A special community tree inside Planet Altered is benefiting a worldwide organization called Charity: Water. Each brightly-colored paper leaf on the tree represents a donation someone has made. Planet Altered hopes to raise $5000 with the tree, which would be enough money to buy a well for a village in a developing country where clean water is scarce.
Deborah Tepper is a papercut artist who lives on Chattanooga’s Southside, and she created the tree. I talked to her at Planet Altered about this very special tree.
