A TINY HOME THAT COULD MAKE A GIANT DIFFERENCE!: TreeSong is a small non-profit in Washougal, Washington, whose mission is to foster stewardship of, and connection to, nature, community and self through programs for adults, children and families. In the four years since it started, TreeSong has served 1,575 children and adults. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has arisen that could help TreeSong expand its programming and philanthropic outreach to underserved populations. The HGTV show “Tiny Luxury” has offered to feature TreeSong on one of its episodes, in which Portland-based builder Tiny Heirloom builds a tiny home that will become part of the center's grounds! Not only will this added facility allow us to expand our program offerings, but the exposure we receive from being on the show will help us raise awareness about our organization and take TreeSong's important work to the next level. Plus, with its small, environmentally friendly footprint and use of green materials and technology, a tiny home is a perfect fit for TreeSong. Best of all, Tiny Heirloom has reduced the price of the tiny home by one third, from $90,000 to $45,000. We have already raised $32,000 through donations and loans from private parties and now we’re asking for your help to raise the rest!
A VERY IMPORTANT MISSION: Never has the clarion call to protect our precious planet been louder. TreeSong's mission is to reconnect people with nature, educate them and ignite their dedication to passionately and effectively care for our environment. TreeSong took root in June of 2013 on 1.24 acres of wild and dense native forest on the Washougal River in southern Washington State. Housed in a quaint 1,000-square-foot cabin, it has been developing nature education and arts programs that serve all ages, while working to cure the growing phenomenon of “Nature Deficit Disorder” by dispensing large doses of Vitamin N (N as in Nature!) Future goals include an expanded wilderness tracking program with an emphasis on empowering women in nature, broadened offerings for at-risk youth and low-income families, and a thriving arts program.
JOIN A BEAUTIFUL COMMUNITY OF TREESONG SUPPORTERS AND DO YOUR PART IN MAKING THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE: Being featured on HGTV's “Tiny Luxury” series and adding a tiny home to its property is a fantastic opportunity that will take TreeSong a long way toward achieving its goal of reconnecting as many people as possible to nature, community and self. Please help us take advantage of this one-of-a-kind opportunity by donating what you can to our campaign!
TreeSong is a registered 501(c)(3) federally registered non-profit so all donations are tax-deductible. :-)
