1,000,000 subscribers.. no celebration


I know this is old news, guys, but… …I’m gonna say it anyways: we hit a million subscribers! Go get away, guys! Go get away! I want to talk to my friends right here. Let me visit the bathroom
for a moment, first. There, that’s a little bit better. I got the stuff on my mouth, so I’m not
sure that was a good idea. Anyways, guys, we did it! I can’t say thank you, because that
doesn’t even come close to how much I appreciate this. I’m like literally speechless right now. Thank you so much. And I kind of feel embarrassed
that I haven’t made this video earlier, I mean, we hit a million about
a week or two ago, so, I didn’t say much. And that was mostly because I didn’t
know what to do or what to say, because I just wasn’t ready yet. For the past weeks we’ve actually been
working very hard for this particular video So, please stay until the
very end because there are some shocking things
that I want to talk about. With every milestone so far
we’ve always done a giveaway. When we hit 100,000 we lifted off
a bunch of balloons and gave away over $3,000
worth in prizes. At 500k we again gave away
tons of prizes as well, including an ultra wide monitor from LG. I was again contacting sponsors
for a giveaway. A 1 million celebration giveaway contest. I thought plans to fill up the entire
studio with plastic balls. 1 million plastic balls! Within that ball pit we would have
random phrases from our sponsors, who would draw names and
dig up the price for that person. That would have been a huge celebration. But I decided not to. I thought, no celebration this time. Wednesday the 5th of December
I came across a message on Facebook. A longtime subscriber, Jay Malone,
who I’ve been following as well, he got diagnosed with cancer,
a tumor in his right kidney. I was driving to Brussels to pick up
the RED camera when I read it. The entire two-hour drive
I was thinking about Jay, and I’m gonna talk about what
played in my head for those two hours, but eventually it comes down to throwing
the entire giveaway idea overboard and doing something completely different. Now, I have a good life. Most of you guys watching right now
probably also have a good life and I strongly believe that
the reason why we have a good life is because we have education. We’ve been to school, we can watch
YouTube videos learn something new and gain life opportunities. Without education, whether that is school,
workshops, online videos, it doesn’t matter, without education
we don’t stand where we are today. We’d probably be working in factories
from the age of 12 until we die. Yes, that is how crazy my mind
was rolling in the car. I just felt so stupid to waste
money for a ball pit, to celebrate 1 million subscribers
with sponsors and giveaway gear that eventually goes to one person. As much as it touches my heart to see how happy the winners
were from previous giveaways, it still feels like a stupid lottery. And it hurts me at the same time. I want to give every one of you
a camera, but I just can’t. So, we did something different this time. There are two things where
this video goes to, so, definitely stay until
the very ends, guys, because there’s a very nice
surprise for all of you. But let’s start with the first thing:
education. Last Wednesday I met a woman, Inge. She’s a teacher in a local
school in Belgium. But in 2015 she lost her heart
to a small school in Sri Lanka. It was a pretty big mess over there, and that was because of the tsunami
that hit the islands a couple years back. But here is a slide that they
have in the playground. I would not let any child play on that. But because of Inge and
donations that she received, they were able to restore that slide. And here’s one of those buildings there. In Sri Lanka it can rain pretty hard, so Inge made sure it got a new roof. There were barely any props for the
children but because of the help they got those children can play
with modern games, their education level has
risen tremendously. They are teaching English classes
within that school for both the children and their parents. For the past years Inge and her
friends have been working very hard to restore that school
with her own hands or by paying local businesses
to help her out. Every penny that she receives goes directly
to the school and the children. They don’t need luxury, they just
need a well infrastructure, enough lecture materials, basic
modern technology and a certain level of education given. A simple thing that we all have, but it could mean a huge difference
in the future of those children. This right here is Thenul, he has a cleft
palate, which is a disorder in his mouth. The school where he was going to
rejected to him because of that. Both of his parents live in extreme
poverty and struggled to find work. The school that Inge and
her friends was working for took Thenul in and because of donations
he was able to undergo several surgeries to make him function
like the other children. Thenul is getting better education
as he deserves right now. He has a future, and his father
is currently working in that school being paid with the money from donations. And just like so many other children whose
parents lack the money to buy food, let alone for school, are now
going to school. More and more children in and around
the small village Madiha in Sri Lanka are finally able to get proper education
and personal support because of Inge and everyone else involved. the school already got a nice
upgrade, but it is far from perfect and there are way too many children
that need the help for a better future. Inge can expand the infrastructure,
hire more teachers, give the children experience with modern technology,
but she needs help with that. And this is the first time that
I’ve done this in my life but I’ve never felt so good about
anything else before. I want to help that small
organization in Sri Lanka, I wanna help Inge and support the years
of work that she has put into that school. I want to give a future to those children. And I want to ask you guys to celebrate
our 1 million subscriber milestone by helping out too. Because together we can make a huge difference
in the small village Madiha. If you click the very first link
in the description below you will find a GoFundMe page. If we can raise $10,000 we can fulfil some
of the biggest wishes that school has. It’s all written down in that page, so I’m not gonna dive too deep
into those details anymore, as I’m trying to keep this video short. Anyways, I am not pushing anyone
to donate money because I’m very aware that not everyone can
do that or has access to a credit card, but you don’t need to donate to help out. I think it’s very important to just
spread the message right now, share the funding page and, believe me,
you have already done a lot to help out. And there’s one thing I want
to promise you guys. If we reach more than €10,000
within that campaign, I am buying myself a ticket to Sri Lanka
and I’m gonna film the happy faces of those children and
their parents myself. I’m gonna film how every
single penny of that donation is going to be used within that school. That is my promise and
my summer vacation! I really hope that you guys
also appreciate that I do this, instead of a giveaway. For me this just feels like
the right thing to do. It’s still a giveaway but a little bit different. and Jay, I know that you’re
watching right now, I want to thank you. I want to thank you for sharing
that message on Facebook. I know it’s terrible news and I’m sure
you’re gonna fight through this, man, but I want you to know that your
negative news positively inspired me. And to all the other 1 million
people out there, Thank you, thank you so much
for the future that you’ve given me and I really hope that together we can give
a bright future to a whole lot more people that could really use it. Now, before I’m ending the video
I said there’s a second thing that I want to share. Let’s be honest here, guys, 1 million subscribers and
no giveaway for you. That is stupid! You know, just check out
the description, guys, there’s a nice little download
button in there which goes to something I call
‘the video creator pack’, a pack filled with video assets,
transitions and a ton of love. Enjoy! -…Cinecom!

  17. I started to do video editing by watching your videos. Because of you l learned most of things about that. I also a Sri Lankan. Thank you so much for supporting us.

  18. I recently found your channel and subscribed. Pretty much binge watched for several days. Man you’ve all come a long way to a well deserved million subs. I have learned a tremendous amount from you. The humility you showed in this video by focusing your attention on others in need, and not your accomplishments, should put you on the fast track to 2 million subs in no time! I firmly believe humility such as this is the answer to all the worlds problems!!! Great work guys, and you have a new groupy!!!

  19. Grt video Jordy it is a biggest thing that makes me to take decision for donations and as high school student I would try donate as much as I can

  20. I've been a long time follower of your YouTube channel and learned a lot from you guys. But this is by far one of my favorite videos.

    Great job.

  21. Really after 1 year only 4.664€?
    Come on guys this is a great idea and they don't earn money from your donation..they give us tips tutorial title transition and ideas all for free.. think about this and donate!
    Thanks again Cinecom!
