The largest Youtube fundraising collaboration ever! Started by a popular YouTubers Mr Beast and Mark Rober this fundraising challenge has an amazing goal that aims to plant 20 million trees between January 2020 and December 2022.

The donations will go to the Arbor Day Foundation who will plant one tree for every dollar donated so the goal of 20 million trees will cost 20 million dollars. 20 million trees are estimated to cover 180 km2, wow! this is no small feat and they will certainly need all the support they can get.

There have been more than 72000 fires in the Amazon this year alone, that is up from the 40000 from last year The destruction of the Amazon rainforest is rapidly releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
We are destroying the ecosystem that absorbs millions of tons of carbon emissions every year and is one of the planets best defences against the climate crisis.
Earth Alliance founded by Leo De Caprio is aiming to protect all wildlife in the Forest and to push for climate justice and secure indigenous rights.
The increase in the number of fires in the Amazon is directly related to international deforestation and not the result of extremely dry season!!!
