Over 1,000 Trees Planted!

We have committed to supporting Eden Reforestation Projects.  This month we broke the 1,000 mark and 1,150 trees have now been planted as a result of our donations.

The trees are planted in deforested areas in Haiti, Ethiopia, Madagascar and Nepal.  They provide a habitat for animals, purify water sources, control flooding and erosion and help to replenish the soil with nutrients needed for farming.  

What sets Eden Reforestation Projects apart from other environmental organizations is that they employ local villagers to plant trees to help lift them out of poverty.  They are an incredible organization and we are proud to be supporting them and as a result, our global community.

Helicopter Flight Around Manhattan

I had the opportunity to take a helicopter flight with FlyNyon this past week.  It was an incredible experience in which I, of course, chose to take the "adventure seat".  That seat allowed me to sit on the floor with my feet on the skids of the helicopter!  I got some great shots of Lower Manhattan and the World Trade Center, check them out!  I am offering prints of these images in my Etsy shop, here is the link:
