Skittles Canada’s Tree Boy Needs Our Help

You may not be familiar with the name Douglas Birch, but you might have heard of Tree Boy. Yes, you read that right I’m talking about that quirky guy that lives in his backyard. He doesn’t shower or care about what he wears.  Best of all though, he has a Skittles branch sprouting out of his belly button! This guy loves to eat Skittles ALL THE TIME!

Tree Boy has had a blast living in his backyard and taking care of all the yard work, but he is ready for something more. He has a dream of going to college and meeting new friends. Of course, Tree Boy will be sharing his Skittles with them! He’s just that kind of guy.

Tree Boy can’t do it without our help and support. Visit and start collecting the Freedom Bands and support the campaign to free Tree Boy! There’s 6 colourful bands that you can get by buying specially marked packages of Skittles from now until July 31, 2011. Or you can also fill out the form on the Tree Boy website to have them mailed to you for free. Check out the site for full details.

Tree Boy also needs our help in deciding which college to attend and what he should study. As you can see from his video, his mom isn’t much help to him! Please vote and help him decide!! I’m thinking he should major in “Tree Med”! Voting ends on June 30, 2011 and you can get updates on what’s going on with Tree Boy as he awaits his fate on the Skittles Facebook page.

I did my part to help Tree Boy out and you can do yours too! Vote and show your support! Thanks Tree Boy for making those yummy Skittles (available in Original, Berry Explosion, Crazy Cores, Tangy Tropical and Fizzles)!
