Fans Raise Thousands For YouTuber After His Lego Collection Was Stolen



Republicattak, known for his videos featuring Star Wars Lego sets, said Friday that he was giving up creating videos after his Legos were taken in a burglary. 

“I don’t know what I’m going to do,” he said in the video. “It really was my passion… that’s the end of this channel.”  

Following the creator’s emotional video, many on the Internet quickly banded together raise money through a GoFundMe for him, which has racked up $18,075 as of Sunday evening.

Ryan McCullough, who started the GoFundMe, wrote on the campaign’s page that “it would be incredible to help him rebuild his collection.” McCullough, who is of of Melbourne, Florida, set a goal of $1,000, noting the YouTuber’s lego collection was worth an estimated $18,000.

The campaign picked up steam after it was mentioned by several news outlets. 

Republicattak on Saturday took to Twitter, which says he is located in France, to thank those who donated.

“You just gave me the will to move forward,” he wrote in a tweet.
