Famous supermodel Gisele Bündchen revealed what she truly wants for her 40th birthday, and it's not what you might expect! The model announced on Saturday her less-than-glamorous birthday plans, and is planning on planting 40,000 trees in the Amazon! 

When one thinks of one of the most famous supermodels of all time, an image of Gisele Bündchen getting down in the dirt probably isn't what comes to mind first!

That won't stop the beauty from announcing her birthday plans! While it may not be glamorous, Bündchen is definitely going to celebrate in style!

40,000 trees for the Amazon

Bündchen revealed on Saturday to her Instagram her birthday plans, as of July 20, the supermodel will turn 40! 

Gisele Bündchen attends the 2019 Hollywood For Science Gala.

In honour of the milestone, Bündchen announces her goal of planting 40,000 trees in the Amazon to help combat habitat loss and climate change.

"I feel like a whole new chapter of my life is starting, and I wanted to celebrate it in a meaningful way, so I decided to plant 40,000 trees. I have been planting trees for different projects for years, as I feel that this is the best way I know to give back to Mother Earth," she captioned the photo.

"This year, to celebrate my birthday, my family and I had planned to plant trees in the Amazon rainforest in Brazil but, as we all know, that is not possible right now," she added, noting the novel Coronavirus.

"Then I had another thought! What if I could come up with a way for others to help me plant trees there? I’ve already talked to my family and my friends—and they will all turn their gifts into trees. That way, we can all help give something back to our planet," she said.

As some of you know, my birthday is coming up on July 20th. And it's not just any birthday! I can't believe I am turning 40! I feel like a whole new chapter of my life is starting, and I wanted to celebrate it in a meaningful way, so I decided to plant 40,000 trees. I have been planting trees for different projects for years, as I feel that this is the best way I know to give back to Mother Earth. This year, to celebrate my birthday, my family and I had planned to plant trees in the Amazon rainforest in Brazil but, as we all know, that is not possible right now. Then I had another thought! What if I could come up with a way for others to help me plant trees there? I've already talked to my family and my friends—and they will all turn their gifts into trees. That way, we can all help give something back to our planet. In case you also feel inspired to give back to the Earth, you can join me and plant a tree in the Amazon rainforest. Just go to www.vivaavida.gift to donate (link in bio). #vivaavidagb40 Talvez alguns de vocês já saibam, meu aniversário tá chegando, dia 20 de julho. E não é qualquer aniversário. Nem acredito que vou fazer 40 anos! Sinto que um novo capítulo está começando na minha vida e queria comemorar de um jeito especial, por isso decidi plantar 40.000 árvores. Há anos venho plantando árvores em diferentes projetos, pois sinto que essa é uma forma de retribuir a mãe Terra e, este ano, para celebrar meu aniversario tinha planejado ir como minha família plantar na Amazônia. Mas como sabemos, isso não é possível neste momento. Então, já que não dá para ir, pensei: que tal criar um jeito para que qualquer um possa me ajudar a plantar árvores lá? Já falei pra toda minha família e amigos: quem quiser me presentar pode me dar árvores. Desse jeito, nós todos podemos retribuir de alguma forma ao nosso planeta. Se você também se sentir inspirado e quiser contribuir com a ideia, pode se juntar a nós e plantar árvores. O link está lá na minha Bio! Viva a Vida! #vivaavida
