NYC Chocolate Party

The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation is hosting a Chocolate for Charity party in the Big Apple this Sunday December 10th.

Tickets/Donations go for $20 and include live music, a talk by David Wolfe. Tons of chocolate and chocolate shakes for purchase for those who got that sweet tooth!

We'll be there! Who will be joining us?


A little note from founder David Wolfe:

About six years ago, I had the idea of starting a non-profit foundation that could be actively engaged in healing the planet by planting trees with edible parts (fruit trees!). I always loved planting trees and some of the most memorable days of my childhood were spent planting fruit trees. (Some are now over 27 years old!)   

This idea eventually became The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation (FTPF), an international nonprofit charity dedicated to strategically planting fruit trees where the harvest will best serve communities for decades—at places such as homeless shelters, drug rehabs, low-income neighborhoods, schools, Native American reservations, animal sanctuaries, and international hunger relief sites. Harvest from each planting is used as a means to help alleviate hunger, improve health, enrich lives, and inspire volunteers to take action for their environment. Recipients share seedlings and fruits with neighbors so the benefits multiply exponentially!

If you'll be in the New York City area on Sunday, December 10, please join us for our annual "Chocolate for Charity" fundraiser, featuring complimentary raw chocolate treats, music, live paintings by unbelievable artists, and my presentation about our important work. Please see the event flyer below for details and reserve your spot today! We hope to see you there!

If you can't make it, please consider making a fully tax-deductible donation this holiday season to support our innovative projects. For more information about FTPF or to make an online donation, visit www.ftpf.org or call us toll-free at 877.884.7570. Thank you for helping save the planet, one fruit tree at a time.
