I went to see Guardians of the Galaxy. Twice. So sue me, I’m a geek. If you haven’t seen the movie, Vin Diesel voices the character Groot who is mobile, sentient tree. In response to James Gunn’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge (Gunn directed Guardians of the Galaxy), Vin Diesel upped the challenge to include planting a tree while standing beside what appears to be a newly planted tree.
Not only is this great for continuing to raise funds and awareness for ALS, this is a great opportunity for the plant industry to raise awareness for the benefits of trees. Also, in my opinion, I think that a tree is a much more meaningful and longer lasting way to help ALS.
So what do you think? Are you up to upping the challenge? If so, please share this and help get the new challenge out there.
