Hawk's Tri-Cycle is proud to support the MORE Foundation. You can help by simply bringing us your gently used athletic shoes and soccer cleats. Here is a recent letter from the MORE Foundation:
Your support is making a huge difference!
Dear Store Owners/Managers,
This month 100 families in four villages will have filled 200,000 grow bags and are preparing to germinate 200,000 trees. These trees will be planted (2,000 per family farm) prior to the rainy season this April. Over the next 20 years, these 2,000 trees will generate over one million Cedi’s ($500,000 USD) for the family. This proper mix of trees creates the MORE Farm -- an economic engine for the village and region. Trees combined with farming (Agro-Forestry) produce three times the annual yield of farming alone. The trees will also help heal the planet by removing 200,000 tons of carbon from the atmosphere. Donated running shoes are making a huge impact on these villages by ending poverty, regenerating soils, sequestering carbon, and allowing for effective organic farm management.
With your continued support, we hope to help hundreds of families and villages escape poverty by jump-starting economic activity at the village level. We hope to reach a tipping point so that thousands of villages will insist on adopting the MORE program across Africa. Your continued support towards this history making effort is greatly appreciated by the thousands impacted by your generous support.
