HugKnucklesTV To The Philippines!!


We are HugKnuckles and HottSamn, husband and wife YouTubers!! In only it's first year our channel has gained over 60,000 subscribers & 16 Million+ views from over 100+ countries in the world!! We are so proud and thankful for this!!

We are full-time college students as well at Texas State University! Go Bobcats!!!

In great part we owe a lot of our success to our Filipino audience. Because of this, it has truly been our dream to visit the Philippines to meet up with our fans, experience and document the amazing sites, culture, and food. 
Over the course of the last year we have featured many different Filipino businesses and well as Filipino pop culture icons on our channel. We would love to experience the things we have always talked about. 

Things we would like to expereince and vlog:


This is a Filipino based fast food chain whose commercials we have featured on our channel. We got a chance to visit one of their US locations which is 3 hours away and would like to visit one in the Philippines. 

WISH 107.5 BUS:

The WISH 107.5 bus is a complete radio station in a bus. Many artists that we have showcased on our channel have performed on the WISH bus. We were also featured in their 2nd annual awards show as a panel member to decide the winner of the 1st annual reactors choice award.


We have featured businesses like SM Supermalls whose commercials have greatly touched our hearts. We would love to visit one! 


ASAP (All-Star Sunday Afternoon Party) is the longest running musical variety show in the Philippines and GGV (Gandag Gabi, Vice!), a Filipino comedy talk show, are both shows we have reacted to segments from and we would love to visit the set or see a show. 

ASAP Soul Sessions:

Can you help us get there???

COSTS (remember there are two of us):

Luckily, we have had a family friend assist us with most of our expenses including our flight and hotels. We just have to come up with the rest. This is where we need your help! 

We only have a limited window of time to go before school starts back up again. We would need our passports expedited, which would cost this for the both of us. To check these fees, you can visit the website here!!


Missed work during the trip: $400 
Right now our finances are extremely tight and we would be unable to meet our responsibilites if we were unable to recoup the missed wages.
Medical, Transport, and Communication: $600
For this trip we will need immunizations to a few different diseases as well as funds to be able to take transportation to vlog sites. We will also need to add an international plan to our phone service for those days so we can keep in contact with home and eachother. 
Emergency & MISC: $500+
This would include funds to visit special locations to film vlogs as well as get us out of any "binds" we may get in to for unknowns. 

Pay it forward fund: $100
we want to be able to make an impact wherever we can while we are there. We want to be able to do good deeds anf spread love. (If we get more, we can give more)

The estimated departure day for the trip is July 25, 2017. We will be in the Philippines 4 days not including the two days worth of flight there and back . Anything we can earn up until our departure would be very appreciated! 

We are beyond grateful to be given this opportunity. We love the Philippines and all of our fans who are across the world. We are so excited to document the entire thing for YOU to see!

We would be so grateful for any help that you have to offer!!!

So much love from us at HugKnucklesTV!!!!!!!
