YouTuber’s have become world wide stars that can transform and captivate millions. One Vlogger in particular who wields this power is Casey Neistat. When you have the ability to speak to millions of people, there comes a great responsibility.
Casey has used this influence in positive ways that has effected people’s lives for the better. In particular there are 3 examples that stand out when it comes to Casey’s generosity and selflessness.
Disaster relief in Philippines
This was in the early days before the daily Vlogs. Casey got approached by a movie studio to make a video about chasing your dreams for promotion of a new movie. There could have been a 1000 other ways Casey could have made this video. But instead Casey saw this as a opportunity to help others that were in a horrible situation.
Broke GoFundMe record within hours
We all know that Marlan is YouTubes favourite delivery man. It became a highlight to see Marlan in the daily Vlogs with his contagious positive vibes. Unfortunately Marlan’s sister was facing some serious health issues which he was helping to fund. However Marlans’ contributions were overshadowed by the massive hospital fees.
Marlan was a guest on the Vlog in which he outreached to Casey’s audience with a GoFundMe campaign. What happened next was recording breaking. Within minutes of uploading , the campaign had reached $10,000. By the end of the day the campaign reached it goal of $125,000.
This goes to show the massive support and generosity of Casey and his audience.
Being a positive person to the masses
While this is not one individual act, its more of a accumulation of positivity throughout his videos. Being positive isn’t compulsory and being negative can effect those around you. Thankfully Casey is positive and motiving in nearly all of his videos.
We all know that positivity rubs off on other people. So by watching Casey’s motivational and energetic videos, it doesn’t take long un till you want to go create and spread the positivity. Casey has inspired hundreds (myself included) to go out and create something that will inspire.
