Wheel of Fortune creator GSN goes green with Earth Day tournament

Earth Day planting treesFor the third year in a row, you can help plant trees for Earth Day right from the comfort of your butt-grooved computer chair. GSN Digital, creators of the Wheel of Fortune Facebook game, has teamed up with the Arbor Day Foundation to host its third annual Play, Plant and Protect tournament series starting today, Earth Day, through Arbor Day on April 29.

"We're proud to partner with the Arbor Day Foundation for the third time and build on the nearly $50,000 we've contributed thus far," said Peter Blacklow, executive VP of GSN Digital and president of WorldWinner. "Our special edition Play, Plant and Protect tournaments give our players the chance to give back to a cause we're passionate about – replenishing our nation's forests and protecting our environment."

The tournament will be playable through GSN Digital's cash tournament website, WorldWinner. Starting today, you can play games like Wheel of Fortune, Bejeweled 2 and Family Feud to help replant one of the most desperate forests in the US. Of course, you will have to throw in an entry fee--these are cash tournaments--but every dollar donated goes to planting one tree.

Well, at least 10 percent of it does, while the rest likely goes to the prize pools like Wheel of Fortune's $10 thousand reward. Hey, there has to be some motivation to throw in a few bucks for some tournament play. If you're interested in planting a few trees without even getting your hands dirty, register with WorldWinner right here and have a payment method ready.
