YouTube with MrBeast aim to plant 20 million trees

More than 600 YouTube influencers join hands to raise $20 million by the end of the year to plant 20 million trees.

YouTube’s favorite stunt philanthropist Jimmy ‘Mr.Beast’ Donaldson, who is popular for his charitable acts, is leading the biggest fundraising challenge of YouTube. Alongside Mr. Beast, famous YouTuber’s including Mark Rober, Rhett & Link, Marshmello, iJustine, Marques Brownlee, The Slow Mo Guys, Ninja, Simone Giertz, Jacksepticeye, Smarter Every Day and many more are also supporting the cause through their respective channels.

The plan for the fundraising event is pretty straightforward – the YouTuber will post videos starting from this afternoon using the hashtag #TeamTrees and ask their viewers to donate to the initiative. YouTube has confirmed that the company will bear all the transaction fees for donations.

The initiative began in May 2019 when multiple fans of Donaldson on YouTube, Reddit, and Twitter suggested he plant 20 million trees to celebrate reaching 20 million subscribers. Donaldson has always thrived on such challenges during his career and took on the task immediately. He, along with some friends even tried to see how many trees they could plant in one day and were able to manage only 300.

In a private video on his channel, Donaldson explained that through this initiative, the world could see that YouTube is not just a drama fest and even the influencers can make a change in the real world.



Donaldson has also included the Arbor Day Foundation in his #TeamTrees fundraising event. The Arbor Day Foundation is one of the largest nonprofit conservation organization dedicated to planting trees. In fact, the Foundation is in the midst of their own tree-planting challenge – plant 100 million trees by 2022.

The tree-planting drive for the #TeamTrees even will start in January 2020. The goal of the YouTube stars is to complete the procedure by ‘no later than December 2022.’

The YouTube community agrees that 20 million trees might not cure climate change. However, it will send a powerful message to the government organizations that something should be done about the issue.

To do your part for the mother earth, simply join hands with your favorite YouTuber by using the hashtag #TeamTrees and donate generously to the good cause.
