MrBeast announced he would donate 10 cents to charity and people in need for every new subscriber he gets on his YouTube channel in 2021 and started it off by giving away $300,000 in his latest video.

Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is all about giving money to people and changing their lives. He’s already done everything from buying out five retail stores and giving all the goods away, to buying a fan a new house.

If you thought he’d be slowing down in 2021, you’d be wrong. MrBeast has announced he would donate ten cents to charity for every new subscriber he gets in 2021 to people who genuinely need it.

MrBeast is all about changing people’s lives by giving them ridiculous amounts of money and goods.

“For the entire year of 2021, every time someone subscribes to this channel, I’m donating 10 cents to charity.

“Last month, 3 million people subscribed to the channel, which means I’m going to give away this $300,000 mountain of money to people in need.”

For the rest of the video, he donated $30,000 to a struggling small business owner, $300,000 to cover everyone’s rent in two apartment complexes, $10,000 to a teacher in charge of a high-school class, and even provided a PS5 and Macbook to every student in her class.

He also visited a college campus and paid for two students’ $15,000 college debts, tipped a delivery drive $10,000, bought 25 carts worth of products at Dick’s Sporting Goods and donated them to The Salvation Army, and tipped a fast-food worker $10,000.

MrBeast bought out several entire stores in the past, including a GameStop.

All of this is possible because of his new philanthropic goal in 2021.

“By literally hitting that subscribe button, you are taking 10 cents out of my pocket and giving it to people like we had in the video.”

“If you’re already subscribed, don’t unsubscribe and resubscribe. That will do nothing. It will only work if you’re a new subscriber. I dare you guys to try to bankrupt me by subscribing.”

MrBeast’s philanthropy is already out of this world. However, he keeps finding ways to take it to new levels, and his latest announcement is a testament to that.

So, if you want to help others but don’t have a lot of money to spend, why not subscribe to his channel and let him use his instead? That way, everybody wins.

YouTuber Jake Paul and former UFC star Ben Askren are set to take to the boxing ring on April 17, but they’re already in a war of words ahead of the bout.

It’s no Conor McGregor, but Jake Paul is going big for his next boxing bout.

After taking down Nate Robinson with relative ease, the YouTube star turned hopeful boxer will take to the ring against Ben Askren on April 17.

However, in the lead up to the fight, the two have already thrown punches over text.

Ben Askren leaked DMs between the two on February 24, claiming “this next generation has some really bad role models.”

“Hey Jake seriously were you even trying against Ben [Darmstadt]? That was pathetic. Hope you try a little bit harder in our fight,” the former UFC fighter opened with in the exchange.

“Hiya bubba! So good to hear from you! I know Masvidal gave you brain damage so I’m guessing you meant to ask if I was even trying against Nate,” Paul replied.

“We’re going to get you through this fight nice and fast so you can retire after.”

Askren clarified that he was talking about Ben Darmstadt, before Jake Paul went on a tangent, asking his opponents if he’s ever taken drugs, saying he needs “help taking his edge off.”

While Askren ignored most of Paul’s questions, he had the final jab ahead of the bout.

“You gave up here like you’re going to give up in our fight. You don’t have the heart. Please don’t back out of our fight.”

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren is locked in for April 17, and is set to be one of the biggest PPV fights in history.
