What’s with the ribbons tied around the tree?

We held a drive-thru donation that we called Jabba Dabba Doo! on June 13 to encourage Anglicans in London who had received their COVID-19 jab to pay it forward by supporting the Vaccine Equity Fund of our national church’s development and relief agency, PWRDF. The Vaccine Equity Fund assists the vaccine rollout in low-income countries with supplies such as PPE. Each ribbon tied to a tree on our front lawn represents one donation. (Money not kept at church.)
