Tim Sweeney continues to buy forests to preserve them!

Founded in 1990, Epic Games became one of the leading 3-D video and software company in the world with big name projects like Gears of War, Unreal Tournament and the recent world phenomenon, Fortnite.

The hardwork over the years has turned the founder and CEO into a billionaire that quickly transitioned into a philanthropist by purchasing land to protect the beautiful Carolina Mountains.

Since 2008, the Fortnite creator has spent millions of his wealth to support conservation projects all over his home state of North Carolina to guard and preserve its forests. The accumulated land mass reached 40,000 acres of land that resulted in him being the largest private land owner in North Carolina.

One example was in November 2016 where he donated 15 Million USD to conserve 7,000 acres of the Box Creek Wilderness. He also donated a notable sum of money for several conservation parcel projects that expanded the 1,500 acres of Mount Mitchell State Park.

These untouched pieces of land has prevented them from being ruined or developed that resulted in the protection of the animal and plant life in North Carolina.

This continued in 2017 where in he purchased 193 acres of Alamance County for a whopping 1.973 Million USD with the promise of the land would not be developed.

Lastly, in 2018, he saved 1,500 acres of Stone Hills that was to be developed into a golf resort by purchasing the land just to preserve and prevent the land to be developed.

It is clear that with Tim's transparency and openness speaks of his sincerity in his preservation efforts.

You and your wallets can rest easy knowing that the V-Bucks you spent on Fortnite content is going to a great cause!
