Is Twitter “Philanthropy” A Scam? (deep dive into free money giveaways)


– Hello, my dudes. My name is Tiffany. Welcome back to my
series, Internet Analysis, where I like to research
and discuss things relevant to social issues and media. Today we are covering
Twitter philanthropy, AKA giving away money on Twitter. First of all though, I want
to say thank you, guys, so much for 400,000 subscribers. – Also, I wanna remind
you it is finals season. I am ending my junior year of university. But I’m busy, and I’ll probably
have some late uploads. But I’m here now; that’s all that matters. Also late happy Thanksgiving,
happy holidays, you know. This time of year is just all about giving and buying and money. And those are all very
relevant to today’s topic. Let’s jump in. The other day I came across a tweet. “I’m going to give away
$30,000 to one random person “who retweets this tweet and
follows Twitter Philanthropist “@Pulte and me. “If you don’t follow us, “we can’t DM you the money. “Will show proof.” “Partnering with him
just makes sense because “he also likes helping people.” And I was shook, because a few people that I follow on twitter retweeted this, hence why it came across my timeline. And I was just like, really guys? But I get that this was literally free. It cost nothing to enter. It takes a minute of your time. But it’s just not worth it for me. This very tweet caused me
to spiral into an obsessive research hole, as every
internet analysis video does. I had so many questions. Where does this money come from? Is anyone actually gonna
receive this money? Is it legit? Why? But really my first question was, aren’t give aways just
a way to buy followers? Nothing engages people
more than the opportunity to win something. As both MrBeast and Pulte said, “you must be following
so I can message you.” Ah, yes, this is not a
ploy to buy followers. It’s just practical. But I know, this is typical
of any social media giveaway. You must be a subscriber. You must be a follower. I get that if you’re a creator
and you wanna give back to your audience, it
makes sense that obviously you’d want someone who
is a subscriber to win. But of course, giveaways do
attract new followers as well. So in this situation,
I wanted to calculate the cost per new follower, you know? These guys are throwing down money. What are they gaining from it, exactly? If you saw my credit
card debt payoff video, you may have noticed that I fucked up a simple division problem. What can I say, other than
I haven’t had a math class in years, and yes, I have forgotten how to do basic calculations. What? So please trust me now to
probably get this wrong, possibly. Okay, so two guys giving away $30,000, I’m going to assume that
they’re each pitching in 15,000. How many followers did each of them gain? The tweet got over 700,000
retweets, but I know that those aren’t all new
followers for MrBeast. So I went to Social Blade to try to see how many followers each
of them gained on that day and the day after. This was a big time for Pulte. He gained probably 600,000 followers, and this made him pass a million. MrBeast gained about 300,000. But he had already had
about 4 million before. So what was the cost per follower? 15,000 divided by 600,000
is about two cents per follower for Pulte. 15,000 divided by 300,000
is about five cents per follower for MrBeast. So if your goal is
basically to buy followers, why not literally just buy followers? It would only cost a few
thousand dollars to buy half a million Twitter followers. Some people just want the
appearance, the illusion of a higher follower account. So they wouldn’t care
whether those accounts are real or fake as long as they look like they have followers. But real, engaged followers
are obviously worth much more than fake followers. So that is why giveaways
are a great way to attract new followers that are real people. Whether it’s on YouTube,
Instagram, Twitter, whatever platform, the value
of new followers is most likely greater than the value of
whatever is being given away. So giveaways can be a
clever way to make a creator look really generous when
really they are benefiting, too. But then again, entering
a giveaway costs nothing but a moment of your time. So I guess it’s a win-win? Anyway, we’re gonna get
much deeper into this, but clearly I am starting
off on a skeptical and pessimistic foot. And some people watching
this may be thinking, “how dare you question
Twitter philanthropy? “These people are doing charity. “They are giving away their
own hard-earned money. “You’re doing nothing, you broke idiot.” And to that I say, true. But the truth is I like
to be critical, okay? It is the basis of this entire series. I think it is rather boring to
look at something as simple, uncomplicated, 100% good or bad. I like nuance, baby. One person one twitter
once said that my videos are deep dives into shallow topics. And honestly, I live for that. So I am going to continue
to being hypercritical and picking little things
apart, for the fun. Okay, let’s start with MrBeast. I had only been familiar
with MrBeast by name because of hashtag TeamTrees. But I had never seen his videos. And honestly, (laughs) when
I looked at his channel for the first time, it overwhelmed me. I’m someone who is,
like, personally offended by extreme waste or unnecessary spending. So I was triggered. MrBeast’s whole channel
is built on gimmicks. Like, in the beginning he
went viral for doing videos like “Microwaving a Microwave
Microwaving a Toaster.” He also had a nearly
24-hour-long upload of him just counting to 100,000. He’s clearly willing to do
any ridiculous, wild thing to get attention. But hey, he does put in the time. So then once he started to
get like millions of views on every upload, he started
a new genre on his channel: giving away money to strangers. And I’m being 100% genuine when I say it is nice that he does this. It is nice that he gives
money away to people. I’m sure that some of those people who have received that money
have really, really needed it. So that’s nice. Again, it’s gimmicky, but okay. – I’m a YouTuber. I’m going around giving random people who need a thousand dollars, so. – However, in general
I am really not a fan of people making videos of
their charity, their good acts. – Most people get mad
and say this is a bad way to get views. Tell them that you’re okay with this. – Are you okay with it?
– Oh, yeah. – Hell yeah. – (laughs) That’s right, YouTube. – Best day of my life, right here. – Homeless people don’t care if I use them for views. (laughs) – It is so cringey to me, and it do think it is exploitative. I find it so uncomfortable that
