Popular YouTuber and family vlogger Roman Atwood has launched a new T-shirt design, which is playing a huge role in one of his upcoming initiatives.

Atwood outlined his plan for the clothing during a vlog on March 22, where he explained that his Smile More ‘glitch’ graphic T-shirts are being used to help donate to small-time Twitch streamers.

“We’re taking two dollars from every one of these tees, so if you buy one of these tees, two dollars of it will go to a grinding streamer,” Atwood said. “I’m looking for the guys and girls grinding for like, four people.”

Atwood then rolled a clip of himself donating $100 to 15-year-old Fortnite streamer Joseph ‘JTReview,’ resulting in an emotional reaction from the youngster during a live broadcast.

Atwood’s initiative has since garnered praise across the internet, with commenters plugging their favorite small-time streamers in the hopes that they will benefit from his charitable project.

The Smile More shirts are available on Atwood’s website in adult and youth sizes, priced at $24.99 each.

Roman Atwood isn’t the only major YouTuber to shout out small streamers on the grind, either; Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is also known for his jaw-dropping acts of charity, and has donated mass amounts of cash to Twitch streamers in multiple videos.

In fact, MrBeast made so many donation videos that he claimed to be tired of them; however, the YouTuber soon returned to the practice shortly thereafter, although he continues to branch out with other forms of content (like his $200,000 Apex Legends battle royale challenge).
