Raising funds for a boat

I want to travel the world in a large boat, making youtube videos. As I get more subscribers to my channel, and I start to earn from Youtube, I want to donate 50% of every video to give to several organizations like "Sick kids" and "Cancer can be beaten", and other charitable organizations. I believe I can make a difference. I currently have an old boat and it is only 26 feet and it leaks. I would like to get a 50 foot or larger boat to travel the world. I have been sailing since I was a kid, many years ago. I am 57 now and want to do this for at least 10 years. I am retired now and have the time to do this. 

I am a vet and have served my country of Canada with honour. In 10 years I will sell the boat and donate the entire proceeds to a charity. Boats are not cheap and I am not getting any younger. This really is the only way I can achieve my goals. 

If you can help me I will be extremely grateful and I will mention donors names in upcoming youtube videos. I am not sure how all this works but I hope to start my travelling in the spring or shortly thereafter. Thank you so much for your time and giving me this opportunity. 

If you look at my channel, you can see I have already been to several places, 52 countries to be exact. I plan on video'ing the entire trip from first purchasing my new boat to doing many land excursions, recording any mishaps, recording any repairs along the way as well as upgrades to the boat. If I have to buy a cheaper boat that needs repairs then I will do that too and record the repairs. I also plan to record cooking on a boat. Again, thank you so much for your help. 

And please like and subscribe to my channel to help get to 1000 subscribers.