they’re putting these people on camera as homeless man. The thing is, though, in his videos it does not seem like he’s
trying to make himself seem like a good person. He admits that he’s doing
it, at least partially, just for the views. But anyway, yeah, in the
last two years basically MrBeast has been following a pattern. He gives away a bunch of money. That video goes viral,
earning him more money. And then he gives away more money. What a winning formula. I mean, clearly it has
been very, very successful. In this video, for example,
he gave his mom $100,000. – So I wanted to give you a
check to help you pay for it. – No. – Yeah. (laughing) – This is good YouTube. Yes, we need a thumbnail. (man laughing) – No, I can’t, I can’t take it. I swear I cannot take it. – Well, you’re going to take it. But if I don’t give it to you,
I don’t have a viral video. – So you’re using me for views? – Yes, but you get money
too, so we’re both happy. – So you use me for views, and
I get to pay off my mortgage? – Mm hm, I think it works out pretty well. – Jimmy, aka MrBeast,
says that he just sees it as reinvesting the money
he earns on his channel back into his videos. Plus the sponsors do
cover part of the cost for these giveaways. – So thank you, Quid, for helping me. Obviously they didn’t
provide all $100,000. But thank you for what portion
of this you did provide. – Thank you. Everybody, please download Quid. – So there are a lot of
videos on this website that I would consider to
be money spending content. And I am fascinated by it. I have a lot to say about it. So I am going to talk more about MrBeast and other creators who are
throwing cash in a next video. So stay tuned. As always, that’s a
topic for another video. Anyway though, from what
I’ve seen, the people who do get money or win money from MrBeast do actually receive it. So at least it’s legit. For example, this was the
winner of that $30,000 tweet. – So, oh my goodness. I found out I won, and I basically went, what? – So let’s go back to Twitter now. MrBeast’s bio is “Human ATM.” Love that. He knows his brand. Most of his tweets are
just promoting his videos. Sometimes he’ll retweet
or share other giveaways. But now we’ve gotta focus on Bill Pulte, the self-proclaimed philanthropist and inventor of Twitter Philanthropy. On his Instagram, it’s “Philanthropist and “Inventor of Instagram Philanthropy,” though I am not convinced
that he is the first person to have ever given money away
on either of those platforms. Bill Pulte went kind of viral this summer. “Meet the 31-year-old
Twitter philanthropist “giving away money to strangers online.” For example, a woman who
had recently been released from prison, she was trying
to get back on her feet. She had been entering
these Twitter lotteries, and she ended up winning
$10,000 from Pulte. He summarizes his mission as basically using social media for good. So his tweets are all basically giveaways, teasing upcoming
giveaways, or talking about how good it feels to give away money. “If Donald Trump retweets
this, I will give $30,000 “to a veteran on Twitter.” That’s nice. But what if the president doesn’t play into your Twitter game? No $30,000 to a vet in need? Thankfully, Trump is always on
Twitter, and he did retweet. “Thank you, Bill.” And honestly, this is classic Pulte. He is so selfless. This is not himself or his image. Getting public acknowledgement
from the president on Twitter was just a benefit of this. And also a requirement for the charity. I just realized he’s actually
done this multiple times. He also asked Kim Kardashian,
Ben Shapiro, and AOC. According to these
tweets, a retweet from AOC is worth $20,000, and Ben
Shapiro is only worth 5,000. Let’s read more of his tweets. “I have a draft tweet in my Twitter “for a $50,000 give away.” Tweet it, then. I found it hilarious that this
tweet has 30,000 retweets. Like, why did anyone retweet that? This is not a giveaway. (laughs) Maybe people just retweet
as fast as they can anytime they see a dollar sign. He also shared this gem. “Star, my wife: what did you do today? “Star, me: raised money
for a boy with autism “and gave away money. “Star, my wife: that’s amazing.” My dude’s trying to get
into the Twitter format. He’s not getting it yet, but he’s trying. He’s also been sharing some dank memes. “Nobody. Me.” I think this is the only
time I haven’t enjoyed a SpongeBob reference. Anyway though, the basis of
Bill’s Twitter Philanthropy is giving away money to the
people who are most in need. And that’s why he does
entirely random giveaways based on retweets, gives
away essentials like Teslas and even the Tesla truck. Bill sometimes shares these
fundraisers with people who need money for medical
reasons, or they’re vets and they’re struggling,
any number of things, you know, legitimate needs. But then he’s doing his $25,000
random Twitter giveaways. And I’m just like, why
don’t you use that money and give it to the people
who you say need it the most? My theory is that the
random Twitter giveaways help build up the hype, you know, build up the follower count. And then the campaigns that
actually help people in need, specifically, are you know, good for attracting positive press. So I started to read the
responses to Pulte’s tweets. And it’s honestly really, really sad. It’s basically a lot
of desperate people who are begging for help on Twitter. And of course we don’t
know whether their stories are legitimate or not. But I am sure that a lot of
them are genuinely struggling and could use even a hundred dollars to help them get through
the day or the week. But I found it funny,
’cause like he’ll tweet some of his cheesy shit, and then people will reply
and say something like, “Happy Thanksgiving, Bill. “Thank you so much for
the work that you do.” And then they’ll end their response with their Cash App username. Can you imagine if every time you posted something online and
people interacted with you, they ended it with, money, please? Another interesting thing
I discovered is that many of these people are
basically professional, full-time Twitter giveaway enterers. Their entire timelines are giveaways. And I get that really
Twitter is pointless, so I guess, yeah, why not shoot your shot, try to win some random coin or
get somebody to Cash App you? But this is one of my big points, okay? And this is where I’m
gonna get really salty, really mad, okay? There are some people who
are really, really opposed to welfare or having big
government, you know? But those people are in favor of charity. And of course charity is good. But I would prefer that
