This is nice. It’s a nice thing to do for these people. I really feel quite strongly though that we need to move away from capitalising on emotion when it comes to our domestic poor. It’s distracting having so many shows where a tv personality or rich person comes in to help the poor. It seems like an unethical form of entertainment. This would have been a much nicer gesture if it hadn’t been filmed and if the content creators weren’t going to benefit financially from ad revenue on the views. By creating entertainment from helping the less fortunate we’re making society worse and we’re sending out the message that it’s inevitable that society will have homeless people. If every tv show that gave away stuff to the poor spent its allotted time informing its audience that it is society’s responsibility (not a YouTube channel’s) to look after the poor then I think we’d be living in a much nicer world. One thing I noticed from living in Scandinavia was that these type of shows don’t exist because their society’s have such strong welfare systems that there are very, very few people without a home and the ones who don’t have homes have easy access to free healthcare and a generous welfare system to get them back on their feet. Wouldn’t it be much better if everyone who watched this wrote a letter to their congressman asking him/her to reinstate unemployment insurance rather than tearing up and talking about how lovely it must have been for the 20 or so people it actually impacted? Again, nice gesture, but it shouldn’t be entertainment for all of us privileged people reading this website.
