Two projects I’ve been working on for at least the past year and more, The Tommy Edison Experience and The Clairity Project, have come together in a pair of collab videos.
In the first video, Tommy Edison challenges Claire Wineland from http://YouTube.com/ClairityProject to guess what’s in her hand while blindfolded.
Subscribe to Claire:
Claire Wineland is 18 years old and has cystic fibrosis – a genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. Her channel, The Clairity Project, is about sharing her world with us through videos and photos as she answers questions about her life. The goal is to break down the barriers that we tend to have with people who are living with an illness.
In the second video, the two YouTubers swap their roles when Claire Wineland challenges Tommy Edison to play “Guess What’s In My Hand” on her channel.
