Curacao – the largest Hispanic-centric retailer on the West Coast serving diverse communities in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Tucson, are announcing a partnership for Mother’s Day with reforestation nonprofit One Tree Planted.
To honor and show gratitude for Mother Earth and all mothers across California and Arizona, Curacao is donating up to 10,000 trees in both California and Arizona from Earth Day to Mother’s Day as part of the Curacao “One Purchase, One Tree” event. And we do not want you to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to save the enviroment while saving money!
Founded in 2014, One Tree Planted is a nonprofit organization that plants trees on 4 continents around the world for environmental and social impact. And through this unique alliance with them, not only does Curacao continue to be at the forefront of the retail industry in the U.S., but it also shows its continued commitment to support the communities it serves as well as its heartfelt concern for the enviroment and the urgent need to redouble efforts to reforest our planet.
This is why from April 22 (Earth Day) to May 12 (Mother’s Day), Curacao will be reforesting two states at once and one-gift-at-a-time by planting a tree for each purchase made by customers at multiple stores during these dates.
In an event that will enjoy widespread media coverage across TV, radio, digital and print, our ultimate goal is to gift Mother Earth 10,000 trees.
“At Curacao, we are always looking for new ways to expand our mission and generate a larger impact in the world around us. And in times of deep concern for our planet’s future, there is nothing better than nurturing and honoring all mothers on special ocassions like Earth Day and Mother’s Day,” Ariela Nerubay, Curacao’s CMO, said. “We want to celebrate all mothers while keeping the Earth green, and we want customers to help us achieve this much needed ambitious goal.”
The Curacao’s “One Purchase, One Tree” Event is one of the multiple annual initiatives, social and charity programs created by the Curacao Foundation —a nonprofit organization founded in 2002 by retailer Curacao–, to support the Hispanic community throughout the year and enhance the quality of life of our Latino customers across Southern California.
