Benji and Judy Travis have amassed millions of views on YouTube. The couple and their three daughters have partnered with Convoy of Hope for Dancember, the Travis’ 24-hour live broadcast on their YouTube channel that will raise funds for children and families in Convoy of Hope’s programs throughout the world.
Benji says Dancember started with the intent of raising funds to help homeless teens in the U.S.
“We offered to dance for 24 hours if our YouTube viewers hit our fundraising goal,” says Benji. The campaign generated a lot of buzz among their fans and ended up smashing their original goal. The couple has since chosen several other nonprofits to support.
Benji attributes Dancember’s appeal to how fun it is to participate: The couple isn’t just providing a platform for donors to give — they offer a little entertainment in return.
Dancember will air on December 18 at 3 p.m.(PST). Visit convoyofhope.org/dancember for more information.
In Benji’s Words
We created Dancember because…
Giving back is really important to us. And giving in a non-traditional way is much more fun.
The best thing about my wife is…
She’s beautiful, inside and out: She’s genuine and kind-spirited.
Everyday I live by the rule…
Be grateful. Find balance. Prioritize.
The greatest thing I’ve learned being a dad is…
Being a father is a privilege. You’re their source of wisdom. You get to teach a human being how to be a human being.
