When you ask the average person what type of humanitarian efforts they would most like to support, you normally don't hear “tree sponsorship” as an answer. However, there are many reasons why people from all over the world are contributing to My Olive Tree's efforts in Israel.
Here are some of the biggest reasons you should consider sponsoring a tree through our organization:
⦁ Bless Israel. Both Christians and Jewish people are looking for creative and unique ways to bless the nation of Israel. Sponsoring a tree is a beautiful gift to the future of the nation and every sponsorship represents love, solidarity, and support for Israel’s right to exist. My Olive Tree provides a unique way for people all over the world to take root in the Holy Land.
- Encourage growth and agriculture. There are many parts of Israel that still have not recovered from the negligence of the Ottoman Empire and others in terms of the region's agriculture. One of our goals as an organization is to take back the desert and bring green, flourishing life back to the region.
⦁ Take a stand against terrorism. Our Peace Grove is a symbol of peace and a way to reclaim “tunnels of terror” used to smuggle weapons and terrorists from Gaza to Israel. By sponsoring a tree in one of these groves, you are making a direct impact on the fight against terrorism in the Middle East.
⦁ Honor a loved one. Whether you are honoring the birth or death of a loved one, the tree you sponsor in Israel will be a constant living connection to that person. It will grow as your child grows, and it will flourish in memory of those you have lost.
⦁ Connect to the region. Have you been looking for a way to get closer connected to Israel? Sponsoring a tree with My Olive Tree is a great chance to do so. We have many Jewish contributors in particular who wish to make a connection with their ancestry and their faith by placing a tree in Israel.
⦁ Help strengthen local economy. For millennia, olive trees were a major facet of Israel's economy. They were used for fruit, oil, wood and more. Today, My Olive Tree is helping to bring that historical connection back to the region while being able to provide locals with new crops that can contribute to their economy.
Whatever your reason, we would love to hear from you if you are interested in or have questions about sponsoring a tree with My Olive Tree. Contact us today and we will be happy to speak to you.
