His rise to fame has been used as "a great example of how the emerging society gives extensive opportunities to individuals with great ideas, courage, and, of course, a significant portion of luck as opposed to the old society"
PewDiePie's popularity has allowed him to stir support for fundraising drives. In February 2012, PewDiePie ran for King of the Web, an online contest. He lost the overall title; however, he still became the "Gaming King of the Web" for the 1–15 February 2012 voting period. During the following voting period, PewDiePie won and donated his cash winnings to the World Wildlife Fund. He has raised money for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
PewDiePie also began a "Water Campaign" charity, where his fans could donate money to Charity: Water, in celebration of reaching ten million subscribers. PewDiePie also contributed one dollar to the charity for every 500 views the video announcing the campaign accumulates, up to a maximum of $10,000. PewDiePie had the stated goal of raising US$250,000, at the end of the drive, the amount raised was $446,612.PewDiePie would organize another charity drive for Charity: Water in February 2016.The drive raised $152,239, suprassing a $100,000 goal.
In celebration of reaching 25 million subscribers in June 2014, PewDiePie, announced another charity drive for Save the Children. The drive raised over $630,000, surpassing a $250,000 goal. In an interview with the Swedish magazine Icon, he has expressed desire to continue these drives as time goes on, and also credited John and Hank Green as two individuals who gave him the idea of making unique videos for charity.

In December 2016, he hosted Cringemas, a livestream held across two days (9 and 10 December, both at around 6 pm–10PM GMT), with other Revelmode creators.
