Written by Clifford Mugerwa on October 17, 2023
The Wakiso based NGO Allan Children’s Foundation has scooped Youtube’s Silver Creator Award after surpassing 100000 subscribers on Youtube. The Silver Creator Award, is given to channels that reach or surpass ten thousands subscribers. It is made of Silver-plated brass.
Since March 2018, the look of the Silver Play Button was updated from a metal button housed within a window box with the channel’s name printed on the front glass pane to a cleaner-looking flat designed metal plaque award featuring the channel’s name embossed on it.
The founder of Allan Children’s Foundation, Allan Kato who couldn’t contain his excitement made the revelation on the foundation’s social media pages on Saturday.
“Thank you so much @youtube for 100k+ subscribers 🏼 we still can’t believe that it’s actually happening
Since the day we started our channel, we had always dreamt of this moment, and now it’s finally becoming a reality. So, cheers to reaching our first milestone, with more to come 🥂
We’re always grateful for the love and support you all have shown ❤️
Thank you @youtube for making this possible!”
