On Thursday, THE biggest YouTube stars united to Stand Up To Cancer in a livestream that took the internet by storm. We’re talking Zoella, Alfie Deyes, Joe Sugg, Marc Zapanta, Oli White… and many more!
#StandUpWithYT trended on Twitter during the four hours of fun-filled YouTube craziness, as more than 50 creators took part in weird and wacky challenges as part of the fundraising campaign. All the money raised went to fund game-changing cancer research.
A lot. But here were some of our fave moments…
1. Zoella encouraged everyone to make a difference
2. Joe Sugg learnt about cancer with the help of a contortionist, and got into a suitcase…
3. Topless Baker decorated a cake while receiving electric shocks
4. Sam Thompson got competitive on a space hopper
5. And both Oli White and Doug Armstrong opened up about their own personal reasons for supporting Stand Up To Cancer
Also among the YouTube royalty demonstrating their support were Scola Dondo, Em Ford, Stephanie Lange, Josh Pieters and Jack Maynard.
It was a super fun, high energy day, and we LOVED that all our fave YouTubers spent it encouraging their millions of followers to donate and join the rebellion against cancer.
