$20 million to plant 20 million trees by 2020. The #TeamTrees campaign is conquering the Internet. Celebrities and well-known CEOs joined in. The money has already been paid by, among others: the head of Twitter and Elon Musk, who transferred… a million dollars.
MrBeast, one of the most popular YouTubers in the world, who became famous mainly for giving away large amounts of money to random people, has just joined the pro-ecological campaign. However, the American does not do it thoughtlessly. He is also known for engaging in social activities in cooperation with brands. He recently recorded a video in which he and a group of friends bought all the goods from a supermarket and then donated them to a food bank. Food and basic supplies went to those most in need. He spent $70,000 then.
The latest film titled “Planting 20 million trees, my biggest project in life” has gained huge publicity. It has already been viewed by 27 million people. Interest in the campaign was expressed by, among others: Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, music producer Alan Walker, and Elon Musk. The head of Tesla, SpaceX and The Boring Company went a step further…
20 million trees
The action in question is the #TeamTrees initiative. The goal is to raise $20 million, which will enable the planting of 20 million trees by January 1, 2020. Trees will be planted in selected places that have been deemed most in need. There’s not much time left? Not if payments keep coming in at this rate. Currently, the foundation’s account has over $8 million.
All thanks to the fact that MrBeast’s film gained great publicity. Other YouTubers and celebrities joined the action, as well as… Elon Musk. However, he had to do it in his own style, i.e. spectacularly.
A million dollars, or a million trees. This payment was made by Elon Musk. He also did not refrain from making a funny comment, which will be appreciated by fans of The Lord of the Rings: “For Treebeard”. He previously asked on Twitter whether the action was credible. After confirmation from several famous people, as well as the official YouTube account, he states that he will make a payment that outclasses the impressive PLN 150,000. dollars paid by the CEO of Twitter.
In addition to the huge payment, the head of Tesla and SpaceX also changed his profile photo and name on Twitter, now he is Treelon Musk. Users of the website quickly noticed that his name means “oak” in Hebrew.
There are less than two months left until the end of the campaign, but you don’t have to worry about its success.
