Filipino teacher writes an open letter to Ryan's World , asked him to "use his impact on kids to promote care for others and care for the earth"

 Ryan Kaji, 9, the most influential child and the highest paid YouTuber with almost 28 million subscribers on his Ryan's World channel received an open letter from a Filipino teacher.

Adie Isidro wrote an open letter on her Facebook account and tagged to Kaji Family and Ryan's World social media platforms. The educator from the Philippines has first congratulated the young social media star for his achievements. She also described on her letter how her 6-year-old niece became a big fan of Ryan for almost 4 years now.

But, as a teacher and a concerned adult, she decided to write an open letter for Ryan's World to raise a few suggestions for their future content. Isidro has requested Ryan for two most important issues to include on his content, teaching children how to dispose their trash properly and promote care for others.

Isidro's open letter:

" Dear Ryan's Toy Review,

Greetings from the Philippines!

First, thank you for your videos and congratulations on your success. My 6-year-old niece has been a fan of Ryan for almost 4 years now, and she definitely enjoys all your videos. She watches your videos in most of her waking hours (and I guess, many kids around the worlld would be doing the same thing). She sometimes thinks that Ryan is her best friend, and her older cousins would sometimes pretend to be Ryan in Zoom calls.

On the other hand, I would like to make two requests, as a concerned adult.

Like Loann, I am a teacher and it really bothers me to think where all the plastic wrappers that you would dispose of, after opening up the toys and gifts, go. I would think that many of the stuff that you would feature in your videos are sponsored, but I guess, it would really mean a lot, if you also help the parents of your viewers by teaching them how to dispose of their trash properly and not waste too much. Maybe, you can also promote reusing or recycling some plastic containers in your merch (I just found out that your electric toothbrush is not rechargeable and its bristles are not replaceable).

Also, I think, parents would also appreciate it if you also feature how you teach/guide your kids to care for people outside your family or outside your circle. There's too much poverty in the world, and it doesn't really help if all the kids who are watching your videos would just be led to think that they must have all the toys that they see Ryan is playing with. I can't help but think of poor families who would have access to your videos, but would not have enough money to buy the toys that you feature. And I feel for them.

I am thinking that since Ryan is very influential among kids, perhaps, you can use his impact on kids to promote care for others and care for the earth. I don't know how you will do this, but I trust that you will be able to come up with something.

Looking forward to your response and action on these requests before we totally lose our common home and before we lose our concern for others in how we guide the future generation.

I hope that your family stays healthy and well during this pandemic. 


Adie                                 "

Ryan has made nearly $30m in a year from “unboxing” and reviewing toys and games on YouTube to hold the title of highest-paid YouTuber for the third year running.
