The Sapling Project- Be there! :)

The Sapling project is back, for the third time now and boy, am I excited! This is going to be one super weekend again. 

This project was started a few months back by Ranjeet Walunj and Satish Vijaykumar, and has grown to have over 500 volunteers now. 

It's one genuine social project that I've come across so far and I totally support the cause! It's wonderful to see so many passionate people coming together for a common cause, and I love it because it is so genuine unlike a lot of other NGOs I know (not generalising!) :) 

So, anyway, everyone's invited to plant/distribute a sapling free of cost on the 6th of June, 2010. The venues, timings and the people concerned follow. So be there, plant a sapling and contribute towards making the environment greener! :)

It must had been an excellent event over that weekend, I'm so sad that I couldn't make it.
