TREE SIZES, PRICES & STORY
In 2012, a family at Life Pointe Church in Homestead, FL was adopting a child from Ethiopia. $25,000 was needed for the adoption. The Life Group they attended in the church decided to sell Christmas trees to raise the money. 450 Christmas trees were sold. $25,000 was raised.
Since that first year of BUY A TREE. CHANGE A LIFE., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization called ForHope.Us was founded. We invited churches to join the project with the intent of giving all of the money away to help children in their community as well as across the world in some very difficult places.
In partnership with local churches, People for Care and Learning, and Serving Orphans Worldwide, BUY A TREE. CHANGE A LIFE. has given away over 2 million dollars to help children.
