YouTube personality Frankie Grande has lived up to his promise and donated his Big Brother 16 winnings to build schools in Africa. While he was on the show, the brother of pop star Ariana Grande promised he would donate the dough he won in various challenges to the buildOn organization to build a school in Malawi.

I’m so honored to be partnering with buildOn to travel to Malawi to help build another school,” Frankie says on his fundraising page. “This school will forever be the most special because we are dedicating it in my grandfather’s memory.”

Various other Big Brother alums also pitched in to donate to the project, including Caleb Reynolds with a whopping $10,000 donation.

Donations to the buildOn Frankie Grande School project can be made here.
