Who are we and where do donations go?
We are Peter, Valentina and Padideh, 3 friends who met at the London School of Self-Awareness (LSSA). Together we decided to set up a fundraiser to raise money for LSSA's activities (see below) and to make a positive impact on our local community at the moment we need it most! LSSA will receive a portion of the funds raised.
To achieve our goal we have partnered with The Conservation Volunteers (TCV), where Sir David Attenborough serves as a Vice President. They have been instrumental in helping make this campaign happen. A portion of the funds raised will go to TCV for securing planting permissions, insurance, COVID compliance and many other aspects associated with tree planting and aftercare.
We have about 20 donors who have elected to join us on tree planting day and so we will have plenty of hands to plant the trees! Places to join us on tree planting day are now fully booked due to COVID restrictions.
LSSA's mission is to give people the opportunity to understand their life is in their hands through online and in-person events on meditation and self-awareness. We recognise the profound link between nature, clean air and our ability to achieve a positive inner state. Our inner environment (body, emotions and thoughts) and the outer environment are absolutely interconnected. This is why planting trees where we live and work is critical to having more inner stability and an overall improved quality of daily life.
Thank you for considering to join us in the move to provide a better inner & outer environment for us all!
