MrBeast whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson has always been a strong supporter of humanitarian and charitable causes. Last year, his Team Sea’s initiative helped rid the oceans, rivers and lakes of nearly 3,000,000 pounds of trash. Using his massive platform, he even raised $30 million for Team Seas which greatly supported their mission to rid earth’s oceans, rivers and beaches of trash entirely.
In one of his most viral videos, MrBeast bought a Dominoes Pizza delivery driver a house and fitted it with furniture, food, entertainment systems and more and is still funding that man’s house to this day. That video is one of the most viewed videos on his channel, with over 100 million views.
In his latest video, the Godfather of Youtube gathered 1,000 people suffering from blindness and announced to them that he would be sponsoring a surgery that would cure them. The reactions of the patients were extremely wholesome and heart-wrenching both before and after the surgery they underwent. What they all had in common was an over-whelming sense of gratitude and relief when they could finally see their family members and friends for the first time.
It’s really sad to me that 50% of people who suffer from blindness can be cured with surgery but they can’t simply because they can’t afford it
is what MrBeast had to say in the video.
The video itself has become a hit as expected, with 25 million views in 15 hours.
