In case you don’t know who he is, Jimmy Donaldson, better known by his YouTube channel name MrBeast, has become famous for using his internet fame and income for random acts of kindness. He is an extremely big Youtuber with over 20 million subscribers. Most of his videos are challenges with big prizes like cars and boats; he even gave the winners a house once. However he also does things to help the world. One time he bought everything from a food store, cleared all of the shelves until there was nothing left, and paid the people who were shopping there with him. And after he bought everything, he donated all of it to a homeless shelter. It’s amazing how much time and effort he puts into helping others.

When his channel’s popularity hit 20 million subscribers earlier this month, he asked his fans how he should celebrate the occasion. His viewers responded by petitioning for him to raise $20 million by January 1st (a dollar for each one of his 20 million subscribers) and use it to plant 20 million trees. Jimmy obviously accepted the challenge.

Since launching the #TeamTrees campaign 3 weeks ago, popular YouTubers on the web have joined Mr. Beast in making donations of their own. Not only that, Elon Musk, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Shopify CEO Tobi Lutke, and YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki have all made big contributions to the cause. According to the #TeamTrees website, the campaign has already raised enough money to plant more than 15 million trees.
