The corona pandemic thwarted supermodel Gisele Bündchen's birthday plans, who turned 40 on Monday.
"I wanted to go to the Amazon region," the Brazilian with German roots told the Brazilian broadcaster "TV Globo" in an interview broadcast on Sunday. "I had already prepared everything to plant a tree and take my children with me."
Now Bündchen wants to plant thousands of seedlings in the Brazilian Amazon Basin in 2021, she said. «Everyone wanted to give me something for my 40th birthday. Then I said: The only gift you can give me is: help to plant trees. » This is how the idea for the “Viva a Viva” platform came about, on which donations can be made for the trees.
