Trees Planted In Haiti For Jared Leto’s 40th Birthday
He’s turning 40??
He looks like he’s in his late 20s.
Anyway, fans of Jared Leto’s band, 30 Seconds To Mars, call themselves The Echelon.
For Jared’s 40th, The Echelon is collaborating with Timberland, the boot company, and Trees for the Future Partnership on their Yele Vert reforestation and agricultural training project in Haiti.
Less than 2% of Haiti’s natural forest is still alive today, and seeing as trees are the main source of food and fuel in Haiti, it’s kind of a big deal.
Apparently, Jared Leto lived in Haiti as a kid, so it’s very close to his heart.
If you donate to the charity, your Twitter handle with be added to birthday cards that will be presented to Jared, along with a big check.
Sounds like a great way to celebrate an awesome guy’s birthday and really help the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.
