Calm yo tits. The apocalypse hath not arrived. But it IS pretty weird living in a world without Zoella and a load of our other fave YouTubers. What is happening exactly? Well, even though it’s terrifying and we’re kinda wondering how else we’ll be procrastinating today… It is for a good cause.
The #RedOut is here and it’s raising awareness for the injustice and the unfair treatment millions of young people face across the world. Zoella has jumped on board this Red Nose Day initiative along with fellow YouTubers and they’re going OFFLINE for a whole 24hours.

Also, the number one trend is #RedOut. People are talking! Youtubers have huge platforms and can use them in the most unique ways!

And before you wonder why some of your other faves aren’t getting involved, it’s got nothing to do with being unsupportive of the cause:

It is making people notice:
But we do have withdrawal already…
Could you actually imagine if this was it, though? Like, the end of all our YouTube fandoms. Done. Gone. Goodbye.
HOW WOULD WE LIVE?
