Helft uns 20 Millionen Bäume pflanzen -teamtrees.org

Heute möchte ich euch das Projekt #teamtrees von dem Youtuber MrBeastYT vorstellen.

Er hat vor ein paar Tagen die Initiative ins Leben gerufen 20 Millionen Bäume auf allen Kontinenten der Welt zu pflanzen (außer die Antarktis).

Bereits heute wurden knapp 8 Millionen Bäume über teamtrees.org und über **2 Millionen ** durch YouTube-Spenden finanziert.

Namhafte Leute wie Elon Musk (Twitter-Link), welcher bereits selber 1 Millionen Bäume spendete, sowie Jack Dorsey (CEO Twitter), welcher 150000 Bäume spendete, und noch viel mehr, unterstützen diese Aktion.

Ganz nach dem Motto: Wir zerstören die Welt? Wir können Sie auch retten. Packen wir das an!

Spendet noch heute 1$ für ein Baum unter teamtrees.org und lasst uns zusammen die Welt zu einem schönerem Platz machen!

How did #TeamTrees get started?

#TeamTrees started in May 2019 when the internet challenged MrBeast to plant 20 million trees to commemorate hitting the 20M subscriber milestone. Fans then suggested he band together with a bunch of other YouTubers and influencers to make it happen. A growing group of them have been working hard for the past five months to set up the framework for this insane goal to have a fighting chance of success.

Who exactly is the Arbor Day Foundation and why did you choose them over other tree planting NGOs?

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.

Does my donation go directly to the Arbor Day Foundation?

Yes. Donations through either TeamTrees.org, the YouTube donate button, Arbor Day’s #TeamTrees Facebook fundraiser, or the #TeamTrees tiltify fundraiser are sent directly to the Arbor Day Foundation to fund tree-planting. One dollar plants one tree.

Is this donation tax-deductible?

Since the Arbor Day Foundation is a 501©(3) nonprofit charitable organization, there’s a good chance your monetary donation is tax deductible, but we recommend that you consult your tax professional, who’s familiar with your specific tax situation, to be sure. The Foundation’s Federal Tax ID number (also known as an EIN, Employer Identification Number) is 23-7169265.

What does my donation actually go towards?

For every dollar you donate, one tree will be planted in a forest of high need around the globe. It’s that simple!

Where are the trees being planted?

Due to the sheer volume of trees planted (20 million), they will be planted in a variety of forests on public and private lands in areas of great need. Many of these forests will be state and national forests managed by government agencies. The goal is to plant trees on every continent not named Antarctica!

Who will plant the trees?

The Arbor Day Foundation works closely with professional forestry partners including the U.S. Forest Service, and other government agencies and NGOs. They collect donations and send the funds to their reforestation partners, enabling them to cover the costs required to plant the trees.

When will the trees be planted?

Trees will be planted throughout the year starting in January of 2020 and completed no later than December 2022. We treat your donation with the greatest respect, so we’re working with the Arbor Day Foundation to ensure high survivability rates for all the trees planted as part of Team Trees. Sure, you could plant trees faster, but you’d be risking the integrity of this vision.

What species are going to be planted?

The Arbor Day Foundation always emphasizes planting native species where local conditions and forest plans allow. Their motto is to plant the right trees, in the right place, for the right reasons.

Why are you planting trees instead of preserving ones that already exist?

It is vitally important to protect, manage, and restore forests globally. We are focused on restoration because, according to the National Academy of Sciences, forest restoration has the most global climate mitigation potential compared to all other natural climate solutions1. Restoring lands through tree planting is the Arbor Day Foundation’s area of expertise and something they’ve been doing for nearly five decades. There’s no silver bullet for fixing climate change, just silver buckshot, so we should actively pursue many different approaches including both preservation and restoration.

I’m not signing up for junk mail am I?

No. And we will never sell your data. Many people are requesting updates on our progress, so we will send those (sparingly) if you tell us you want them when you make your donation.

How do I make my donation with Apple Pay?

Apple Pay payments can only be processed through the Safari browser. To use Apple Pay, open Safari on your desktop or mobile browser and select the Apple Pay logo at the top of the Donate widget.

How do I get in touch with #TeamTrees?

If you have questions about your donation, contact donations@teamtrees.org. For media inquiries, contact press@teamtrees.org. For everything else, email info@teamtrees.org.

Update an dieser Stelle:

Shopify CEO Tobi Lorax übernimmt die Führung und hat unglaubliche 1.000.001 Bäume gespendet!

Dazu ist kurze Zeit später Susan Wojcicki (YouTube CEO) mit 200.000 Bäume dazu gestoßen.

YouTube selber spendet noch mal 1.000.000 Bäume.

Danke, sehr cooles Projekt!

Ein anderes Baumpflanzprojekt ist Philisophando (bei Startnext) - wobei Philisophando eigentlich aber das Ausschneien von CO2 zum Ziel hat (mehr dazu unter philisophando.com), und zunächst über das Baumpflanzprojekt versucht, ein Netzwerk von potenziellen Unterstützern aufzubauen.

Da wir eine Vielzahl von Lösungen brauchen (was auch teamtrees sagt), finde ich den Ansatz von Philisophando auch interessant/sinnvoll.