we have a more generous social safety net so
that people don’t have to rely on random kindness of strangers and retweeting giveaways on Twitter in hopes that they will survive a hardship or an emergency or chronic poverty. Charity is good, but that shouldn’t be the only thing that we rely on. Clearly, charity is not enough to address all of these issues, because so many people are hurting, so many people need
help, and only one person is gonna win that $30,000
or that fucking Tesla truck, which is so useless. The truck, the money is great. These are the same type of people who say, “this is not a hand out.” They demonize handouts. “This is a hand up.” I just hate that. It grinds my gears. It makes me so angry when
people demonize welfare. They think that it’s so
disgraceful, embarrassing to apply for welfare or food stamps. Yet some of these very same
people are spending all day begging for money on Twitter. For the record, nobody should be ashamed for either of these things. If you need help, ask for it. But is begging for charity
on Twitter more efficient or effective than welfare
or free healthcare or better social security payments for people who are disabled or elderly? No, not at all. Another thing that gets me
heated is when we are fed these feel-good stories,
such as six year old boy with lemonade stand raises $10,000 for his dad’s cancer treatments. Wow, that is amazing. That is heartwarming. But actually, no, this is a tragedy. The fact that a child
has to try to raise money in hopes that he can cover his
dad’s life-saving treatment, that is a tragedy. That’s a symptom that our
system is not working. We shouldn’t have to rely on GoFundMe or the random generosity of
strangers to survive cancer. We need Medicare for all, y’all. Okay, (laughs) I’m done being heated for a moment, all right? There’s more later, but we’ll see. Anyway, back to Pulte. Where is all this money coming from? Who is this mysterious
guy giving away cash? First of all, Pulte comes
from a family that is worth, I don’t know how much his
family is worth exactly, but his grandfather was a billionaire. And the family business is
worth billions, as well. So that helps. But he’s not giving away his inheritance. This is money that he earned. He runs an investment
firm called Pulte Capital. Yes, he was born into a
family of billionaires. But he is self-made, okay? “Pulte Capital’s
acquisitions will be funded “in large part by money
from the Pulte family.” We love a humble success story. By the way, I just saw
“Knives Out” this weekend. Great movie, you should watch it. But that reminds me of that
because it’s like ha ha, I’m self-made, but I used a
loan from my very wealthy family to get started, so am I really self made? Good question. Am I salty that I didn’t get born into a family of billionaires? Maybe. Either way, he is a dude
with a lot of money. And he’s giving it away. Except it’s not just his money. He’s actually crowdfunding for donations. All over his Twitter, he encourages people to become part of hashtag Team Pulte. He collects donations
from people on his team, because he says that more people can do more good than just him. Okay, one example figure
said that he had given away over $100,000 of his own
money and over $200,000 of crowdfunded money. So I haven’t been able to
find any newer stats on this. But I kind of assume that
the ratio is similar. So again, a big part of
his mission is to make social media a better place
and encourage other people to donate and get involved
and be charitable, be a philanthropist. But if you’re gonna
encourage people to donate, why not just encourage people to donate directly to GoFundMes or directly to charities? I just don’t understand why you’d be like, “hey, everybody, let’s donate
to me and my organization, “and then I will decide
where this money goes.” Just like, what’s the point? Teamwork? Seems to me like people
give him the money, and he gets all the credit
and lots of good press. On that note, let’s
talk a little bit about corporate philanthropy. You know when you see a
massive corporation be like, “we donated a hundred million
dollars to this cause.” Of course, again, charity is cool. Thanks for that. But what about maybe taking
care of your employees all year round instead of
exploiting your workers with low wages and bad working conditions. What about, like, paying
them a living wage? You might not be able to
donate as much, but like, you’ll support the people
who support your company. I don’t know, I’m all about
labor rights, you know? Just a little quirk of mine. Again though, we wouldn’t
need so much random charity if we had more stable institutions,
if we had better wages, free healthcare, affordable housing, if we actually provided
veterans with the benefits that they have been promised. That’s what I’m in favor of. It’s funny because Pulte himself
had a tweet something like, he wants to make sure
every man, woman, and child has food and a place to sleep. And I was like, hell yeah! Let’s work on that safety net, then. I don’t think there are any
charities that can possibly provide that to every
man, woman, and child, but I think that on an
institutional, national level we might be able to work on that. Just saying. I’m smiling way to much in
this video, it’s creepy. Anyway, back to Team Pulte. Okay, Bill, you have convinced me. I wanna join the team. I wanna donate. Where do I sign up? It’s not very clear from his Twitter. There is no link in
bio, there’s no website. Sometimes his tweets point
to the sweepstakes rules that are at Pulte.org/r. But that website doesn’t have any other information other than that. What is this actual organization? How can I donate? How can I learn more? It’s actually kind of
hard to find the website. It’s called Team Pulte,
so I tried Team Pulte. And that’s not it. It’s actually at BillPulte.org. And the website is really
lacking information, you know? I would expect to maybe
see some stories of people that Team Pulte has helped. How much money has been raised? How much is given to each cause? That’s why I like how GoFundMe
campaigns are organized, because the page gives
you the whole story. It gives you the who,
what, where, when, why. You can see exactly how
much money has been raised, whether they’re below or
above the targeted amount. That’s good information to
know when you’re choosing what to donate to. So let’s walk through the
navigation of this website and see what we can learn. All it takes to join the team is follow Pulte on Twitter. Okay. Do you need to apply for a grant? You just fill out this
