YouTube Channel What’s Trending to Livestream Charity Event

Samsung's Hope for Children event will recognize Chelsea Clinton

The YouTube channel What's Trending will be Samsung's official livestream destination for the technology company's Hope for Children charity event on Tuesday in New York.

What's Trending personality Shira Lazar will host an hour-and-a-half red carpet show ahead of the Samsung event, which will recognize Chelsea Clinton. According to Lazar, the event will attract a number of celebrities, including Drew Brees, John Legend, Tracy Morgan and others. The official hashtag for the livestream is #Hope4Children, which can be used to pitch questions to the celebs.

What's Trending, which hosts a daily show featuring buzzy videos, has done some philanthropic work in the past. In December 2012, the channel put on a show to raise money for people affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Tuesday's stream gets underway at 5:30 p.m. ET and can be viewed here.
