Youtuber Mr Beast wants to plant 20 mio trees
Mr Beast (his real name is Jimmy Donaldson) wants to celebrate his 20 mio subscriber mark with planting trees. He donates USD 200.000,-. He asks all his followers to help him to reach his goal. The idea came from one of his followers. #TeamTrees wants to collect USD 20 mio before December 31st. Within the first 24 hours they collected USD 3 mio. All the money donated will be given to the nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation, which has planted 250 million trees across the world over the past four-plus decades. Earlier this year, they launched another initiative to plant 100 million more trees by 2022, which will mark the 150th anniversary of the first Arbor Day tree planting holiday.
