When Dan Markham gives a wedding present, his motto might as well be “Go Big or Go Home.” He’s well enough off from his YouTube career that he could probably give anyone anything he wanted to – but he also has a huge heart so he wants the gift to mean something.

But what do you give someone for a wedding present who already has everything they could ever want?

Such was the dilemma Dan ran into when he found out that his YouTube friend Zack Nelson was getting married to his fiancee Cambry.

See, Zack also has a very successful YouTube career and could buy anything he wanted with his own money, so Dan had to be creative when giving Zack and Camry a wedding present they would never forget.

So, what did Dan decide to give them?

As part of some incredible volunteer work Dan was doing with Koins for Kenya, he decided to donate desks with Zack and Cambry’s name on it to a Kenyan school, as well as kick off a fundraiser in their name to help build a school for elementary kids.

What started as an awesome wedding gift turned into a life-changing experience for Zack and Cambry – and hundreds of Kenyans as well.

Hundreds of YouTube followers donated to the Koins for Kenya organization, which offers educational opportunities to rural Africans, and Zack and Cambry were able to pass on over $30,000 to help build an entire school.

Zack and Cambry met up with Dan in Kenya recently and were able to be at the unveiling of the new school. They vlogged their entire experience and you can watch the video below.

It’s awesome to see incredible people like Dan, Zack, and Cambry who have so much talent and influence – who then use that influence to making such an incredible impact around the world.
