Narrative

We picked this tree because it is small and it can barely stand on its own and we decided that it needed our help. So we are adopting this tree so we can watch it grow and provide benefits for other people and provide shade for many students. The annual benefits are only $5 now, but if it continues to grow it will be $27. As we get older we can watch the tree get older and we can say that we helped the tree survive.
