Well, hello everyone! My name is Tyler Oakley, and today is a very special day. Okay, I don’t know if you know this, but my birthday is coming up. If you didn’t know that, how dare you? But also, it’s okay, because just sit here, relax, chill. I have a big thing that I want to say. For my birthday last year, we tried to raise $150,000 for the Trevor Project. They are a suicide and crisis prevention hotline. If you need to call somebody and talk to somebody, you can call them. They are an amazing organization that I use to be an intern with. Now I do the red carpet galas for them. I host their red carpets. Last year, we tried to raise $150,000. You guys were like, “Okay…” and raised half a million dollars. And I was like, “Wow, a lot of people “want to help save lives.” And I thought, okay, why not use this incredible platform that I am really fortunate to have to try to save more lives this year, because if I can use my birthday to help other people experience more of their birthdays, I feel like that’s a good thing.
So, this year, I want to reach the same amount we ended up raising last year, which was half a million dollars. And you may think, “Holy crap, “that’s a lot of money, Tyler. “I don’t have half a million dollars.” That’s okay. The main success of last year’s campaign was because so many of you guys came out, and you just gave what you could. And we did a whole bunch of livestreams where I was like, “Okay, you guys, we’re all going to donate in a minute, “and we’re going to see the impact “of everyone coming together.” And there were some minutes when all of us coming together to donate in that one minute was like $8,000 or $10,000, and I was like, see, the power of giving just what you can, as a community, can change the world. And so my challenge to you is to give what you can. If it’s $10, that’s incredible!
If all of my subscribers gave $10, I mean, we would hit half a million like that. And I want to use the same platform that I used last year, prizeo.com, because they let me give back to you guys for donating. So, there’s a whole bunch of different rewards you can get for different levels of donation, whether it’s a poster or a t-shirt, or a Skype call with me, or a video dedicated to you, or a spot in an upcoming Q&A where you can ask me anything.
You can go to prizeo.com/tyler to see all of the rewards.
But I would get them before they’re gone, because they all sold out very quickly. And even if you can’t afford the biggest rewards, I’m saving the biggest reward for everybody. For every $5 you donate to the campaign, you get one raffle ticket for the grand prize. So, if you donate $5, you get one raffle ticket. If you donate $50, you get 10 raffle tickets. For every $5, you get another raffle ticket. Does that make sense?
And then all of those raffle tickets go into a bowl, virtually, and I am going to be picking one lucky person who donated to win the grand prize. And you may be thinking, “What is the grand prize?”
Well, y’all, the grand prize this year is a trip to LA for you and a friend. And it’s not just any trip to LA. It’s a trip to Los Angeles for VidCon 2015. You may be thinking, “How am I gonna go to VidCon? “I don’t have the money for a flight or the hotel “or blah, blah, blah, or blah, blah, blah.” Girl, I got the hookup for you! Okay? I’m going to fly you and a friend to Los Angeles. I’m going to put you up in a hotel. I’m going to get you into VidCon. And I’m going to take you backstage. And you never know who you’re going to meet when you’re going backstage with me, because Lorde knows, I know everybody. And then on top of all that, you should also know that you’re literally saving lives by donating. I mean it’s like a win-win-win-win-win situation. I think together, we can easily raise $500,000. Whether you’ve been subscribed for years, whether you just now have found me, whether you’re a dad or a mom or an organization that needs a tax deduction, anybody can donate, and I hope that you guys get involved. Last year, Taco Bell donated $25,000. I’d love to see what organizations want to join the campaign and help us reach our goal.
I’m really excited this year. I think we can smash through half a million. But it’s not gonna happen if you don’t get involved. And you may be like, “Listen, I don’t got 10 bucks.” Maybe ask your mom, or maybe ask your dad, and open up the conversation of why the Trevor Project is important. Also, if you want to help me out, be sure to give this video a thumbs up, and put it on your Facebook wall, put it on your Tumblr, put it on your Twitter, put it everywhere.
Go to prizeo.com/tyler.
Check and see how far along we are toward our goal. If we’re, like, still so far away, your 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 dollars will help so much. If we are getting really close to it, your 10, 20, 30, 40 dollars is gonna push us over the edge. Go donate.
I love you so much for getting involved. And maybe you might win the trip to VidCon, hopefully. Who knows?
Thank you so much, I love you, and this is the best birthday gift I could ever ask for, so thank you for getting involved. I love you so much. (muah…) You are the best. You’re the best, that’s all. I mean, honestly, you’re the best. Okay, bye y’all!
