Many people would like to help, but may be financially constrained—or simply don’t know where to start. By participating “In giving tree,” anyone can afford to help at least a little, with no extra strain on the budget.

What does “in giving tree of Nothing” entail?”

 The way “in giving tree” works is simple. Participants choose to sacrifice certain things for at least a week. They may choose to do without modern conveniences as much as possible. They may give up desserts, or entertainment, or forgo eating at restaurants.Gathering together, In other words, for at least a week, participants try to live as close as possible to the way many others in the world do. Then, at the end of the week, they calculate how much money they have saved and contribute that amount to a Families for Orphans project to help orphans and vulnerable children, including homeless.

 As simple as it is, participants have found their “In giving tree” experiences to be extremely rewarding and even life-changing. Parents have reported that doing “in giving tree” as a family taught their children valuable life lessons and helped their family gain a greater appreciation for how much they have, and how much they take for granted.

All you need to get started is a bit of planning and a willingness to make sacrifices in order to support a good cause. Each participating “team”—whether that is an individual, community group or a family—can decide what they want to sacrifice and for how long.

For example, you may decide to:

  • Forego running water for a week (to the extent possible).

  • Wash clothes and dishes by hand.

  • Use water (except for sanitation) only from containers that have been carried home by hand after filling them at the home of a neighbor or some other location within walking distance.

  • Refrain from renting movies.

  • Live on basic food staples, such as plain rice or beans, oatmeal, etc., for a couple of days or the entire week.

  • Walk or ride a bike instead of driving a car.

  • Try eating just one meal a day for several days or the entire week.

  • Eat only food that does not have to be refrigerated.

  • Use only candles or lanterns after dark.
