Support the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation with Dreyer's/Edy's Fruit Bars - Earn Points and Raise Money!

We're really excited to be partnering up with Dreyer’s/Edy’s Fruit Bars and the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation (FTPF) to bring you yet another sponsored tweet-a-thon! For this week's TwitCause (March 18th – 24th), every time you include #PlantTrees in your tweets, Dreyer’s/Edy’s Fruit Bars will donate $1 to the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation (up to $5k)! So please, spread the word to your friends and help make a difference in planting orchards throughout the world!

The donations will be made as matching contributions to actions you take to support the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation. For example, each tweet in support will earn $1, each member that joins the "I Support Fruit Tree Planting Foundation" group will earn $1, etc. In short, for every point that's earned this week, Dreyer's/Edy's will donate a quarter to the FTPF. Here's how to earn points for the cause:

+1 point for each person that "hearts" the FTPF, you can do that in the Group or through the Featured Cause module shown throughout EP. EP Link

+4 points for each tweet that includes the hash tag #PlantTrees. You can retweet the message with one click via our TwitCause page here: EP Link

+4 points for each person that joins the "I Support Fruit Tree Planting Foundation" Group: EP Link

+6 points for each person that answers the Featured Cause question of the week, which you can do on the Featured Cause module shown throughout the site as well as in the FTPF Group: EP Link

+8 ($2!) points for each story shared in the "I Support Fruit Tree Planting Foundation" Group. Share your story of why this cause matters to you in the Group: EP Link

The question we're asking this week is: "What is your favorite fruit?" As we've mentioned, the goal of the Featured Cause question of the week is to provide a question that everyone can answer, and that helps you think about what the cause stands for. In this case, the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to planting edible, fruitful trees and plants to benefit the environment and all its inhabitants. Their primary mission is to plant and help others plant a collective total of 18 billion fruit trees across the world (approximately 3 for every person alive) and encourage their growth under organic standards.

Dreyer’s/Edy’s Fruit Bars is a proud supporter of the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation and it’s mission in providing sustainable, organic orchards in our local communities. Dreyer’s/Edy’s is committed to a healthier way of living, and providing delicious, all-natural frozen fruit treats is just one aspect of helping us live a better life. By partnering with the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation to develop Communities Take Root, a program to provide fresh fruit orchards in dozens of communities across the United States, Dreyer’s/Edy’s is helping us all live healthier lives!

So, let’s get started!
