It’s no secret that fans are one of the main contributors to a social media star’s success. Unfortunately, not all of these influencers appreciate their supporters enough.
So when an elderly YouTuber from Portugal wrote down the names of his subscribers in a notebook to thank each one of them individually, it was a breath of fresh air – and it made him an instant YouTube hero. Not surprisingly, his action took the internet by storm and his post quickly went viral.
There are a lot of YouTubers out there – all offering content as varied as you can imagine. Some are weird and some wonderful and yes, some just downright disturbing.
But Nilson Izais Paulinho, who has made only 29 videos on his channel, is not your typical YouTuber. Although his interests (talking about his garden, flowers, and making DIY slimes) may be considered a “basic” content on the platform, one of his posts made him the most old-school and courteous YouTuber out there.
You see, when Nilson is not documenting his skills on tape, the senior citizen is taking the time to simply write down the name of his YouTube subscribers in a notebook and he thanked them individually for following his work.
In a video captioned “agradecendo os comentários dos meus inscritos,” which roughly translates as “thank you for the comments from my subscribers,” Nilson showed off a list that he’d handwritten in a notebook. All he wanted to do was thank them individually for their love and support.
Nilson then read out the names of each and every person in a separate video. He started doing this a couple of months ago and had been thanking them since then. After noticing Nilson’s sweet gesture, netizens decided to return his kindness by making him an internet star.
Nilson’s only had 1,862 followers in January. Now, the total subscription count of his channel is 4.2 million and counting!

Brazilian Artist Turns Old Tires Into Colorful Pet Beds
Would you get one of these environment-friendly pet beds for your own beloved dog or cat?
Most of us usually just throw away things that we no longer need. However, one Brazilian artist has found a great new purpose for old tires that have been tossed in the trash. He decided to turn the tires into amazing beds for your beloved pets.
Amarildo Silva is an awesome artist based in Campina Grande, Brazil who likes to take garbage left on the street and turning them into something useful. Silva started collecting tires when he realized that homeless animals would use them as makeshift beds. The craftsman decided he could repurpose the old tires and create them into an environmentally friendly and cozy bed for pets.
Silva has turned hundreds of old tires into amazing little pet beds.
Man Uses Money He Found On The Street To Buy Food For Homeless People
Instead of pocketing the cash, he used it for the greater good.
Money doesn’t just grow on trees or magically appear when you need it. But there will be times that we would find some in private or public places. What you do with it, however, will describe who you really are.
Marvin Tan Juan Pigalan from the Philippines found a Php 500 (approximately US$ 9.62) bill while walking in the street. His first instinct was to return it to its rightful owner. But when he couldn’t find the person who dropped the cash, he decided to use it for a good cause instead of keeping it for himself.
