Re: The Unwritten

 it took a while, but one of my poems finally accomplished a little something ...


Rebecca M Roach donated in honor of Andreas Gripp for Give Now.

"Thank you very much for your poem speaking back to hunger for the 2021 World Food Day Poetry call for submissions. This donation to Eden Reforestation Partners is being made on your behalf and, at $0.10 USD/tree, allows for the planting of 10 trees in countries such as Madagascar, Mozambique, Kenya, Nicaragua, and Honduras. It covers all expenses (including nursery costs, transportation of seedlings to the reforestation sites, planting, guarding, and weeding to allow a head start on vegetation). In this way, your poem speaking back to hunger is also helping provide consistent, fair-wage employment through the rebuilding of complex forest ecosystems in these areas."

Much thanks and gratitude, Rebecca 💚
