In March of 2018, Youtube creators (and lifelong fans of Will) Yes Theory challenged Will to bungee jump from a helicopter. Yes Theory is a group of friends traveling the world to seek discomfort and conquer fears. Watch the challenge here. Will boldly decided to face his fears and accepted the challenge, under the condition the jump is done to raise awareness and donations for international advocacy organization Global Citizen's education campaigns.
Will believes that every child should have access to the transformative power of an education, which provides the chance to thrive, live and succeed. Through the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation he has chosen to partner with Global Citizen to support their ongoing advocacy work on education that allows them to support Education Cannot Wait, a global initiative that provides 75 million children in crisis-affected areas access to education.
Will Smith launched his Youtube channel in December 2017 and has accumulated more than 2.5M subscribers and almost 60M channel views. Will is giving viewers a behind-the-scenes view of his global adventures and sharing the stories that have shaped his career and perspective.
