Drake is taking all proceeds from an upcoming shirt release and donating it to the Amazon conservation team!
As Drake gears up to take the stage at the Rock in Rio Festival Sept. 27 through Oct. 6, he’s making a pledge to give back to the Amazon wildfire.
In a recent post to Instagram, Drake alongside his merch company TourLife announced that they would be donating all proceeds from his Rock in Rio shirt to the organization Amazon Conservation Team.
“Dropping tomorrow at 12PM PST/ 3PM EST onto support local Amazonian communities on the front lines in the fight against fires and deforestation in the Amazon with all proceeds of the Drake exclusive tee going towards Dr. Mark J. Plotkin’s foundation The Amazon Conservation Team.”

If you recall, Brazil’s Amazon rainforest suffered a tremendous loss after fires burned at the highest rate seen since 2013. This would mark 72,843 fires this year alone with over half of them being in the Amazon region.
As more news is announced about this amazing donation we will keep you up to date!
