Here's a way to improve your tarnished reputation: Donate $1 million for a worthy cause.
After a quick Twitter back and forth with MrBeast, a YouTuber known for making large donations to various causes, Elon Musk pledged to donate $1 million to #TeamTrees. The initiative aims to plant 20 million trees around the globe by Jan. 1, 2020, at a cost of a dollar per tree.
Ok, sounds legit, will donate 1M trees— Treelon (@elonmusk) October 29, 2019
It appears that Musk followed through right away, as MrBeast later tweeted the Tesla CEO is now the number one donor for the project.
Musk subsequently changed his Twitter handle to Treelon and explained his name (Elon, not Treelon) "literally means tree" in Hebrew. (Wait, isn't Treelon "tree tree" then? Never mind.)
