Rainforest Trust is joining forces with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn to give movie fans the chance to win a poster signed by the cast. Proceeds will go directly to rainforest conservation around the world.
Each $5 ticket grants one entry into the poster raffle (multiple entries are encouraged to increase the chance of winning) and ticket proceeds go directly to Rainforest Trust’s critical habitat protection efforts.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 poster, which has been generously donated by Gunn, is signed by Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), David Bautista (Drax), Sean Gunn (Kraglin), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Michael Rooker (Yondu), Kurt Russell (character unconfirmed) and the director himself.
Guardians of the Galaxy’s support of Rainforest Trust dates back to the beginning of the series when Vin Diesel (voice of Groot) sprouted the idea for the “Plant a Tree for Groot” challenge in 2014. Gunn soon upped the ante, saying that he would donate $5,000 dollars if 50 people planted trees in Groot’s honor. Since then, Gunn has been a supporter of multiple Rainforest Trust projects such as the creation of a safe haven for Matschie’s Tree-kangaroos in Papua New Guinea and the My Chocolate Acre campaign with Endangered Species Chocolate. Gunn’s Guardians poster raffle shows that even $5 can have a positive impact on the conservation of rainforests.
