November 23, 2010 -- New York, NY -- This Thanksgiving, Jewish National Fund (JNF) will be thanking their donors for all of the support they show throughout the year. For every tree a donor purchases to be planted in Israel, JNF will plant one in Israel, as well. "We always say that planting trees is the perfect way to honor or memorialize a loved one," said JNF CEO Russell Robinson. "What better way to show our love for the people who support us year after year than by planting trees in their honor?"

The tree-matching promotion will run from Wednesday, November 24 through Sunday, November 28. Donors may participate by visiting or calling 1-800-542-TREE (8733).

JEWISH NATIONAL FUND (JNF) began in 1901 as a dream and vision to reestablish a homeland in Israel for Jewish people everywhere. Jews the world over collected coins in iconic JNF Blue Boxes, purchasing land and planting trees until ultimately, their dream of a Jewish homeland was a reality. JNF gives all generations of Jews a unique voice in building a prosperous future for the land of Israel and its people.

JNF embodies both heart and action; our work is varied in scope but singular in benefit. We strive to bring an enhanced quality of life to all of Israel’s residents, and translate these advancements to the world beyond. JNF is greening the desert with millions of trees, building thousands of parks, creating new communities and cities for generations of Israelis to call home, bolstering Israel’s water supply, helping develop innovative arid-agriculture techniques, and educating both young and old about the founding and importance of Israel and Zionism.

JNF is a registered 501(c)(3) organization and United Nations NGO, which continuously earns top ratings from charity overseers.
