Why This Charity?
Comments like "why'd they donate to this when you can be donating to this? How selfish, messed up, stupid, etc..." I mostly see this on anything charity-related on YouTubers' videos.
Because different people have different priorities. And just because they donate or raise awareness for one thing doesn't mean they don't care and will never donate to other things. Everyone leads different lives and have lived through different experiences and due to those they'll prioritize and want to donate to things they've personally been affected by.
Myself, for example. I'll probably donate more and want to raise awareness more for things like animal rescue organizations, animal cruelty, there's a few more "feminists" (maybe you can call it that) or rape-culture focused ones (like cosplay does not equal consent-related projects), wounder warrior projects and different military/soldier focused charities. Does that mean I'll never donate to things like cancer (the typical go to one people use in their arguments -why don't to this when you can be donating to cure cancer?-)? No, I have before and I will later. Obviously it's not the only thing I'll donate to or be willing to participate in. Ice bucket challenge for example. Toys for tots. Homeless charities. Third world countries & children there. Etc, etc. It just means if given the choice, chance, I'll lean more towards those first few charities and organizations over others, just due to personal experiences.
Also remember, this is subject to change. As life continues on people will go through more and different experiences that can change their priorities and add to what organizations and charities they feel more connected with and passionate about.
People should just be happy that at the end of it all, they're still doing something that'll help out others and putting money towards a good cause.
