Great organization and I'm glad to help out in any way I can.

What You'll Get

Texas is currently experiencing one of the worst droughts in state history, and without supplemental watering, thousands of trees will likely die as a result. Since 1983, Trees for Houston has worked to maintain the city’s tree population, planting and distributing more than 420,000 trees and seedlings across the Houston region. The organization aims to water and maintain as many of the trees suffering from the drought as possible.

As a result of the current dry conditions, the demand for supplemental watering has increased dramatically. It costs Trees for Houston $75 to water a tree for one year. It is important to preserve the city’s tree population so that Houstonians can continue to enjoy their leafy benefits, such as improving air quality, adding beauty to the the area, and reducing the heat caused by increased urbanization.

Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Trees for Houston preserve trees suffering from the impacts of the current drought. If G-Team members raise $450, then Trees for Houston can water and maintain six Houston-area trees. Each additional $75 raised will provide water and care for another tree.

Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
