BENEFITING: Treesong Nature Awareness And Retreat Center
A TINY HOME THAT COULD MAKE A GIANT DIFFERENCE!: TreeSong is a small non-profit in Washougal, Washington, whose mission is to foster stewardship of, and connection to, nature, community and self through programs for adults, children and families. In the four years since it started, TreeSong has served 1,575 children and adults. With your help TreeSong is looking to expand its programming and philanthropic outreach to underserved populations by adding a tiny home to the center's grounds! This added facility will allow us to expand our program offerings as well as to invite community involvement and awareness through our fundraising and sponsorship connections. Plus, with its small, environmentally friendly footprint and use of green materials and technology, a tiny home is a perfect fit for TreeSong. We've been working with a Tiny Home builder in Salem, Oregon, Village Cottages & Tiny Houses (check out the Big Little Bungalow, that's the one!). They are the most reasonably priced tiny house builders around and build a beautiful, quality home. We're aiming to raise $10,000 which along with the $32,000 that has already been raised through donations and loans from private parties, will take us to the project's total cost of $42,000 (this includes the home, land prep., electricy/plumbing hookups, etc.)!
A VERY IMPORTANT MISSION: Never has the clarion call to protect our precious planet been louder. TreeSong's mission is to reconnect people with nature, educate them and ignite their dedication to passionately and effectively care for our environment. TreeSong took root in June of 2013 on 1.24 acres of wild and dense native forest on the Washougal River in southern Washington State. Housed in a quaint 1,000-square-foot cabin, it has been developing nature education and arts programs that serve all ages, while working to cure the growing phenomenon of “Nature Deficit Disorder” by dispensing large doses of Vitamin N (N as in Nature!) Future goals include an expanded wilderness tracking program with an emphasis on empowering women in nature, broadened offerings for at-risk youth and low-income families, and a thriving arts program.
JOIN A BEAUTIFUL COMMUNITY OF TREESONG SUPPORTERS AND DO YOUR PART IN MAKING THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE: Adding a tiny home to the property is an important and foundational step that will take TreeSong a long way toward achieving its goal of reconnecting as many people as possible to nature, community and self. Please help us take move forward with this wonderful project by donating what you can to our campaign!
TreeSong is a registered 501(c)(3) federally registered non-profit so all donations are tax-deductible. :-)
