Apple Donating Money to Preserve Amazon Rainforests Following Devastating Fires
Apple plans to donate money to "help preserve and restore" the Amazon forest across Latin America, Apple CEO Tim Cook said today on Twitter.
Cook's announcement comes following devastating fires that have been raging in Brazil for the past several weeks destroying the vulnerable rainforest.
Brazil declared a state of emergency earlier this month over the growing number of fires, which are impacting the Brazilian states of Amazonas, Para, Mato Grosso and Rondônia.
Cook did not say how much money Apple plans to donate, but in similar situations in the past, Apple has offered $1 million or more to organizations like the Red Cross for fire relief purposes.
