Becoming Youtube: Charity/Syria edition


After tackling other Youtube-centric topics over the last year, Becoming Youtube's second-to-last episode takes on charity. On the heels of the Vlogbrothers' annual #p4a (which raised over $870,000 for various charities, Dec 2013) and Jacksgap's Rickshaw Run (which raised over $175,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust, Dec 2013), Ben and Jack ask if the mass media have desensitized us to the images of people in need, to black and white videos with sad children and melancholy music in the background, has it "made us too familiar with the plight of every fucker?" ... While visiting/interviewing Syrian refugees in refugee camps in Jordan.


lbr, this could've been far worse.
