Bellevue, Washington — April 11, 2018 — Earth Day is April 22nd and more than a billion people in 192 countries will celebrate the occasion. This year, T-Mobile’s making it easier than EVER to make a difference and on T-Mobile Tuesday, April 17th, absolutely anyone – Un-carrier customers or not – who tweets #TreeMobile will automatically trigger T-Mobile to plant a tree. The Un-carrier will donate up to 50,000 trees – that’s enough to fill 70 football fields with Long Leaf Pine trees – to help The Nature Conservancy reach their goal of planting one billion trees by 2025.
And, to keep the easy givin’ going that day, T-Mobile is donating another $250,000 to the planet, and customers and employees get to help decide how it’s used by picking their favorite from four worthy Nature Conservancy projects in the T-Mobile Tuesdays app:
- Clean Energy: Build research into innovative clean energy solutions across the U.S.
- Plant a Billion Trees: Restore forests around the globe – they sustain life on earth, and they’re disappearing
- Restore our Coral Reefs: Strengthen and protect the largest and most threatened marine living structures on the planet
- Save the Panther: Protect the beautiful Florida Panther, one of earth’s most endangered animals – only 180 remain
On top of that, T-Mobile customers and anyone else who wants to make even more of an impact on April 17th can just text “NATURE” to 50555 to make an additional $5 donation to The Nature Conservancy. The donation will be charged to your next monthly bill.
