YouTube philanthropist and creator of #TeamTrees initiative has successfully raised $20 million with help from big names like Ninja, Alan Walker, Marshmello, Elon Musk (Tesla) and thousands of fans.
Mr. Beast smashes his $20 Million #TeamTrees target
Jimmy’s fight against climate change in the form of the #TeamTrees campaign met its first success earlier this Thursday. MrBeast has triumphantly achieved the “$20 million” goal and continues to receive more donations.
Donaldson shared his emotions in a Twitter post. Thanking everyone and encouraging fans to keep going, Mr. Beast writes:
We did it!! Thank you so much to the over 500,000 different people that donated. Teamtrees is more than planting 20 million trees, it is a movement that shows we care and we want to make change.
Some reactions from Mr. Beast’s followers are quite noticeable. Craig Thompson @MiniLaddd calls him a hero.
You’re incredible Jimmy! You and Mark Rober have done something bigger than yourselves. You brought the world together and made a change. You’re a hero.
