A Forest For EXO by EXO-L

A birthday project by EXO-L: $1 plants 1 tree

As we greet the new year, the staff from r/EXO & our discord server have looked back at the amazing donations we made in 2018 & decided that we would like to continue our project into 2019. We started in March of 2018 and over the year together we donated a total of $3040 to 6 different organizations around the world.

This year we are planning to do things a bit differently:

  1. We will be hosting a 1 YEAR LONG fundraiser for the organization, One Tree Planted. That means this fundraiser will be active until the last EXO member birthday of the year!
  2. The staff will be hosting giveaways for EXO Fan Artist Commissions for those who donate (This means we will be giving away 12 fan artist commissions in total, 1 for every birthday).

Why did you pick ‘One Tree Planted’? For Chen’s Birthday in 2018, we donated to this organization and we fell in love with the initiative and work that they are doing all over the world. To make it simple: They plant 1 tree for every $1 that you donate.

I will donate less if we are only donating to ONE charity. In order to keep you interested, for every member birthday we will be changing the area in the world that we will be donating to. One Tree Planted plants trees ALL over the world! For example, for D.O’s birthday we can donate the trees to California and for Chen’s birthday we can donate the trees to Vietnam.

Why is the goal so low? We will be raising it for each member's birthday! Our goal is to donate about 400 trees for every birthday!

I don’t want my money to sit for 1 Year! One Tree Planted actually gives us the ability to host the fundraiser right on their website, meaning as soon as you donate money it goes directly to them rather than having anyone on our staff be a middle person.

Why aren’t you giving away albums anymore? We would like our project to benefit EXO-L as a community too. Therefore we think that giving away commissions from your favorite EXO-L Fan Artists will have more of an impact on people’s lives than giving away another album that you probably already have.

CURRENT FOCUS

Currently we are not collecting for any of the members birthdays but this project will remain open if you would like to continue to donate to it! We will be raising the goal and posting a new giveaway in MARCH for Xiumin's Birthday!

Follow the hashtag #erisgiveback on Twitter to stay up to date with what we are doing!

    Thank you so much to everyone who has donated already! Be sure to send us an email to rexomods@gmail.com so we can enter you into the giveaway. Also you may have noticed we lowered the goal -- this is just our goal for the month of January, where as before the goal reflected what we wanted to raise for the entire year. We will be raising the goal for every member's birthday going forward :)
