Plant a Tree ($1 a Tree)

Brightest (Climate)

Flexible times

Trees are the most efficient, natural carbon dioxide (CO2) absorbers on the planet. Planting a tree helps limit climate change, restart water cycles, keep deserts from spreading, and also provides vital natural resources to local communities. Every time you plant a tree on Brightest, you're making the world a little better (and more carbon neutral), while offsetting your personal carbon footprint. Each tree you plant offsets approximately 1% of a metric ton (MT) of CO2 each year. Healthy, protected trees live to be 50, 75, and often 100+ years old, making them one of nature's most important ecosystem protectors and climate change fighters. For easy reference, planting four to five new trees is equal to taking one car off the road for a year and neutralizing all its emissions and carbon footprint. By supporting this Brightest tree planting project, you'll help protect forest biodiversity, restore degraded land, fight climate change, and promote local economic development in front-line communities. Our partners work with local conservation groups, farmers, and tree planters in Brazil, California, Haiti, Peru, Madagascar, Mozambique, and Tanzania to establish sustainable agroforestry systems using native tree species, create good-paying green jobs, and help protect the local environment. Trees planted through Brightest are planted in partnership with The Brightest Foundation Incorporated, a US 501 (c)(3) public charity, EIN 83-3516335, alongside our local reforestation partner network. Any contribution you make to plant trees with us is tax-deductible within the guidelines of U.S. law.

Volunteer To Listen To People

Listen One

Flexible times

**It is important to read and understand all these expectations before you apply to become a Listener.**Listen.One exists because of three reasons; we believe we are made to love everyone, we believe in the Holy Spirit to guide us and we believe that Jesus can impact anyone’s life anywhere at anytime.The challenge for us is to love our neighbors - all our neighbors! It is difficult to love our neighbors who aren’t easy and convenient to love when our normal routines of life create comfort zones that keep us from meeting others. We believe that to start actively loving our neighbors starts with getting to know who they are.People are seeking to feel known and that takes time. Most of the time it is not just a few chat messages sent back and forth. It’s following up the next day to check in with them to see how they are doing. It’s about building relationships and that takes time to build trust and friendship. Think of this as a pen pal service using email, text messages and phone calls.The time commitment is about 2-5 hours per week. Volunteer Listeners all work from home and set their own schedule.To support our volunteer Listeners, we have weekly group phone calls with all Listeners to learn from other Listeners and ask questions of the group.Our guidelines for our Volunteer ListenersPray that the Holy Spirit guides you and helps you to be mentally present and that your conversations will be peaceful, non-judgmental and encouraging.Always set the time expectation with the Sharer. Make sure they know how much time you have to chat and when you will be able to chat next.Show the Sharer respect - do not multitask while chatting. Be comfortable and have fun but don’t jump into their talk with your opinions or your experiences. Don’t be distracted by your surroundings. Show this person that they are the most important person in your life at this moment. No preaching, no condemning, no judging, no advice.Acknowledge what the Sharer says. Use your imagination to put yourself in their shoes - not with your history but with theirs. Don’t think about how you would do things better or how you are going to offer a solution.Be curious!Ask specific clarifying questions around - Who? What? When? Where? You can also clarify what they said by simply asking "Are you saying that...? Restate what you hear.Get to know more about them: "Were you afraid?" "How did this change things for you?" "How did you deal with that?"If you are excited about joining our listening team, please take the time now to fill out our application form. https://listen.one/listener-signup/ This is the first step.Listen.One is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
