“This activity is one way to payback the goods we used and received from the environment.” – Jobal Docot

“This is the least I can contribute in helping to campaign about saving our forest.” -Jose Martin

“This is the first time I learned that the (Philippine) law requires us to plant a number of trees in our lifetime. Our small little ways of conserving and rehabilitating the environment surely have a big effect on future generations.” – Ancel John Tarras

“I am proud that, as an individual, I contributed to the restoration of nature.”
– Jayson Dorigo

“Our country experienced a lot of calamities because we have no more trees to protect us. I felt as an individual I have a responsibility to help by planting them. It is my privilege to handle this activity for FTSPI and work together with FEED.” – Rowena Glipo
