Gardens, Art, Books, and Trees! Causes to Celebrate in the Month of April

April 20, 2018

Who doesn’t want an excuse to party or do something good for the world?! We’re going to take a look at some incredible partners who align with cause days to celebrate in the month of April. If you are a merchant on Shopify, you can download our award-winning app Give & Grow (for free!) to start donating through your store to any of the causes below. If you have a special event coming up, you can use Evite Donations to add any of these causes to your online event invitation & party with a purpose!   Here are suggestions of causes to celebrate this month, through your events & through your business: April 15th - World Art Day Art isn’t just for kids - bring friends of all ages together to celebrate your creative side. You can help other students get creative, too, by donating to DonorsChoose.org. Through their programs, your $5 donation can provide stickers and coloring pencils for student mentors to give to new classmates. April 22nd - Earth Day Give your favorite tree a nice big hug this Earth Day - or support the planting of new trees! Celebrate our planet and help protect it by donating to One Tree Planted. Every $1 donated will plant a tree, and that’s a lot more trees to hug! April 23rd - World Book Day Cuddle up with your favorite book, a blanket, some iced tea, and great friends for a reading celebration. While celebrating the heroes in your book, be a literacy hero yourself by donating to Schools on Wheels. Your $50 donation can provide books, a backpack and school supplies for a student in need. All Month is Garden Month! April is National Garden Month so whether you have a green thumb or don't, this is the month to try out new gardening techniques and get some planting in. April is a great month to plant vegetables like broccoli, cauliflowers, tomatoes, cucumbers and celery. Get your garden ready for a bountiful summer harvest by planting now! Invite friends to make small potted herb gardens, or revitalize a community plot together. Through Community Healing Gardens, your $10 donation can buy edible seed packets; a $25 donation can buy a professional garden tool; a $50 donation can buy outdoor classroom supplies, and your $100 can buy a cubic yard of high quality soil for raised gardens. However you choose to celebrate, make it a memorable celebration by using Pledgeling's tools & services to give back through your events & your business!