type form with your name and your email and why
you deserve the grant. Okay, seems like I just
signed up for a mailing list. Pulte also works with teachers. So if you wanna apply for the
teachers grant, same thing. Just fill out that form, hope
that they maybe contact you. Pulte’s veterans, of course,
we like to support the vets. Learn more links back to Pulte’s Twitter. This team is making major headlines. Read the news links to Bill
Pulte Google search. (laughs) I just, I’m like, okay, first of all, this web design is terrible. You’re not giving any information. People don’t wanna do their own research. You’re supposed to put it on the website, not just link to Google. But still, I’m trying to join the team. I’m trying to donate. How can I donate? Why is this so difficult? On Team Pulte slash BillPulte.org, there is no place to donate. However, on Bill’s Twitter
and on the Team Pulte Twitter, they often share campaigns from a group called Team Giving. So if you go to the Team Giving website, it says that it is inspired by Pulte but doesn’t directly say if
he is associated with it. And they share their whole
board of directors and all that. And Pulte’s not on it. So I found that interesting. But that website does very
clearly collect donations. And again, the Team Pulte
Twitter and Bill’s Twitter share those campaigns. So it seems like it’s
associated very directly. But again, who knows? It’s not clear. Bill, if you’re trying to
make this movement bigger than you, if you’re trying
to collect the maximum amount of donations to
fund these campaigns, make it easier. Fix your web design. Why is this is so confusing? So it appears that Team
Giving actually funds these campaigns using the
crowdfunded donations. But who is funding those
random Twitter giveaways? I would assume that
that is Bill, you know, coming from his own millionaire fortune. Self-made, baby. But this is where the
Cash App theory comes in. This is something very interesting that I have learned
about, I wasn’t aware of. So Cash App, I guess, is owned by Square, which is owned by
Twitter’s CEO, Jack Dorsey. Cash App has apparently
given money to celebrities like Lil B for them to give
away to their Twitter followers to get people to download the Cash App. So now my question is, because
Bill always uses Cash App to give money away, and
that’s kind of interesting. Like, I don’t know if it’s
even the most popular cash app. There’s Venmo; there’s PayPal. You could just send checks, I guess. Why is he using the Cash App? Maybe Cash App is giving
Bill money to give away. If so, I feel like that
needs to be disclosed. It’s not necessarily like
a sponsorship or an ad, but I feel like that
relationship needs to be noted. Actually just found a tweet from Bill. “Why have we used Square’s
Cash App or PayPal?” I guess he does use PayPal occasionally. Okay. “Why not checks? “Easy! “No, that’s the answer. “They’re easily accessible
to Americans already online. “I’m not an investor in either. “Not everyone has a bank account, “and when I give away my money, “I want everyone on
Twitter to have a shot.” That’s another thing about this entire Twitter philanthropy thing, is you have to note the
privilege of having access to the internet. Like, yes, in theory you
could use a library computer, blah, blah, blah. But that’s obviously not
the easiest thing to do if you’re in a situation
where you’re struggling, you’re in poverty, you’re in need. So it’s kind of interesting
that this automatically can’t necessarily reach
the people who really are in the most need,
because they’re probably not sitting on Twitter all
day, able to retweet all of these things and keep
up with these giveaways and download the Cash App. Like, you’d need a
smartphone for that, right? Come on. Bill should be following MrBeast’s lead. He might as well go give cash
out to people on the street. Ooh, I’m getting heated. Also, yesterday, as I
was writing this video, it was Black Friday. And Cash App was running a
Black Friday sweepstakes. They were giving away money. It’s very interesting. I mean, I get why people
would participate in this. If Cash App or any other
celebrity or fricking Bill are gonna be giving away
money, why not play? Why not join the sweepstakes? To end this video, there
is now a whole league of Twitter philanthropists, claiming that they have money to
give away to random people. There are lots of copycats, and some people even
claim to be Bill himself. So you drop your Cash App username, somebody Cash Apps you requesting $20, saying they’re Bill. If you send me $20, I’ll give you your $500 that you won. Clearly a scam, but
some people fall for it. Not everyone is familiar with these scams that some of us see as very recognizable. If someone ever says
that you need to pay them or buy something in
order to win something, that’s not legitimate, don’t do it. Don’t send them any money. Don’t do anything. It’s a scam. This is also why you
probably shouldn’t blast your Cash App or your
PayPal all over Twitter. At least figures like Pulte
and MrBeast seem legitimate. But maybe that’s just the
blue check marks talking. So that’s it. What do you guys think
about Twitter philanthropy? Please let me know. If I was a little too harsh
in this video, I apologize. But also not really. I mean, it’s just my thoughts, my opinion, my perspective. Let’s all share what we think. Is Twitter philanthropy just a way to exploit people in poverty? Is it just a way to make yourself look really good and giving? I don’t know, but I encourage you guys to register to vote. Smokey Glow here on YouTube
always ends her videos telling people to register,
and I think that’s great. So if you want to make these changes, institutional changes to
help alleviate poverty and provide affordable housing for people and healthcare for all, make sure that you register to vote and participate in all elections, because those things are really gonna make a difference for a lot of people’s lives. And that way people can stop
relying on Twitter lotteries. So you guys can follow me on Instagram for some mediocre pics. You can follow me on Twitter. I have a draft tweet in my Twitter for a $50,000 giveaway, so. I also have a vlog channel, where I post other types of videos. I also have a podcast
called Previously Gifted. You can watch it on YouTube,
or you can listen to it on any podcast app or Spotify. Extra content, my voice
hurts, I’m done talking. Ow. I’m crying. Good to end the video
with tears in your eyes. It was just an emotional one, okay? All right, that’s all. ‘Kay, thanks, bye. (quirky mellow music)

