But why stop there? gamigo and its communities will keep up the momentum with Eden Projects to pledge even more trees in affected regions through May 10, 2020!
"The global gaming community has the potential to become a significant contributor in the fight against climate change, species extinction, and poverty alleviation, and we are thrilled to see the positive response to gamigo’s event in support of Eden Reforestation Projects. It’s super easy, fun, and transformational when online gaming results in a cash paying job for impoverished villagers to plant and protect tens of thousands of trees that positively impact our planet and the issue of climate change.
We all know and understand that the Covid-19 Pandemic has become a global crisis and focus, but the partnership between gamigo and Eden provides the means for us to stand together in these difficult times by turning entertainment into positive social and environmental action. We are grateful to each person who has responded to the opportunity to plant trees and save lives as you play your favorite games. " says Steve Fitch, CEO of Eden Reforestation Projects.

Eden Reforestation Projects are actively combating the climate crisis as they restore forest systems one tree at a time, alleviating the devastating effects of deforestation. And every tree planted serves to protect, provide, nurture and sustain all of life. But the work done by Eden Reforestation Projects also rebuilds communities. Fair wages and a commitment to skill-building and employment for women and single parents helps keep farmers from selling themselves or their families into slavery just to survive.
