This 7-Year-Old Started A Nonprofit To Replace Trees Damaged By TornadoesThe violent path of uprooted trees seemed to never end.
With a goal to raise $150,000, Kids Luv Trees is aiming to individually plant 500 trees in spots affected by the tornadoes.
To raise donations, Kids Luv Trees is hosting talent shows, dance parties, and lemonade stands in addition to planting days to actually replace the trees.
When asked for one thing she hopes people know about her organization, she responded that “Kids Luv Trees is trying to let kids do a lot of the work.”
By partnering with Texas Trees Foundation and RETREET to form the North Texas TREEcovery Campaign, the three groups have a cumulative goal of planting 3,500 trees with no end date in mind.
In May, Kids Luv Trees will be the beneficiary of the Give Back Burger at Liberty Burger, receiving 10 percent of every $10 burger sold.
In addition to this partnership, Kids Luv Trees wants to work with local private, and public schools that are in the affected areas to offer community service hours so students can get involved, fulfilling Brinley’s mission of allowing kids to lead the efforts.
