If you're awesome and want to "join" #TeamTrees, use the first link in the video description or you can click on the YouTube donate link above! My favorite thing about this whole movement is that tons of people are coming together from all over the internet to unify for a common goal. I genuinely get excited when a diverse group of people come together to do something amazing, and I believe this could be our moment. If you're a working adult, please consider donating in a big way to this. I can think of no more efficient way for your dollars to be converted into ACTUAL, REAL LIFE TREES! LET'S plant 20 Million trees!!

Seeing the thumbnails and titles from some of the other channels involved in this, I expected it to be a cynical and shallow click-bait stunt. With you and Gavin on board, I believe far more in the project from both an ethical and scientific standpoint. I hope most of my 100 trees will outlive me!
