YouTube star and internet humanitarian Mr Beast is popular for giving out off the wall amounts of cash and arranging impossible challenges — and this time, he combined the two for a righteous cause.
Jimmy “Mr Beast” Donaldson is one of YouTube’s most sensational content makers. He boasts of having over 31.5 million subscribers thanks to his very bold, flamboyant content and a generous cash donation.
However, the social media celebrity is also known and acknowledged for his staggering gesture of charity. He has known to have planted 20 million trees with his “Team Trees” project. He has also opened banks for families in need.
However, this time, the YouTuber twisted usual content: he collaborated with a local soup kitchen, families in need, and even arbitrary visitors with a distinctive challenge. They gave them the task of putting as many items they wanted inside a circle of unknown size.
They were told that If their items fit inside the circle, they would get to keep their draw. If not, their bounty would go back on the shelf. However, Mr. Beast being the generous content creator that he is, gave some special privileges to those in need during his video.
To begin with his charitable session, Mr Beast gave a challenge to a local soup kitchen to fit as much food as they could inside a huge circle in a grocery store. After enlarging their circle just to fit all the goods, he even donated a massive $20k to the organization, as he had promised in his luxury food taste-testing upload just a week earlier.
This is not all: he also went on to extend his help to an elderly couple whose home was hit by the flood. This act of kindness helped in replacing their ruined furniture with $25k worth of new pieces, which the group of the local soup kitchen somehow coped to fit inside his duct-taped circle.
That’s not even nearly the emotional part of his video. Tears began to flow after Mr. Beast gifted a whopping $10k to two women in need of in-home goods. He even signed a $10k check towards a new car and various medical expenses.
“I cannot believe this,” one of the women said through tears. “Nobody has ever helped me this much in my life. I waited all my life… I’m about to have a heart attack.”
The celebrity even went on to donate to an elementary school baseball team, an administration for people with learning disabilities. He also helped his friend equip supplies for his baby – surprising maintenance, considering his video was completely unsponsored, leaving him to pay up the bill.
This latest video marks yet another extraordinary act of charity and kindness from one of YouTube’s biggest celebutante, which ended at a price point of over $100,000.
