Dear community –
Pine has helped thousands of families – like your own – connect to nature. We’ve seen people transform through their connection with the natural world around us – and we want it to continue. For that to happen, we need your help.
COVID-19 has had a huge impact on so many. At Pine, we’re seeing the impact of this pandemic up close and personal.
Our goal is to ensure children can continue to access transformative nature connection experiences when they need it most. We’ve launched a new online platform to host programs and share resources that inspire kids to get outside. And we’re working hard to keep Pine strong so that we’re ready to lead again when the time comes.
But the truth is, we’re struggling. We need your help.
Despite having already made difficult personnel and budget cuts, program closures pose a significant challenge to the organization. Restrictions on accessing government aid packages and looming uncertainty for summer programs only make the situation worse.
I don’t usually reach out in this way, but this is a crisis and we truly need your support.
Nature is still open – and we need to stay open too.
Our goal is to make sure we still have the staff and resources available to continue facilitating nature connection now and once the crisis ends.
Your contribution will help us:
- Ensure children can continue to access valued mentors and transformative nature connection experiences when they need it most.
- Reach more people with our online offerings, supporting connection with nature at this time.
- Last but not least… ensure we’re still here to welcome our participants back in person when restrictions lift!
Can I count on you to donate now? Remember, your contribution will help children connect with nature and build the skills they need to overcome challenges. This has never been more important.
From the entire Pine team, thank you for your support. We couldn’t do it without you.
We want to share our gratitude to everyone who has donated, including those below. Thank you! We truly couldn’t do it without you.
