It’s always good to give a little back, especially when it’s for a great cause. That’s why it was so amazing to see content creator Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop give away $50,000 to small charity streamers. Their reactions were incredible and it’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Whether it’s on YouTube, Twitch, or any other platform, streaming is a great way to earn money for charity. It allows communities to rally together to reach a specific goal and spread awareness for good causes.

These charity streams often rely on the generosity of the audience and a lot of the time, the streamer themselves. So any donations, particularly to creators with a smaller community, mean so much in helping reach their goal.

Well, CouRage decided he would help some of these streamers hit their target by donating $5,000 to 10 separate charity streams.

CouRage makes huge donations to charity streamers

It never gets old seeing unsuspecting streamers get huge donations, especially when the money is going to a great cause they’re passionate about. As CouRage gifted $50,000 in total, it’s fair to say there were plenty of amazing reactions.

Every single donation is worth watching in the video but streamer CephasRed VS was a particular highlight. At the time he was hosting a singing stream for charity and performing Silent Night to his viewers. He certainly wasn’t expecting a massive donation and his reaction said it all:

“Woah, what the what, Woah wait a minute what… no way wow, CouRage coming in with the $5,000.”

It was obvious Cephas was overjoyed with the donation and revealed that this was his first-ever charity stream. It’s fair to say he exceeded his goal of $200 and blew the target out of the water.

CouRage’s video highlights how many great streamers there are raising money for amazing causes. It’s definitely worth watching in its entirety to see every single reaction.

It’s clear that the donations made the day of every single streamer in the video. Fingers crossed CouRage makes more of this content in the future and provides us with even more creators to check out.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
