Jimmy Donaldson, the 21-year-old YouTuber who goes by the name MrBeast has reached 20 million followers in May. He has celebrated his achievement in a unique style. MrBeast, who is known for giving away money to his followers who are in need – from dropping money from drones to buying a house to a random Twitch user, he is everywhere.
Just to be clear we all realize 20 million trees won’t fix climate change. But at the end of the day 20 million more trees is better then 0! We want to take action because doing nothing is how we got here!

Meanwhile, a Reddit user has challenged MrBeast by creating a viral meme and urged him to plant 20 million trees and celebrate his 20 million followers with this way. MrBeast couldn’t ignore the great idea and being a philanthropist he welcomed the idea with open arms along with the inventor YouTuber Mark Rober.
This is how TeamTrees started lol https://t.co/2CVog5bQEp

“Unfortunately, despite having a large number of people we came nowhere near to planting 20 million trees but I don’t wanna let you guys down so I devised a plan where we can actually plant 20 million trees. But I need your help,” said MrBeast.
However, the things turn worse when the team tried to plant trees by themselves and they realised that it was an uphill task for them. He then decided to contribute the money which was raised to Arbor Day Foundation, will help him achieve his goal of making the earth more greenish.
He then asked his followers to help him, calling it “the largest YouTube collaboration of all time.” Arbor Day, which is the biggest tree-planting organisation in the world, is all set to plant one tree for $1 in a forest which needs it badly.
With the famous names like Elon Musk, Casey Neistat, Safiya Nygaard and YouTube itself backing the #TeamTrees project, the project is surely going to finish with flying colours.
