Plant trees and support resistance in Palestine today

Today is Giving Tuesday. November 29th is also the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.

Your donation today to plant olives trees and grape vines is an act of solidarity with people struggling to stay on their land in the face of Israeli land theft, settler attacks, military incursions, and the poisoning and uprooting ancient trees.
