About this entry

In today’s world, it is so easy to get caught up in the negativity around us. As a society, we often forget that there is so much to be grateful for and so many reasons to Share the Love. Stephen is so passionate about the Share the Love message because it is a reminder to do three things: have fun, give back and spread positivity. He uses it to try to encourage others to do these things in their own communities. With the pressures of life, it can be easy to get in the trap of taking life too seriously, and if we committed to having more fun as a society, we’d be taking steps in the direction toward a happier way of life.

 

Why does this entry deserve to win?

Stephen is looking to create an environment where people can demonstrate love to one another. The world can be filled with hateful words and comments especially on social media. His organization shares fun challenging games, goes on amazing adventures and provides positive uplifting entertaining content. The mission in all of his videos is to “Share The Love” and to uplift viewers with awesome videos, brighten their day, and help them remember that love is what brings people together in harmony.

 

Stephen uses his platform to try to encourage others to have fun, give back and spread positivity in their own communities. With the pressures of life, it can be easy to get in the trap of taking life too seriously, and if we committed to having more fun as a society, we’d be taking steps in the direction toward a happier way of life. Then of course, it is obviously important to focus on is paying it forward and giving back to the community. In addition to that, spreading positivity is something that sounds so easy, but many of us forget to do. He's chosen to use his content to spread positivity, but anyone can take small actions like complimenting somebody, standing up to a bully, or even remembering to smile more, saying “Please” and “Thank you,” and appreciating people for what they DO versus focusing on the things they don’t…these things go a long way! They may seem like small steps individually, but put together we can create a tidal wave effect of sharing the love.

Results

Stephen Sharer is one of the fastest growing social media personalities with a loyal fan base of over 8 million YouTube subscribers. Stephen is a leader in providing family friendly content with a positive message of “Staying Awesome” and “Sharing the Love”. Over the last two years, Stephen and his family have engaged over 3.5 billion viewers to over 600 viral videos of positive family fun. He has created an environment where people can demonstrate love to one another.

He has also had the opportunity to work with Make-A-Wish, a nonprofit that grants the wishes of children with critical illnesses, is a cause close to my heart because it truly embodies the “Share the Love” message. He's been lucky enough to meet several children through Make-A-Wish to help turn their wishes into reality. Most recently, he spent the day with James, a young boy living with Muscular Dystrophy who happens to be a huge fan. They had an epic day spent at the Sharer Family house where they explored in the woods, played with Nerf blaster, went to an arcade and even got to make a vlog together. The ability to put the “Share the Love” message into action and have a positive impact on kids and families like James’ makes the hard work that goes on behind the scenes of being a YouTube creator worthwhile.