    I love your videos. I may not agree 100% on everything, but even the stuff I don't agree on I have to really wrestle with since you bring up some great points. I love these types of videos but I also hate them because I listen to them in the background of work, but then I get too distracted 😅.

    ok so i enjoy the video and the research you put into it. but i disagree sooooo much about welfare, free healthcare, free college, free everything that the government aka taxes pay for. Taxes are involuntary and unfair, and charity is from people's hearts because they actually want to help. charity is an incredible force for good. of course some taxes are necessary for having police and schools and fire departments and roads, but the amount of taxes that people have to pay is gross. the government is also horribly inefficient and wasteful with their money unlike companies because the government just takes money whereas companies have to earn it (so companies spend it frugally). most people who make a lot of money and are taxed an insane amount earned it. for example, pharmacists, doctors, engineers, professors, ceos, business owners, etc. They sacrificed years of income by going to school, probably took out lots of loans to either start their business or go to school, spent years studying or building up their business from the ground up. and all that just to have the government steal half (or MORE) of everything you ever make! and i'm not saying that lower wage workers don't work hard because they ABSOLUTELY do, but they did not forego years of income, take out loans, or risk everything they have to start a new business, or have a genius idea, etc and therefore it makes sense that they are not paid as much. but these low wage workers often don't pay ANY taxes at all! meanwhile, people who sacrificed for what they have are forced to give half their money to the irresponsible government which will probably mismanage it anyways. It's insane how much the government gets away with and its insane to me that people think that government welfare and charity are even close to the same thing. if/when i find myself in a place where I am in need, i will not steal from the hard working people of this country by taking their taxes. i would much rather rely on the kind people in my church or people who choose to help me.

