You may recall this entry from our Influential Rain series 2 article back on July 1, that detailed how Chinese and global Rain fans were motivated to follow Rain’s (a.k.a. Jung JiHoon) lead concerning his environmental campaign promoting afforestation:

Rain fan clubs in China—China RainBar and RainCN—along with other global Rain fans across the planet decided to donate a forest this year. They got together with environmental powerhouse Roots & Shoots in Shanghai and The Million Tree Project in March 2011, and purchased 2000 trees to be planted in Inner Mongolia in Rain’s name, to help rebuild the environment there.

It came to our attention today that The Million Tree Project has delivered its first report on the new Cloud & Rain Forest in inner Mongolia, where the 2000 donated poplars have been planted over a 1.5 hectare area (roughly three acres) by local farmers, their families, and volunteers.

The trees were planted three months ago, and are growing well!

This forest will become an excellent windbreak and add much needed nutrients and stability to the soil, which would otherwise erode and be lost to ravages of the harsh storms in the region. It will also protect the crops belonging to the village nearby from destruction. This is one step among many to curtail the desertification in China, and will go a long way in giving the planet itself new life.

We at Cloud USA are extremely proud of our Asian and global Cloud sisters, more so than mere words could ever explain. We look forward to more reports as time goes on, and watching the Cloud & Rain Forest grow to maturity. Perhaps one day in the future, we’ll be able to help spearhead a fan expedition there, and join hands with many of our world sisters under the cool canopy of this new forest haven.

Amazing job, China RainBar, RainCN, and Rain’s global fans.

Congratulations, Rain! To see your campaign bear fruit is so inspiring. Wear your TIME 100 Most Inspirational People for 2011 title with your head held high.

You are a motivating force. You are worthy.
