Originally, our dining room’s colorful tree wall painting project started just as a fun aesthetic for our restaurant. But the gaze grabbing, sizable art piece was decidedly going to be given a greater purpose in our restaurant. Thus, from this idea, we dubbed it the “Charity Tree.”
We believe the Charity Tree will be a fun and effective way to bring attention to important local causes and efforts. When you come visit the Jolly Plate, you may donate a dollar or more towards the local charity that we have chosen to promote. In turn, you can sign your name on a paper leaf/flower/snowflake/etc. (depending on the season) which will then be hung upon the Charity Tree. As more people donate, the tree will become more beautifully filled with colorful decorations. In addition to raising money for charity, this will hopefully help to increase awareness of various charitable efforts and causes as well, using the tree’s attention getting aesthetic as a means to do so.
Our current charity effort is “Lungs for Kirabell” :
