Instead of the usual pranks on April Fool’s Day this year, our followers completed wholesome pranks across Twitter for a chance to receive $500 for a YouCaring fundraiser of their choice. To participate, members had to tweet a photo of their wholesome prank, tag @YouCaring, and use #AprilFeelsDay.
Below we’ve highlighted some of the best tweets from the #AprilFeelsDay campaign. From leaving a positive note on someone’s car to making a feel-good playlist for a friend, YouCaring followers made a positive impact on their communities this April Fool’s Day!

The #AprilFeelsDay recipient is Megan Johnson and her husband, Jeremy. They’re currently crowdfunding to grow their family after struggling with infertility for over five years. They discovered an Embryo Donation program and are rallying to raise $18,000 on YouCaring. After they received the $500 donation from the campaign, their fundraiser hit the $10,000 mark!
