Hi Lucky Toe, thanks for the add :)
Yes, I hope I can join this too. since our company is in partnership with Haribon, I personally donate part of my salary every year for tree planting and conservation projects of Haribon. But I haven't had the chance to join their actual activities so I hope I can be in this one. Thanks :)
