Jimmy Donaldson, or more commonly known as MrBeast, is a 21-year-old YouTuber who is using his platform for good. Hs is known mostly for his very generous donations he makes in his videos. He is partnered with companies including Quidd and Honey, who sponsor his videos and help him make the money for his donations by doing his grand gestures in his videos.
So far, he has donated over $1 million to the homeless, video game streamers, his friends and family or just random people.
Recently, he started a new campaign called #TeamTrees, where every $1 that is donated plants a tree. His goal is to plant 20 million trees by the end of this year.
So far, he has already gotten almost $6.5 million in donations. The money goes to the Arbor Day Foundation, who plants trees in forests that need them the most.
He’s even gotten Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, to donate $1 million on Tuesday.