    There was a kid who had a special walker/wheelchair that home depot employees mad for him because his insurance didnt want to cover the actual chair.

    I really hate those stories. Because , while it ends well, it gives the bad guys/institutions a pass and an excuse. Someone else/charity will do it for them and they wont lose a dime.

    When people sneer at welfare (aka social safety net) it shows how brainwashed they are by the conservative news media. It doesn't serve us everyday people to have no safety net! Whyyyyy would you be against it!? However it does serve huge corporations who get away with paying zero tax, and the conservative politicians who get put into power to in turn pass policies that benefit the corporations who "donate" to their campaigns. Follow the money!

    Love the internet analysis series, some of these issues might seem shallow, but they are a great jumping off point into deeper societal issues. Keep them coming!

    re: welfare vs charity discussion. i think generally people prefer to be seen as and feel as if they're ""heroes"" for their charity work. they feel as if giving money is more valuable to others and for them. after all, it looks good to been known as the "philanthropist" and it feels good knowing you've donated your hard-earned money to a good cause. but these uber-rich people with large amounts of money to spare dislike welfare services like healthcare, public schooling and public infrastructure maintenance bc they don't get the satisfactory feeling or knowledge that their money directly helped someone as a result of /their actions/ and that they can't parade where they're money is going. and also that all these public services require tax money and these charitable donations not only benefit them, their self esteem and their public image but also their tax write offs. no doubt charity is amazing and the work of charities should never be tainted but so many billionaires utilise charities to benefit their self-esteem, public image and their taxes when their money would just be well off if it went to public services to benefit societies and not just individual people who got lucky with a retweet. idk those are just some thoughts

    I would prefer to give lots of money to a charity and have it really do what I want it to than give the same amount in tax and have it diluted due to all sorts of administrative costs. I’d rather help a few people a lot than a lot of people barely at all. I have enough experience with government institutions to know that my favorite private local charities are run much more efficiently.

    I understand how people should not have to hope and pray that they win a random sweepstake to give $10,000 so that they can survive and that we need to make real changes so that there aren’t people in poverty in the richest country in the world. I get it. But really, does all of this matter. It’s not like Pulte is stealing money. Obviously you’re not going to donate if you can’t afford to. They are giving away money! It costs you nothing and takes 30 seconds. So while the vulnerable wait for the people in power to make changes, why can’t we just let rich people give money to people who need it. Honestly it feels a little pretentious for you not to retweet these things and look down on them so much.

    I know I'm late but honestly the grossest thing to me is how MrBeast gets people to entertain him for the chance to win.. It's like "Oh you can have this £10,000 but only if you win this game of fortnight" Or potentially more gross, when they don't even know they are competing and they just get a pathetic message like "sorry, the other guy won £10,000 because he blinked 10 times but you can have £100 I guess".. I appreciate charity, but when it's like this I genuinely feel icky. Generally the losers are really friendly and "thanks for the opportunity, keep doing good work" but I can't help thinking I would be so so angry if this happened to me…

    Hey Tiffany, just got into your channel and I can definitely say that you're one of the most interesting youtubers I've seen. Not only do I like your takes, but you balance a great line between progressive leftist politics and just internet fun stuff.

    I'm very much into the online left and I'm an An-Com myself, being part of many leftist groups in my local community and one thing I've always said that the left online and offline needs good optics. We need to talk about subjects that are both "non-political" and fun, but can also discuss them from a left, progressive perspective.

    Essentially what I'm saying is, you're a very smart youtuber, your videos are fun and just keep up what you're doing girl, because it's working and I like it!

    Maybe in the future you'd want to chat to some other online leftys and go on their streams I don't know, at least I know I'll watch something like that haha, but obviously it's just my idea haha.

    Keep it up!

    I'm not hating (too much) on welfare, because a lot of people actually rely on these programs and can benefit from them in ways that they could not had they been/remained in a country like Pakistan or Mexico, but the welfare system in America fails to be a very efficient solution to poverty and it comes with so many strings attached that it lowers the overall economic mobility of the individual. Especially because the federal government doesn't control how many states like Georgia and Texas make it harder for people to get assistance from a lot of these programs. A lot of people who are struggling to get their bills paid might not meet the requirements from welfare programs because they "aren't poor enough." Around only 23% of poor families receive economic assistance from the government. That's why I really like the idea of UBI. It seems to be working very well in countries like Canada and Finland, and it gives people the opportunities to go back to school and choose the job they want. All the allegations that it would make people lazy and that people would spend money on drugs have been proven false by multiple studies. People actually start working harder because they have the opportunity; and rather than poor people, rich people are more likely to spend their money on drugs and alcohol. Instead of creating dependency and throwing citizens into a destructive cycle, UBI could help people achieve financial stability and an overall better quality of life. The only remaining problem with UBI right now is where the money is going to come from. Personally I feel like it should come from the richest %1, and here's why: Right now the richest 1% actually pays the least taxes as compared with the "average" billionares/millionares and even the entire middle class. Of course, by now most people have heard of Amazon's tax evasion shenanigans and of federal grants given to tech companies (the reasons to give these companies grants are understandable, as the companies create jobs, however a lot of these companies haven't been doing much to help the people in the way that was expected of as of late).These tech companies not only get taxpayer money from the government, they also make a shit-ton of money off of our data. So if the common people are being exploited and these companies are getting money and not paying their fair share of taxes, why not make up for it by funding the UBI? The richest %1 could pay for everyone in America to go to college, so it wouldn't be beyond their capabilities to pay for UBI.

