10 days of silence for the trees

People who know me know that my mission is to plant 1 million trees. Together with 10 fantastic volunteers, we even want to have 1 tree per Dutch person. Ideally, we will also make 1 million Dutch people climate aware (more) with the Boes Bos Foundation πŸŒ³β˜€οΈ

However, this does not happen automatically! We all just have a job and the challenge with the climate needs many hands and money right now. That's why I'm doing this bizarre stunt...

From August 5 to August 15 I will not talk! Being a consultant and speaker, that's quite a challenge for this bouncing ball... ADHD doesn't help with that either, so to speak. 😊

Through this stunt action I want to draw attention to the trees and the challenges with the climate. After all, this is desperately needed! Trees not only produce oxygen so that we can breathe… They also absorb enormous amounts of CO2 and move water across the land! Trees play a crucial role in our ecosystem! Trees cool our planet and filter the air! Pretty nice of them, right? πŸŒ³πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸ»

With this stunt we want to raise 12,000 euros. We can then achieve the following:

Planting more than 20,000 trees in the tropics.
Protection of 15,000 m2 of tropical forest in Costa Rica.
Creation of 3,000 m2 food forest in the Netherlands.
Support awareness campaigns.
Do you also want to contribute a tree? Then go to our Whydonate campaign via BoesBos.nl/ikzwijg and discover how 25 euros can already make a difference! This allows us to plant 42 trees and protect 31 m2 of tropical forest. πŸŒ³πŸ™πŸ»

Not to brag, but I get this question sometimes… As an IT consultant and speaker, I earn quite a bit while I don't need much for a happy life. That's why I donate 25% to 50% of my income to the trees. However, to achieve the ambitious goals of our foundation, we also depend on other donors. Both big and small. After all, the trees are happy with every euro! So click on the link above. πŸ™πŸ»
