For every ten videos watched from any ABC widget beginning April 7 through April 30, a tree sapling will be planted, with the goal of planting up to 100,000 trees. Progress can be seen via counters on the widgets Additional information on Watch a Video, Plant a Tree and the Arbor Day Foundation can be found on ABC.com.
