I got an email this morning from a guy named Chief, who shared the following music video with me and explained what he was doing. He writes:
Every two seconds, an area of forest the size of a football pitch is lost due to logging or destructive practices. That’s over 80 acres by the time you’ve finished watching this video. I’m going to be planting one sycamore tree for every person who subscribes, likes, or shares the video.
Doing all three will be counted as separate trees, just be sure to tell me in a comment if you share the video. I’ll be planting them in parts of Scotland which have been devastated by deforestation, with progress being posted across social media. Thanks for helping me make a difference.
After watching the video, I was so inspired, I just HAD to share it with you. How awesome of a man is this?! He’s creative, inspired, and most importantly, compelled by an amazing purpose to stop the deforestation and to replant what has been destroyed.
The song, as you are likely aware, is a deep and true-to-form re-creation of “Colors of the Wind”, from Pocahontas. I gotta say… I freaking love it!
Here is a download link to the song, which will touch Chief’s heart so much that he will be compelled to plant a tree as a way to say thank you. Oh, and don’t forget to share this video! That will also compel another tree being planted!
Otherwise… How will we ever know how high the sycamore really grows?
I mean, you might as well go out and plant some trees yourself! Gather some friends and make a weekend of it!
Here are several of the links from the bottom of his video on Youtube, you can see the rest on the video here! <3
Thank you for watching, sharing, and downloading!
