About The YLVIS Fan Club UNICEF Fundraiser:
Ylvis fans around the world are donating to UNICEF to honor Ylvis in the ongoing YLVIS Fan Club UNICEF Fundraiser!
Inspired by Bård Ylvisåker’s tweets from March 14, 2014 in which Bård encouraged his followers to donate to UNICEF, and in light of Ylvis’ support of UNICEF on their talk show I kveld med YLVIS the YLVIS Fan Club created a fundraiser to raise money for UNICEF and track fan contributions.
Fans can donate online through a dedicated fundraising website setup by the YLVIS Fan Club, or though their local UNICEF chapter and then provide proof of donation to the YLVIS Fan Club to be included in the Fan-Raised Total.
In just under one week’s time Ylvis fans worldwide donated over $2000 U.S. Dollars to UNICEF on short notice to celebrate Bård’s birthday on March 21, 2014. By Vegard’s birthday on May 19, 2014 the total was up to $4,500 U.S. Dollars.
Donations have come from fans around the world, including but not limited to the USA, Canada, Norway, Denmark, Brazil, Argentina, Singapore, Thailand, Poland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Finland, Russia, Ukraine, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
The YLVIS Fan Club received a special response from Bård in regards to the UNICEF fundraiser via Ylvis’ management:
“Wow – thanks you guys. This is the best present anyone has ever given me and this is from a guy who’s received an Xbox, diamond encrusted roller skates, and a live tiger. Seriously, it means a lot to me to see our fans supporting such an important charity as UNICEF.” – Bård Ylvisåker
Vegard took to Instagram and tweeted his appreciation for the contributions of fans after being notified on his birthday:
“Wow! I’m speechless! This is the best gift I’ve ever gotten! Except for the dyed pressed leaf I got from my two year old. It looks awesome…” – Vegard Ylvisåker
In just four months’ time the YFC UNICEF fundraiser hit over 50% of its goal of $10,000 U.S. Dollars and was written about on the Norwegian news site Aftenposten:
In 2015 the YLVIS Fan Club partnered with UNICEF Norge to run campaigns for fans to donate directly to Ylvis’ home country UNICEF chapter in Norway for Bård and Vegard’s birthdays.
With the support of many dedicated Ylvis fans around the world, the YLVIS Fan Club hit their goal in September 2015 – raising over $10,000 U.S. Dollars for UNICEF in honor of Ylvis!
The YLVIS Fan Club continues to track fan contributions to UNICEF around the world and now hopes to double the goal to help even more children! Please show your support and donate!
