Gisele Bundchen was in Brazil this week to attend an event at the Center of Forest Experiment of the SOS Atlantic Forest Foundation.
Surrounded by more than 80 children between 8 and 11 years old, Gisele participated in the symbolic planting of seeds at the same place in which more than 10 thousand trees will be planted throughout the year. The activity serves to draw attention to the environment and educate the little ones about an important issue for our future. A partnership between the model and Cartoon Network Brazil to support the Forests of the Future Project.
Before the event started, Gisele gave some interviews and soon headed to the auditorium where children waited excitedly for her. Gisele’s entrance was dramatic. Colorful lasers made the moment special and magical as little ones cheered with delight as they saw the leader of the Gisele and the Green Team take the stage. When it came time to get their hands dirty by planting seedlings, every child wanted a hug from Gisele! All the children helped in this symbolic act, and in the end they shared a collective shout of “Viva Green”. Such a special morning for everyone!
