We mentioned it a few days ago, but now more details of StumbleUpon’s “Thumb-Up For Trees” campaign with former NFL star Tiki Barber have come to light.

If you hit their official page, you’ll see that SU has partnered up with the organization Friends of the Forest to plant a tree for every thumb their “Tree” page receives. So far, almost 2000 6000 thumbs have been turned into 6,000 trees! From the site,

“Simply use the StumbleUpon toolbar to thumbs-up this page and, from now through May 2, with every thumbs-up StumbleUpon will plant a tree with help from the National Forest Foundation. Your thumbs-up means more trees for America’s National Forests and more visibility for this cause. Give a “Thumbs-Up for Trees” and spread the word!”

Of course, Tiki isn’t just offering his name, he’s also auctioning off a lunch date and his seats at a NY Giants home game. All proceeds raised will go to helping the National Forest Foundation. Check out Tiki’s video below — and then jump over to SU and help plant some trees!
