradation and provide food, energy and income, helping communities achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability. Trees also filter the air and mitigate the effects of climate change. The poor suffer the most from climate change and environmental degradation, but they contribute little to them. That’s unjust, and we have to do something about it.

Take action by donating $5 to plant trees in areas of the world where they’ll do the most good for the most vulnerable populations.

You can also tune in to the live broadcast at 5:00 p.m. EDT today (Sept. 29). If you miss it, there are rebroadcasts at midnight and 8:00 a.m. on September 30.
