Hey!

So, I’m going to jump to the point and hopefully shed some light on the current Youtube situation.

I received a copyright strike on my channel. Though THOUSANDS of you stood in my defense and helped me reverse the strike, I still feel like I’m suffering from this event. Unfortunately, my channel was hit very hard with the Demonetization wave that is still causing huge issues with Youtube. I had over ten pages of videos all Demonetized at once. My channel, unfortunately because of this, came to a stand-still.

When a video is Demonetized, it gets less promotion from Youtube because, ultimately, that video earns less for them as a company. This effects me by impacting my earnings significantly. Couple this with the famous September slump, and you have a recipe for disaster.

I've always been transparent with you guys. I'm NOT in the worst position ever. I have savings. I have money still coming from the videos I’ve made, but this entire event has caused me to open my eyes and realize, Youtube is changing. I’ve realized that I can be hit at any moment and my will to create and share with you all could be stomped out just as easily as a flame on a candle.

The bottom line is this; I’m asking for help. It's something I hate doing. I've preached that I hate asking for help, but if I want to continue creating on Youtube and having the sense of security I once had, I need this. Youtube is something so much more than a job to me. It's an opportunity to do something on a bigger scale, to help people that I’d never have the chance to do if I was not into video creation. I had hoped to accomplish more, but I'm worried my window of opportunity is shrinking. I’ve only scratched the surface, but there’s so much more charity donations that could help impact people on a personal level.

I do this because you all have helped me, in one way or another. In return I hope somewhere, I can help you, somehow. My goal isn't to make money. It never has been, and those of you that have been following me know that. Though unfortunate as it may be, money is what enables me to keep doing this and the giveaways that I love doing.

So, that's everything on the table. I'll also have a video that's in-depth on my channel if you want to check it out.

Thanks for reading/watching!
