Hiber Partners with Reforestation Non-Profit One Tree Planted
Hiber and One Tree Planted are Raising Awareness for Earth Month by Engaging Thousands of Gamers in Themed Virtual Experiences
April 22, 2021 – Hiber AB, the team behind the User Generated Content and game creation platform, HiberWorld.com, has partnered with One Tree Planted to raise awareness for Earth Month. The initiative marks Hiber’s first foray into supporting social causes it believes align closely with its core values and looks to plant 1,000 trees around the world in an effort to make the real world a better place. Anyone interested can donate to the campaign at: forest-fundraiser.raisely.com/t/hiber
“It’s amazing to think that an idea six years ago has turned into a company, a wonderful community, and a platform that can help plant a forest somewhere on Earth. A forest that will live on for hundreds of years and be a home for all kinds of animals and plants.” said Mattias Johansson, Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer of Hiber AB. “We are honored to have the opportunity to partner with One Tree Planted, and show our loyal Hibernians that we support this very worthy cause to sustain our planet. We hope we inspire the community to contribute to their program for everyone’s future.”
Throughout April, Hiber is rolling out a number of initiatives in support of Earth Month, including releasing an Earth Month-themed game and game avatar on HiberWorld.com. This initiative also asks members of the platform to create their own Earth Month-themed virtual worlds, and invite their friends. Hiber will leverage the theme to inform players about the organization One Tree Planted and encourage them to take part in a community fundraiser, to join in on the tree planting efforts. Hiber’s employees have already kicked off the contribution to the fund by donating to the cause of reforestation around the world.
In addition to the HiberWorld.com initiatives, Hiber will donate the cost of one tree for every new follower and tagged friend on their TikTok and Instagram channels (@hiberofficial) throughout April, up to one thousand trees! One Tree Planted is joining in on this initiative by supporting the efforts of Hiber, as well as planting the actual trees.
Trees are essential to the health of our planet, biodiversity, and reducing the harmful effects of climate change. Reforestation is consistently identified by scientists as one of the top solutions to the climate crisis and the trees planted as part of this initiative will support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Hiber cares about the environment and wants to do what they can to create a more sustainable world.
Let’s make a better world together. To get involved, follow @HiberOfficial on Instagram and TikTok, check out the Earth Month game at www.HiberWorld.com, or support the Hiber fundraiser directly on the One Tree Planted website: forest-fundraiser.raisely.com/t/hiber
