Shortly after this, he tweeted: “Just a reminder for those of you who don’t normally watch this channel, Beast Philanthropy is a charity we run and all proceeds from these videos go towards running our food pantries and helping people around the world.

Record good deeds, inspire millions of children to do good, use proceeds from good deeds to do the next good deed.”
