Check out Will’s announcement here. All fans will be able to watch the special LIVE on Will’s YouTube channel on his 50th birthday this September 25th — all to raise awareness and donations for international advocacy organization Global Citizen’s education campaigns.

In March of 2018, YouTube creators (and lifelong fans of Will) Yes Theory challenged Will to bungee jump from a helicopter. Watch the challenge here. Will boldly decided to face his fears and accepted the challenge, under the condition the jump is done for charity.
Fans who want to watch the big jump — and Will’s birthday celebration — can do so by heading to Will’s YouTube channel to watch LIVE on September 25th, 2018. Exact timing will be released at a later date.
Will Smith launched his YouTube channel in December 2017 and has accumulated more than 2.5M subscribers and almost 60M channel views. Will is giving viewers a behind-the-scenes view of his global adventures and sharing the stories that have shaped his career and perspective.
Westbrook Entertainment will produce the live stream in conjunction with Fly On The Wall Entertainment. Fly On The Wall Entertainment also produced YouTube Original Katy Perry: Witness World Wide, the 96-hour livestream on Katy’s YouTube channel, in addition to the series Big Brother.
