Pay Tribute to a Loved One and Help the UC Botanical Garden Pocket $30K

In times like these when every organization's budget is getting cut to the bone and then some, those responsible for raising funds have to get creative and extra-resourceful. The folks at UC Botanical Garden are doing just that. They've found a benevolent family that is willing to give $30,000 to the garden if they can get commitments for 100 tribute bricks in their Tribute Plaza by June 30. The bricks aren't cheap ($500 or $900, depending on size), but they are a lovely memorial or honor, and a great way to commemorate graduations, retirements, weddings, even Father's Day. As of June 10, the Garden had commitments for 63 tribute bricks, which means they need 37 more by the end of the month in order to get the $30K. If you're looking for a meaningful way of paying tribute to someone in your life--and supporting an important public garden--this may be the perfect way.

    Excellent cause. It would be good karma and may extend to another bloom from their Amorphophallus titanum. Matti
