A Birthday Gift for Amma
Pledge by Sep 27, Plant by Dec 20
Soon it will be our beloved Amma’s birthday. This year Amma will be 65. Amma rarely asks for anything at all. But for several years now, she has been asking us to plant trees.
Will you commit to planting one tree (or more) this year, to celebrate Amma’s birth?
Amma was not raised in a culture that celebrates birthdays. But to make her children happy, she submits to our desire to celebrate her birth. Yet even on her birthday, Amma doesn't stop giving.
She gives gifts to many people – in the past, she has given clothing to poor people, free weddings to those who couldn’t afford to marry, and launched humanitarian projects such as massive building projects and clean-up campaigns. And of course, she gives darshan – to tens of thousands. Many years, on her birthday Amma is on stage for nearly 24 hours.
In honor of her 65th birthday, GreenFriends would like to offer Amma a gift of trees, planted all over North America by her beloved children.
Fall is a good time to plant trees in the Pacific Northwest. In coming weeks we will send out some basic information on how to plant trees, and where you can plant them, if you don’t own property or don’t have room. In recent times, hundreds of thousands of trees all over the world have been lost in devastating forest fires, floods, tornadoes and hurricanes. Let's do what we can.
So, before Amma's birthday on September 27th, please make your pledge by clicking here.
Please use the above link again to let us know how many trees you plant by December 20th. Once you plant your tree or trees, please send photos of it and/or your tree-planting stories to We will keep you posted on how our gift is coming along!
