The project will cost $25,000 in total, and will put 1,000 trees back into the rain forest. It's expected to take 15 years in total before the trees will completely grow. However, the idea behind the project is to protect the future of our children and give something back to the earth. Unfortunately, people around the world are illegally chopping down trees in rain forests - usually for self-profit. In remote places like Central Jawa, it's hard to control illegal activities and there's nothing done to stop poaches cutting down the trees in mass.
One Teakwood tree costs a mere $25 - something which we often take for granted. In return for donations, Sean himself, is offering an array of thank you gifts, such as virtual e-cards and even real thank you letters sent via mail. Together, with the help of Sean, a young child who deserves a pleasant future, visitors can help to make a real positive change to the world through the A Tree That Keeps Growing IndieGoGo fundraiser.
