How is it possible to grow real forests by playing a virtual game? This can be accomplished by generating ad-revenue while playing the game! This model is proven by freerice.com which has donated nearly 1 million dollars worth of rice (that's 95 billion grains) since it started. Following this same model we are to creating a game that donates money towards tropical reforestation. As a player advances in the game they generate ad-revenue which the non-profit, Third Millennium Alliance will use to plant trees in threatened tropical forest. As they grow into towering forests these trees will help keep the only drinking source for the local community running through the dry season. By planting tropical trees in the last 2% of Coastal Ecuador's forest Third Millennium Alliance also provides essential habitat to thousands of species on the brink of extinction
