In a recent Twitter post, Ethan and Hila shared their concern about those experiencing financial struggles during the COVID-19 lockdown, as the United States has seen an unemployment rate of “10 to 30%” recorded, with that number expected to rise. The pair continued the statement, saying, “We knew we wanted to help, but we weren’t sure the exact method.”
Over the course of the next 100 days, Ethan will be creating a tweet at 12:00pm PST, which fans will need to retweet “and comment with [their] PayPal email address with the hastag #HELP”. Within 24 hours, the names of two people will be drawn and announced via Ethan’s Twitter account.
Indications of “cheating or bots” being used to increase one’s chances of being chosen will be immediately disqualified from the giveaway.
Influencers have shown a positive response to the announcement, including PLAYERUNKNOWN, who has donated $50,000, allowing for three entrants to be chosen everyday. Viewers have also shown their appreciation.
