Tech Enthusiasts Join Forces To Plant Trees

Sunday October 1st, 2023, 12:52pm


Windsor Hackforge and LaSalle-based Avinus Web Services have joined forces to present “Trees from Techies,” an initiative aimed at raising funds to support reforestation of Canadian lands impacted by wildfires.

The organizations are looking to raise $1,000 by the end of October.

The fundraiser is managed through One Tree Planted, which promises to plant one tree for every dollar raised. An official partner of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, One Tree Planted is an established and trustworthy facilitator of this endeavour.

Each year, Avinus Web Services donates a portion of its profits to charity. For 2023, they have chosen to support reforestation efforts and invite peers and clients to join.

“Technical professions are often thought of as being as far removed from nature as you can get,” says Sherri Wheeler, owner of Avinus. “So inspiring my fellow technical colleagues along with our friends and communities is a fun way to reconnect to the environment and each other.”
