I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

Hi there,
I think what you are doing is a great idea, and I'm sure you can do without the criticism of some 'environmentally aware' citizens!
Anyway, regardless of the whole anthropogenic climate change debate and the offsetting thing- I am interested in setting up a similar initiative. I am a teacher in a British school in Thailand, and we are planning on planting a tree to represent each pillar of the 'Round Sqaure' program. IDEALS (Internationalism, Democracy, Environmentalism, Adventure, Leadership and Service). I was just wondering if you know of any charities offhand that could help plant the trees for us over here, as all the ones you have mentioned have been UK or US charities. We plan on raising the money by recycling our used paper (a mountain of which gets wasted everyday in any school) and making cards out of the recycled paper and selling them to the student body. Do you know which species would be the best to plant in this tropical climate? We were thinking about a different species per pillar but their growth rates would be completely different! Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks very much and keep up the good work, we need more people like you in this world