    I get that you feel that Mr. Beast is cringy – but then again, he does let a lot of money flow from the "rich" to the "poor" (most of the time). Is it ethical? Maybe not entirely. Then again, do the people on the receiving end care? Probably not, cause they can climb out of bad situations they are in. Overall, I'd take 10 Mr Beasts any day in comparison to say an Ace family who just likes to flex their wealth on camera

    Like you, I was skeptical of Mr.Beast, but I actually learned of him from TheOdd1sOut
    (youtube storytime animator.) Likewise, I was also kinda offended of the waste and some of the early videos were super-cringey. However a lot of the later videos are much better. My only criticism is how often money given away ends up benefiting his friends. Of course MrBeast and Bill Pulte are free to spend money anyway they want, ending up in the unenviable position of looking like "Scrooge McDuck", where everyone wants money but can't give money to everyone, because there's no way to vet a claim.

    Gofundme, and similar crowdfunding sites can't vet themselves. So to some extent I see the appeal of Pulte's thing, I give him some money, he finds a good charitable cause, he eats whatever transaction and overhead is involved in theory.

    There was an article done years ago about how much of a scam, most charities actually are. What % of the funding raised actually goes to the charitable cause. Well it turns out that too many donations just end up going to overhead (administration, staff wages, marketing, payment processor fees, etc) , especially when it's a company on behalf of the charity and only pennies end up going to the actual cause. See give.org (BBB rated charities.) If you can't get a tax receipt for it, it's probably a scam, and I doubt you can get a tax receipt from playing along with Pulte unfortunately.

    Where I think Internet, and more to the point Twitter Philanthropy can be improved is by a small change in the DM system. MrBeast may look like he's buying followers this way, which is kind of true, but Twitter doesn't let you DM anyone you're not following. So a way to solve that would be for Twitter to allow a "DM from this tweet permitted until (time or until closed)" , which would also customer service (I get a lot of tweets from customer service departments when I complain about their products either in passing or because I have an actual problem and @ them) to be able to DM a Twitter user without having to follow them first. The other solution would be to simply have a feature added where "I will accept DM's from anyone during (time)"

    A point certainly needs to be made how Charity and Welfare are in fact the same thing, just administrated differently. Government funded Welfare wouldn't cost so much if the jobs paid enough, and certain social safety nets like government housing, unemployment benefits and medical care were covered seamlessly regardless of employment or housing status.

    Charities in the US end up being privatized welfare, where each charity asks for money and donors with money will only hand out money to causes that give them the warm fuzzies in exchange for lowering their tax burden. How often is that homeless adults? Not a priority. Dying children or animals? Here's the money! GoFundMe should not be the US's private welfare system.

    Any other social workers in the house? Tiffany, I'm a new subscriber, and I love your content! You make so many reasonable, intelligent points, and I'm glad you're encouraging conversation about this topic. As a social worker, I often have SO many conflicting thoughts/feelings and unanswered questions revolving around Mr.Beast's videos (his are the only philanthropy-themed ones I've watched, so far). First, let me say that I applaud ANY one who wishes to contribute a part of their wealth and/or time towards helping others. Jimmy Donaldson strikes me as genuine in his desire to do so. It obviously gives him joy, and it can be joyful to watch. Unfortunately, there can be unintended negative physical AND psychological consequences, for both the giver AND the receiver of, in particular, "surprise"-type charity, so my greatest hope is that Jimmy, his team, and the people they help learn about said consequences in order to best avoid them (like, I know I'm biased, here, but, my dudes, get a social worker on your team, lol). For example: Giving $5k to a random homeless person on the street is a wonderful, selfless idea. In reality, however, you may have just put that person in danger. Bad actors would love to get their hands on that cash, and word often spreads fast on the streets. So, if I were the "social worker on board," I'd want to make sure that giftee was able to find safe shelter as soon as possible; I'd want to help with transportation to said shelter, if it wasn't available; I'd want to help them set up a simple bank account in order to keep their money safe, if they didn't have one; I'd respectfully inquire as to whether or not they would rather have something of practical value in place of the cash, such as specific items of clothing, a year-long bus pass, several month's rent paid directly to a landlord or housing facility, etc. Many of the homeless people with whom I've worked struggle with substance abuse issues, and they often tell me that receiving sudden cash – especially in large sums – can quickly trigger a relapse. So, just some thoughts on the whole deal, from a social worker's perspective. 🙂

    Another things about corporate philanthropy is a lot of the time when they say "WE donated $xxx to charity" what they actually mean is "we asked our customers to donate at the register and then we donated that money." Don't donate at the register. They get a tax write-off for it and there's very little transparency about what's actually done with that money. Donating books or food goods for corporate drives is a little better but still not great.

    This reminds me of an old black and white competition TV show called "Queen for a day". The idea of the show was to have women compete for one thing that they wanted and they had to convince the audience to vote for their wish to be fulfilled so they could be "queen for a day". The problem was that the contestants ended up being really desperate women who needed medical equipment for their family members or something like that and it was really unpleasant when one of them got what they needed and the others just had to walk away with nothing because their wish wasn't "good enough". There are clips of this on youtube.

