Blimey.

It's still not quite sunk in. I don't think it really can. This book has been funded 10 times over and then some. Future projects of mine now have budgets, Rebecca's Fallout collection is probably going to double in size and the dogs are going to get at least three new chew toys each.

With all this support and good fortune coming our way, we're going to pass a little bit of it on. We are happy to announce that 5% of the profits of Fuck Yeah, Video Games will be going to the Albert Kennedy Trust, helping homeless LGBTQ+ young people get back on their feet.

If you're reading this you'll probably know that we have a large LGBTQ+ following. We're very proud to have created a space that everyone feels comfortable sharing who they are in, but we know that this doesn't always extend back to their real lives. By supporting the Albert Kennedy Trust with this book, we can help be more than just someone on the internet who is willing to listen.

Once again, thank you so much for your support. I just wrote an entire chapter that builds up to a pun so, that's now on you.

Love and consensual hugging.

- Dan and Rebecca

As a member of the lgbtq community as is my son. (Who introduced me to your channel) I would like to thank you for this, it means a lot to have you and Rebecca in our corner. You help my son get through his anxiety and depressive days, we love watching you on Twitch ( My son’s name on there is “Windy Potato” ) so proud of you and you both deserve all the good things because you’re one of the good things about YouTube and you never compromise your integrity. Oh yeah, and you constantly troll Emma! Sending hugs! Xoxoxo

I, as well as many other LGBTQ+ people are very grateful for this decision, I'm sure. I'm super glad to have been able to be a part of funding before the first 100% :D

You two have been an incredible support to so many people, myself included. Your generosity is remarkable. I am humbled by your support of our LGBTQ community and am glad you’ve made this place a home for the misfits and nerds. Much love <3

You two are just the damn best.
I'm one of those queer followers, I don't really watch twitch but I awlways refresh my prime sub for you. Seeing the little things like pronouns and flags on your Twitter bios had already put such a big smile on my face.
All my love to the doggies, and I hope things continue to get better and better for you and yours. <3

As the majority of my friends and part of the LGBTQ+ community, it is great seeing that our funds are going towards something truly meaningful. Even though I'm not in the LGBTQ+ sector, I still love helping other people who find it hard or who are struggling to come through. You two are my favourite muffins, Lemon and Poppyseed ones btw, and have given me 4 and a half years of great entertainment both on YouTube and Twitch; which you may recognise me from. The 500 hours of flinging Rico Rodriguez of a G9 Eclipse in Just Cause 2, wouldn't of been possible without the existence of Dan and also the many hours in RCT3 designing my p*his shaped rollercoaster. And not forgetting Rebecca for being the loveliest person on the internet and making me smile every time you and Dan go live on Twitch. You also got me back into art and animation for which I stopped cos I didn't think I was good enough....Keep being the awesome muffins you are and keep working hard on the book; you're nearly there! PS. Say hi to Reagan, Matilda, Eli and Peanut for me.

Dan I've been watching for a long time, I think since RTC3, but it's your attention to the community that has kept me around for so long. Thank you for all your hard work and good luck on whatever you may do in the future!

I'm a member of the LGBTQ+ community for more than one reason and I'm always pleased when I see prominent YouTubers and Streamers making an effort to be inclusive and welcoming to all walks of life. In this regard, you have always done an amazing job of trying to open up discussions around topics a lot of others wouldn't even try to delve into and as much as you might not always know the best way to approach something, you always try to take others views into account and are open to learning.

That’s awesome to hear. I’m trans and pan myself and this just confirms for me that you guys are truely determined to not just create a safe place, but to make an impact on the world. So thank you. I’ve got a trans friend who was homeless for over two months after coming out to his unsupportive parents. It was a charity like the one you’re supporting that made sure he stayed safe and in education. So again, thank you. You both have truely made an amazing decision and will have a very genuine impact on peoples lives xx

Don't worry Dan. I once spent the entirety of a history class building up a pun and then nobody got it. It was based on the Little Mermaid as well!

Why only help the lgbtq+ homeless? If someone is homeless and suffering they need help, it should not matter wether they are lgbtq+ or straight. Neither should it matter on skin tone, people are people, they deserve love and help when needed.
