The YouTuber raised £28.8K for the charity through the sales of his ‘courage to exist’ merchandise.
Daniel Howell, who is an ambassador for the organisation, collaborated with IRL Merchandise on the fundraising drive – with the total being announced on Young Minds’ Twitter account:

Daniel became ambassador for the charity back in October 2017, after releasing a video where he opened up about his depression.
The creator then went on to take part in the #helloyellow campaign on World Mental Health Day, before launching the special range of merchandise in October 2018.
As a charity, Young Minds aim to improve the emotional health and well-being of young people and children in the UK.
