MrBeast, aka Jimmy Donaldson, was born in Kansas, USA; however, most of his childhood years were spent in Greenville, North Carolina. Sources claim that his older brother raised him, and there is no other record of his parents' identities.
Jimmy went to the Greenville Christian Academy, a private high school in his region. He enrolled at East Carolina University but never finished it.
Growing up as a Gen Z, he was influenced by YouTube for most of his childhood years, making him want to become a YouTuber. Also, he had a big love for being in front of the camera, filming himself.
Jimmy started sharing videos on YouTube when he was just thirteen years old, in 2012, without any intentions or beliefs that he would make a fortune and career from it.
At first, he went under the username MrBeast6000, and the content he posted in his early YouTube days was mainly videos with an estimation of the wealth of other successful YouTubers.
Also, his early content includes videos focused on video games like Minecraft, Call of Duty, and Black Ops II. They are Let’s Play videoswhere he documented the playthrough of a game he played.
Later, in 2015 and 2016, he passively gained popularity with his video series ‘Worst intros on YouTube.’
Things got serious for MrBeast in 2017 when Jimmy became viral with his video where he counted to 100,000. That video was an instant hit and received thousands of views per day from the day it was shared. Now, in 2023, six years after it was shared, it has over 27 million views.
After that video, MrBeast explored different content styles and found his now ‘niche,’ making videos that include fun challenges, and giving large sums of money to those who win.
In addition to those challenges, he also gives thousands of dollars as donations, something no YouTuber has done before.
His career with this took off quickly, so he had to hire someone to help him with these challenges, filming them, gathering more people to be involved, etc. So, he entrusted this job to his best friends, who helped him grow his brand.
Now, MrBeast is a brand and company of around 30 people.
Besides the MrBeast channel on YouTube, Jimmy also has other channels, ‘Beast Reacts,’ ‘MrBeast Gaming,’ ‘MrBeast 2’, and ‘Beast Philanthropy.
From being just a YouTube star, Jimmy grew into the most prominent YouTube philanthropist of our time. It all started in 2019 when he organized a fundraising challenge called ‘TeamTrees’ and succeeded in raising over $20 million.
The money went to the ‘Arbor Day Foundation’ to plant one tree for every dollar that was donated. The project went global and received significant donations from notable people such as Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey, Tobias Lutke, etc.
MrBeast philanthropy ideas continued in 2020 when the ‘Beast Philanthropy’ YouTube channel was created. The idea was that all channel’s earnings would go to charity and food.
In 2021, Jimmy organized another philanthropic challenge called ‘TeamSeas’ to raise over $30 million for the Ocean Conservatory and the Ocean Cleanup.
