For the second year in a row, What’s Trending will bring together the online video’s biggest creators to give back to the community. YouTube Space LA will house Tube-a-Thon, a charity event raising money for Covenant House, on December 12th.
Last year’s Tube-a-Thon featured a plethora of YouTube’s performers, who put on their best shows during a two hour charity drive. From Hannah Hart and Grace Helbig to Pentatonix to the Shaytards, many of online video’s brightest stars were out in full force.
This year, things will be slightly different. Virgin has stepped aside as the event’s sponsor, with the Ford Fiesta Movement picking up the slack and continuing to build its already-expansive presence on YouTube. And while YouTube all-stars like Chester See, Freddie Wong, Toby Turner, and Rooster Teeth will make up the bulk of the performers, Vine will also be well represented, with Brittany Furlan, Paige Kennedy, and King Bach all slated to participate.
The whole shebang gets going on December 12th at 6 PM, so check back here once the stream goes live. For those people who like saving homeless children (i.e. everyone), Tube-a-Thon is worth checking out.