    Personally, this isn't a video I wholeheartedly agree with you (which is fine of course). I will say that I am not a fan of giveaways for followers, though I see the appeal which I agree with you on. I think its a 'cheap' way to gain followers, and I definitely didn't like that MrBeast was a part of that. However, I think you really tried to show MrBeast in a negative light to an extremity that I don't think was necessary. Some people in the comments section seems to be grouping MrBeast with other rich people that seemingly do charity for tax reduction which breaks my heart. I am far from rich, but I can appreciate it when the rich aids the less fortunate in a compassionate and meaningful way. Of course there are individuals who do it for tax reduction, but its counterproductive to promote equity and being non-discriminate while stereotyping another group of individuals as soulless money-hungry persons. That shouldn't be the way we try to make allies. MrBeast has done a lot of amazing things with TeamTrees alone, which you did briefly acknowledge, and but has also done a lot of amazing things outside of that (for instance buying a whole food store to give to a homeless shelter to which I believe he promoted supporting homeless shelters in). I don't know him personally nor am I a religious viewer of him, but I do watch his videos from time to time to which I can see him as an empathic guy. In regards to his waste, he has admitted that in the past he has been extremely wasteful in videos which is why he know tries to minimizes it somewhat such as using expired milk and cereal for videos instead of fresh ones and if he spends 24 hours in a forest he'll clean up his mess and promote how it affects the wildlife. Of course, there are still waste though which I am not a complete fan of. Every Youtuber has ways of gaining more followers. Whether it be through giveaways or through collaborations or another means. From what I've seen of him, he uses his platform to promote aiding the homeless and sometimes to do that you have to do a "necessary evil" of "exploiting them" for the shock value. I place some terms in quotations for the individuals in the video seemingly are fine with the concept of the video. Once again, I personally don't know MrBeast and am disappointed that he was in this situation and that we're at a point in time where we have to 'exploit' one another to aid one another. I don't think that simply giving out money to homeless individuals will aid them in the long run. I think giving them jobs will. However, I don't think he's as bad as what your video is seemingly (and perhaps subconsciously) promoting.

Thereafter? a Bill Pulte can 'give away' tiny bits of that fund FOR A LONG TIME … so it makes (him) seem VERY generous to common people.

    It's one thing to have a competition for lots of money, as it can show the competitor's struggles and it is more likely not involving people who desperately need it. But just giving away money, especially to people who need it, in a video feels so wrong. I mean, you are exploiting people's hardships and misery… and earning money. I'm pretty sure they just earn the money back, especially with those insane views. It just hurts to see people who have the money to help others do it for selfish reasons.

Then asked me to buy amazon gift cards for him. He would send extra money..ofcourse as long as I bought them. I politely declined and said that i could not risk being caught in a scam. If he was truly helping people good luck i am sure there are more people in need out there than i am. He blocked me instantly. The interesting thing is so did the Main Pulte account. So there you have it.

    Read the book “Winners take all” by Anand Giridharadas. Or just watch any of the interviews/talks he has done on YouTube. He really brings to light the red flags and faults of a system built on “Big philanthropy” which defunds and shuns government welfare at the same time.

    I would argue that him giving away money to charity after a requirement helps him fund the charity. If you just give away the money to charity he won't gain recognition, no recognition, less revenue and thus less giveaways for for future charities.

    Never saw any of your videos before but this was on point! congrats!
    I was following this guy for a couple of months, and i've even made some rt's, but i couldn't stop thinking how fishy everything look… Specially that most of his tweets were cringy as fuck, like he was exaggerating and being a real show-off like:

    I love giving away my money. It makes me happy to see people happy. Is that selfish? I don’t care. Helping people is good health. Amen 🙏
    or
    I might delete this tweet later but I'm thinking about doing a giveaway today
    or
    My wife and I are about to go on our Baby Moon, but first we want to give away money
    or
    I just sold one of my companies. That means more money to give away!
    OR THIS
    Even when she is in labor, Mrs. Pulte is telling me to HELP OTHER FAMILIES. She is an amazing woman!

    COME ON. This is too much. I don't think a genuine and humble person would tweet this. I couldn't stop imagine that cringey scenario were his wife was in BED after labor and saying" Bill… Please continue helping people…" NOT EVEN IN A MOVIE.

    I have read that CashApp is owned by one of his friends, so it's a great way to get people sign up and start using it. Free Ad!
    Almost created one account but no way, Jose!

    How do you suppose there can be healthcare for all and affordable housing? Who pays for it? Do you realize that 47%, almost half the entire population of the United States can’t come up with $400 in an emergency? I’m talking emergencies and a measly $400. Sure healthcare for all and affordable housing sounds great, I don’t know where it’s going to come from though,Especially with 30 to 60,000,000 illegals here and a proposed open border policy that allows anyone and everyone to come. It makes no sense sorry. It’s a nice thought though. If you have any kind of plan that I missing then please present it. I can’t see any way this would work as it is let alone with open borders

    But, but, if we had better wages, benefits, safety nets for the poor people, there would be less demand for Bill’s giveaways and he might stop!

    Oh wait
