ROBERT Arrington, known for his YouTube channel "Deer Meat for Dinner," continues to show his love for the CNMI as he donated $1,000 to the Tasi to Table Fishing Club on Saturday during a program for the youth at the Minachom Atdao pavilion.

During Arrington's meeting with the Tasi to Table children, he shared the story of his first successful video on YouTube regarding deer meat. For that video he used Everglades Seasoning, which took notice of Arrington's work resulting in a contract with him.

Arrington then announced he was donating $1,000 to Tasi to Table/Saipan Fishermen’s Association to the surprise of SFA president Gene Weaver and the youth club members.

"Anytime I donate it's based on my conscience and what I feel," Arrington said. "Nothing is planned. Each month I find somebody to help. I looked at all these kids and I thought, what a great way to help. We are here for the Chamorros, for the Refaluwasch, and for the CNMI." Arrington added.

Through his donation, Tasi to Table members will be able to acquire fishing equipment,  Weaver said.

He added that they were not aware that Arrington would make a donation. “It’s for the kids and the kids will benefit. I was not expecting that — that donation just blew me away. It's for Tasi to Table, it's all for the youth. We are just trying to do our best to pass down our knowledge to the next generation. There used to be home economics and Future Farmers of America and they’re not there anymore. Tasi to Table teaches kids how to fish and to pass down the knowledge to the next generation.”
