Hundreds of YouTubers Just Planted 5.6 Million Trees to Fight the Climate Crisis

By

YouTuber MrBeast is known for casually giving away hundreds of thousands of dollars in his videos — for example, "I Gave My Brother 24 Hours To Spend $100,000" and "Destroying My Friend's Car And Surprising Him With A New One." But the latest video put out by the "viral philanthropist" marks a new chapter in MrBeast's videos, as he's aiming to raise the money to plant 20 million trees as a way of combating the climate crisis. 

In the video, titled "Planting 20,000,000 Trees, My Biggest Project Ever!" Jimmy "MrBeast" Donaldson explains that when he hit 20 million YouTube subscribers earlier this year, his subscribers began spamming him all over the internet to plant 20 million trees. So, for the past few months, MrBeast, some of his fellow YouTuber friends, volunteers in Oregon, and the Arbor Day Foundation have been working together to make that reforestation happen.
