“As some of you know, my birthday is coming up on July 20th. And it’s not just any birthday! I can’t believe I am turning 40!” Gisele wrote on Instagram. “I feel like a whole new chapter of my life is starting, and I wanted to celebrate it in a meaningful way, so I decided to plant 40,000 trees. I have been planting trees for different projects for years, as I feel that this is the best way I know to give back to Mother Earth. This year, to celebrate my birthday, my family and I had planned to plant trees in the Amazon rainforest in Brazil but, as we all know, that is not possible right now.”

Gisele made the announcement along with photos of she and husband Tom Brady planting trees with kids Benjamin, 10, and Vivian, 7.

“Then I had another thought! What if I could come up with a way for others to help me plant trees there?” Gisele continued. “I’ve already talked to my family and my friends—and they will all turn their gifts into trees. That way, we can all help give something back to our planet. In case you also feel inspired to give back to the Earth, you can join me and plant a tree in the Amazon rainforest.
