‘What’s Trending’ and Ford to Bring Back the ‘Tube-A-Thon’ in December
The third annual “Tube-A-Thon” will take place on December 11 at Siren Studios in Hollywood. Organized by the Emmy-nominated online talk show “What’s Trending” in partnership with Ford, the event will bring together various celebrities (from YouTube and Hollywood alike) to help raise funds for The Covenant House, a charity that houses homeless youth throughout the Americas.
“Tube-A-Thon,” which will once again be hosted by Shira Lazar, will stream live from 7-9pm PT on YouTube. Additionally, the event will make its first TV appearance, with an edited, one-hour version to air on AXS TV.
As in previous years, the event will raise money for The Covenant House through tweets. Every time someone tweets with the hashtags #Tubeathon or #GoFurther, What’s Trending and Ford will donate $1 to the charity serving homeless youth.
YouTubers such as Trevor Moran, Timothy DeLaGhetto, Kingsley, Destorm Power, and Alphacat will make appearances during Tubeathon, in addition to a slew of other performers (such as Andy Milonakis, who recently signed with Endemol).
Furthermore, the “Tube-A-Thon” team has partnered with Comedy Gives Back, which is providing many of the event’s stand-up acts, and the crowdfunding platform Tiltify, which will also raise money for The Covenant House and stream the special on Twitch.Tags: #gofurther, 3rd annual tubeathon, Alphacat, AXS TV, Charity, Comedy Gives Back, crowdfunding, destorm power, Ford, Ford Motor Company, kingsley, Shira Lazar, the covenant house, tiltify, Timothy DeLaGhetto, trevor moran, tubeathon, twitch, What's Trending
