Team Seas

Samay Dadlani '24 Contributor Beginning with the #TeamTrees, and now on to a more massive stage, viral content creator and certainly YouTube’s most popular philanthropist Jimmy Donaldson, more commonly known as Mr. Beast, is back with a grander campaign called Team Seas.   For those familiar with YouTube’s sensation Mr. Beast, you may recollect his goal of planting 20 million trees in 2019.
