The beginning of the campaign:
It all started on 3 December 2020. He uploaded a video to start a charity project that would cover the costs of treating 1000 people with cataracts and can’t see as a celebration of reaching 10 million subscribers. He streamed for 3 hours, which resulted in the treatment of 1500 people.
Then, on 28 October 2021, he uploaded another video celebrating the 20 million subscribers through collaborating with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. He conducted a live stream fundraising event that continued to 28 hours to raise 1 million dollars to cover the expenses of around 5715 families for the whole duration from November to January.
And guess what? He started another charity project after just two months! Again, he was selected by the UAE to be part of “the most beautiful winter” fundraise. But, this time, the challenge was bigger.
He lived in a glass box near Burj Khalifa in Dubai to raise 10 million dollars to support 10000 families from the refugees across the region.
The live stream continued for 12 days!
And by that, he managed to break the world records for the longest live-stream and most viewers for a charity donation live stream on youtube.
