What is Team Trees ?October 29, 2019
What is the Goal of Team Trees fundraising?
Raise 20 Million Dollars to plant 20 Million Trees before the 1st of January 2020. It is one of the biggest collaboration between Youtubers initiated by MrBeast and MarkRober supported by Arbor Day Foundation
Who exactly is the Arbor Day Foundation?
We quickly realized that to plant trees in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way we would need to partner with the professionals. After speaking with a number of people in the environmental space, the Arbor Day Foundation stood out as being the best. They are the longest-running tree planting NGO, with 47 years of experience, and they have the same Charity Navigator rating as the American Red Cross.
How is it started?
When a Youtuber Jimmy Donaldson (aka MrBeast) reached 20 million subscribers, his fans urging him to plant 20 million trees as a way to commemorate his 20 million subscribers.
