During his formative years in Greenville, North Carolina, Mr. Beast, alongside his elder brother, CJ Donaldson, who is also a well-known social media figure, spent his early years.

What Information Did Mr. Beast’s Mother Share About His Charitable Ventures?
The YouTube sensation MrBeast is renowned for his benevolent nature, although this was not always the case.
As per Rolling Stone, Jimmy Donaldson’s mother, Sue, revealed that her son was not particularly engaged in community service or volunteer work during his childhood.
However, the Philanthropist has made a lasting impact, notably by funding cataract removal surgery for 1,000 individuals who were visually impaired or almost blind and couldn’t afford the procedure.
Jimmy Donaldson, whose birth name is Jimmy Donaldson, proudly states in a video that has amassed 32 million views, “We’re enabling a thousand people to regain their sight.”
The video showcases the transformations of patients before and after the surgery, now able to see clearly thanks to the procedure. The YouTuber also presented cash and other gifts to some of the recipients.
The surgeries took place in Jacksonville, Florida, with the assistance of ophthalmologist and surgeon Jeff Levenson.
Levenson has been overseeing the “Gift of Sight” program for over 20 years, offering complimentary cataract surgery to uninsured patients who are blind due to cataracts.
MrBeast’s generous nature goes beyond this recent act. He is also part of an initiative to plant 20 million trees, collaborating with influencers such as Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey, and others.
