Ryan Trahan raises $14 million - Journey across America with $00.01
Ryan's journey across America to deliver a penny to MrBeast stemmed from a conversation with the aforementioned YouTube star, in which MrBeast suggested pennies were extinct. Ryan Trahan then set out on a mission to use just one penny to fund his travel across the country which he would vlog the entire way with a series of episodes.

In another awesome touch, MrBeast was there to meet Ryan at the finish line in North Carolina, along with Ryan's friends and family. MrBeast also brought four briefcases along, each containing a sum of money ($100,000, $50,000, $25,000, and $10,000).
He offered Ryan the chance to guess and pick a briefcase, and whatever the contents held, MrBeast agreed to donate to Feeding America. Ryan ended up selecting the $50,000 briefcase, earning another some 50 meals for Feeding America. You can view the final scenes in the video below.
