The Man Who Planted Trees

Amazing Earthlings. Pinoy Mrazians
High Five to Year Five. Last 24th June 2017, Jason Mraz - Philippines in partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources - NCR held its 5th Annual Tree Planting activity at the La Mesa Watershed in Quezon City. 

Jason Mraz - Philippines, the official fan group of Jason Mraz in the country, started this environmental activity last 2013 at the Luneta Park in Manila. Due to its success, admins of the group have decided to make it an annual activity to give chance for the Mrazians to do their share in the protection of the environment and also to meet their fellow Mraz fans. 

This event has also served as a way to celebrate Jason Mraz' 40th Birthday. Jason Mraz has become the group's inspiration because of his advocacy. 

A total of 150 trees were planted for this year's event. It is a combination of Narra, Molave, and Lanete trees. These Mrazians had to trek about 30 minutes to reach the planting site. DENR NCR assisted the group to make sure there's a proper education on how to plant a tree.

To date, a total of 370 trees, of different varieties, have been planted in 3 different locations (Luneta Park in Manila, Sapang Liwanag in Pasig City, and La Mesa Watershed in Quezon City).

Jason Mraz - Philippines conducted a short program at the nearby Chowking store. Lunch were served. Certificates of Participation have been awarded to the planters. Also, those Mrazians who have been able to attend all 5 planting activities were recognized and special gifts were given to them. 

Let's go back to the earth again, next year. See you, Pinoy Mrazians.
