1/52: Donate 20 Trees

I gave myself an easy one to complete first.  I like the idea of micro donations to charities and wanted some of them to feature in my 52 Things this year.  One of particular interest was the donation of trees via Answer4Earth in an attempt to end global warming.  It doesn't cost anything to play, you just answer multiple choice general knowledge questions and 180 correct answers earns 1 tree.  The project is financed by the adverts on the site.

For me, this was really just a commitment in terms of time as the computer response time was quite slow.  The questions weren't difficult, although there was a US bias to them, and there was a lot of repitition where the same ones were asked over and over again, so it became a test of memory! 

I set myself the challenge of donating 20 trees and I completed that today.  I very much doubt that I'll carry on with this as, to be honest, it got a bit boring!  Still 1 down, 51 to do.
