    I am a Peace Corps volunteer in Moldova and I am so glad that they got highlighted in this vlog! Please do give to these organizations to help them send athletes! There are also many other organizations you can give to. I have put the links below. The situations for people with disabilities in Moldova is EXTREMELY difficult. Most buildings are not handicap accessible and many people with disabilities are neglected in society so please give! I can say from experience that it really does change a life!

    Weird to see The Knowledge Whale in a Rooster Teeth video.


    You can tell how much Burnie believes in the cause (As if matching donations wasn't enough of a sign). His support is just so evident in his voice and... Was he almost crying at the end, or...?

    The Olympics ( 'special' or otherwise) have ALWAYS been a celebrated test of mortal focus and drive.


    Thank You RT for tipping your toe into it. May we ALL experience the skin-tingling celebration of humankind at it's best! Forever!

    Absolutely awesome guys! Very inspiring. So nice to see the athletes so pumped just to be there. The regular Olympics has turned into scandals, arguments, enhancement drugs and athletes more interested in gold than the achievement of just being there in the first place.

    Such a profound experience just watching the Vlog. I can't imagine how it was to actually be there in their presence.

    Much love guys. Keep up the awesome Vlogs and the fantastic things you do.

    I was a little surprised we didn't get to see drone shots from so high, but I assume it's because the winds up there must be ridiculous

    Ohhhhh Burnie SAME! I am totally afraid of heights. Even on a 5 step ladder I'm like ahahaha, NOPE. Vertigo is not friendly.

    Super proud of you for going and assisting in raising the funds for these kiddos to go and compete. This looked amazing and tons of fun. XD!

    That looks like such an amazing experience! So glad Burnie was able to vlog some of it!! 


    I was wondering for Burnie not liking  heights much like myself was it easier to deal with heights on the amazing race when you have a price on your mind and couldn't really think about it unlike when you're here you're just getting others to "encouraging" you to go. That bridge would be nerve-wracking!!

      The company should have straight up donated the money since they represented RT at the event. Crowdfunding from your community rather than just giving to charity is shady as hell. Sponsoring a team and encouraging the community to give directly to the organization would have been a much better way to do it.

      The money is going towards the competitors for the summer games, not towards sending burnie and gavin to this.

      But sure you found them out, this was their big plan all along, 15 years of rooster teeth so burnie could get a free trip to Austria for 2 days!

      Doesn't matter. I'm sure the money went to a good cause but the perception is terrible. They didn't announce it as "help us send people to the special olympics." It sounded like "we need your help because we are trying to go to the special olympics to represent Rooster Teeth."

      Perception is everything. Burnie expected to SMASH a $25 Thousand dollar goal which crawled until he said he would match it. If they announced it correctly, they probably would have.

    My brother was an athlete in the Special Olympics on the local side of it all. I just want to say thank you guys for doing everything you've done for the families and athletes to help give them this life changing opportunity. Ive been a fan for a while and it means the world to me seeing you take the time and energy to support a cause that is very close to my heart.
