Something that’s been going viral recently is the teamtrees.org project. What it boils down to is every $1 donated means 1 tree planted. How cool is that? So we thought we’d like to do our part too.
Here’s what’s going on:
Big Cheer for Teamtrees.org
Teamtrees.org is working with the Arbor Day Foundation. They will use the donations to plant trees in forests where they’re most needed across the planet.
The #teamtrees goal is to plant 20 million trees around the globe by January 1st, 2020. They know it’s not going to wipe away climate change like a magic wand. But what it does do is show people that if we stand together we can make big things happen.
It’s been really inspiring to see how many people around the world have joined the movement. Even the big players have stepped in: Elon Musk donated $1 million, the Twitter CEO $350k, and the YouTube CEO $200k. That’s 1,550,000 new trees right there to help keep our air clean.

You Can Make a Difference
We’ve set an ambitious goal — let’s plant 50,000 trees! Together we can literally plant a forest. For every year of encryption protection you buy, you’ll be planting at least one tree. It varies with products, but the bottom line is that each SSL you buy lets us donate more trees to this awesome project.
What a great way to step into the true spirit of December — millennials may not know this but it used to be called the Season of Goodwill.
This heart project of ours runs until December 20th. It gives us enough time to gather and donate the funds to send to Team Trees for their January 1st deadline.
Our community star who ends up donating the most trees will get a #teamtrees hoodie for you and a friend (value $100) as a token of our thanks . And the second place runner up will get two #teamtrees t-shirts (value $50). We’ll ship them to you free of charge, anywhere in the world.
The teamtrees.org project has really captured our hearts because it shows that if people stand together around the world, we can make big things happen.
Whether you donate one tree or fifty, we’ll be super grateful to you for helping us make a difference by planting 50k trees.
Join us until the 20th December to watch the Team Trees count go up. Let’s get planting guys!
