I need your help getting Elon Musk to invest in robots to remove millions of pounds of
trash from the ocean.
Your time is valuable, so let me quickly explain the crazy plan:
Two years ago, a lot of smart people put together a charity called Team Trees to raise 20 million
dollars to plant 20 million trees.
Talk about economies of scale.
Well, they actually raised 23 million dollars for the Arbor Day Foundation, which has since
planted 9 million trees and will plant all 23 million by the end of next year.
23 million trees is over 80 square miles.
There are National Parks smaller than that.
23 million trees are enough to absorb 1.6 million TONS of carbon from the atmosphere,
which is the same thing as taking 350,000 gas-powered cars off the road.
That's almost as many cars as Tesla delivered in the first half of this year.
Well, you know who made the biggest donation to Team Trees?
You guessed it.
Treelon Musk, who donated a million dollars and also inspired Marc Benioff, the CEO of
Salesforce, to donate another 900 thousand.
That's almost 10% of the entire Team Trees project, thanks to Treelon Musk.
Well, those same people are back and this is our chance to join them.
Team SEAS dot org is raising 30 million dollars by the end of this year to remove 30 million
pounds of trash from the ocean.
Half of the money raised is going to the Ocean Conservancy to organize massive volunteer
beach cleanups for the beaches that need it most.
Here's where the crazy plan comes in.
It turns out that 80% of the plastic that ends up in the ocean flows there from only
1% of the world's rivers, so the other 15 million dollars is going to a non-profit organization
called The Ocean Cleanup to put killer robots in those rivers…. uh… the robots kill
trash… not… rivers…
Those robots will intercept trash 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year round, before
it ever gets into the ocean.
Talk about a great investment.
Well, guess who already builds robots that have a HUGE positive impact on the planet?
That's right, the richest man on the planet, Sealon Musk.
After all, over 70% of the planet's surface is water.
Here's where I need your help.
Elon is always on Twitter, so I put out a tweet summoning Sealon Musk to rise from the
ocean's depths and donate to team seas dot org.
Find me on Twitter at Ticker Symbol YOU and retweet my pinned tweet so he sees it.
Just tap that little retweet button and tell everyone you can to do the same.
If you're going to make your own tweets, make sure to use HASHTAG TEAM SEAS and direct everyone,
including Elon, to www dot team seas dot org.
Bonus points if you also use the HASHTAG SEALON MUSK.
You can also share this short video with anyone else you think will help, including every
other Tesla, SpaceX, and Elon Musk fan you can think of.
It's for charity and your voice matters.
And of course, you can join me in funding these trash-killing robots directly by donating
to team seas dot org yourself.
This is a fundraiser video and every penny it makes will get donated to Team Seas dot
If this video makes enough money, I'll upload a separate video of myself softly crying as
I make that oversized donation.
So, whether you love Elon Musk, hate trash in the ocean, or just want to see me cry – you
monster – you should donate to Team Seas dot org and help me summon Sealon Musk to do the
If we work together, I really think we can make it happen.
And don't worry, after this, I'll go right back to making full-length videos about investing
in the companies making these world-changing robots, instead.
