CROSSIN OFF AN 88-YEAR-OLD GRANDMA'S BUCKET LIST!!

Publicat pe
Ellie is an 88 year old superwoman. She started skiing when she was 33 years old and at the age of 82 had to give it up because of too many injuries. Ever since, her dream has been to get back on the slopes one last time. Luckily, our friends at Wish of a Lifetime heard Ellie's story and decided they'd help her achieve that goal. We were so lucky to have taken part in this adventure and want to thank our friends at Wish of a Lifetime a million times for inviting us along on this journey.

  • If you have a grandparent that has a wish they'd wanna fulfill, let us know in the comments below! We may just do something like this again :)

    • my grandma is 73 years old and she has spent her whole life caring for other people. She became a nurse to serve in the air force during the Vietnam war and then came home to work full time as a nurse while raising 3 kids. she has been like a mother to me since the day I was born and I wouldn’t be here without her. her favorite thing to do is to go on cruises. she hasn’t been able to go because all of her money goes towards everyone else. she has to pay for my grandpa to be in a nursing home and she supports me and my mother. she puts on a good show, but I can see how much she misses the beach and how much she misses cruising. I hope to be able to take her on cruises when i’m an adult and have enough money! I support and love the message that you are spreading. it has inspired me to live everyday to the fullest 💛

    • Yes Theory my grandma is not doing too well and is very hard headed but she is the sweetest lady you could ever meet and she is always paying tho her pain for the ones she loves I will be honest idk what I could do to make her enjoy her last couple of months but just one thing too make her happy would make me the happiest I’ve ever been I highly doubt I will get anything back but I would rlly like to just let my grandma have one more big Adventure thank y’all and yall are truly amazing

    • My grandparent is 93 and dreams of being able to visit his family one more time!

    • Hi, new to YES Theory fam! My grandmother is actually turning 88 years old this year and she would love to go to Vegas one last time-- legit to gamble, drink (black label) and have a good time. She loves meeting new people and can strike up a conversation with ANYONE. She is an immigrant originally from Cuba moved to the states for a better life for her and her five kids and now she currently resides in Miami, Florida. I feel like you guys are the perfect people to show her a great time! She gets excited from just having paramedics come to the house lmao... for real though xD

    • I'm a sitski teacher and I do this all the time for people with a disability and it is so nice to see you guys do it. Myrandmother and father are not able with their health to do something like that anymore and they where adventures, but I have a good friend of mine who is around 60 years old and has multiple sclerosis (MS) and she really wants to go to the northern part of Finland and do a snowmobile and husky safari and hopefully see the northern lights. Me and my girlfriend want to take her there, but we as students don't have the money for it.

  • U guys should get an oscar😢😃

  • This made me teary eyed. I just love you Yes Theory.

  • I work for hospice in northern NY and see people at the end of their lives on a regular basis. When your days left on this earth are short, everything becomes very distilled and you realize what is REALLY important in life. Thank you for doing what you do, and reminding people to take advantage of the one precious life we are all given, and to make the most of it while we can. Tomorrow is never promised so every today needs to be lived to the fullest. This world needs more people like you. Thank you

  • i´m not crying. you are.

  • Y’all ski Buschwacker or Cat Dancer at Keystone? Hardest trails I’ve ever done

  • You guys are on a great mission. Congrats 👏 God bless 🙏

  • Hey guys! i'm the only Syrian fan you'll ever meet probably and i think ya'll should come and visit Syria and spread your love into our country. I'd love to show you guys around our country and i promise you you'll enjoy it. it's 100% safe if you're wondering, let me know what you guys think (SAY YES)!!!!

  • Meet Ellie again

  • I'm ugly crying right now 😭💛

  • i love this channel. thank you fellas. this was amazing!!

  • Seeing her so happy made my 7 year old brother cry ❤️

  • My grandpa, awhile back got his turbo chip stolen from his ford f-250. He always tells me about all the good times he had with it. Going fast on the freeways, scaring my grandma because he was going so fast. I always tell myself that when I get a job (i am 14) I will try my best to get him a new chip. It's always been on my bucket list, I just don't want to be to late...

  • omg i cried so hard

  • 😏 🥋 I I👌 Neck yourself

  • My grandpa past away while skiing when he was 80. He lived life to the fullest until the very last and died peacefully doing his favorite thing.

  • What an inspiring Lady. I teared up through most of this video! Can't get enough of Yes Theory

  • my grandma is 73 years old and she has spent her whole life caring for other people.

  • What you guys are doing is absolutely amazing! I’ve only just found your channel and I wish I would’ve found it earlier because even though I’m only in high school, you’ve sparked my dying dreams of adventure. I love that you have made so many differences in so many different lives, so keep up the great work! You are what makes this world so incredibly beautiful ❤️

  • I cried...

  • this got me crying man, Yes Theory the best channel on RO-tv

  • My grandfather was in the navy for many years. He has gone through cancer twice, and survived both. He is a true fighter, but he is getting old. He wants to do amazing things like kayaking in the great canyon and camping in beautiful forests. His laugh and smile will make anyone’s day. It would be a dream come true for him to finally do something he loves, because he has devoted himself completely to our fam.

  • How is that i always end these vids with either tears in my eyes or a stupid fucking grin on my face Edit : Or both

  • If anyone dislikes this video their sick.

  • This is so beautiful it made me cry...

  • oh my gosh I'm crying so much

  • This video is so good, one of my favorites of the channel for sure. Don't know how it doesn't have more vies. Amazing initiative :)

  • Beautiful xx

  • So heart warming

  • You will not lose Amar on the ski slopes. Not the most fashionable

  • This is the most important video you've ever made!

  • My grandfather has never been to the US before. He lives in Bulgaria. I have not seen him in 4 years. He had two heart attacks and lost feeling in his left arm. After years of being told by his doctors that he can’t travel by plane to come visit his family in the US, he can now finally travel. It would mean the world to him to fly to the US, see us all again, and explore a part of the world he’s only dreamed of.

  • I know this video is a year old but I’m just seeing this now. This video hits home more than any video Yes Theory has made because I’ve skied my entire life. I also work at a small ski hill in rural Minnesota. While working there I’ve been trained on a sled just like the one in the video only ours are sized for kids only. I haven’t had a whole lot of opportunity’s to take kids out skiing on it but I jump at the opportunity when it arises. I love sharing skiing with people . That’s the main reason for becoming a ski instructor. I’m currently working on getting a skiing for the blind program in the works for next session . I love the idea of what yes theory does. They make things happen for other people and teach the world to be open to new things. I do my best to allow everyone no matter what the opportunity to ski.

  • I spent 90% of this video crying

  • you have me crying at 3:30 in the morning..

  • yes theory i need to tell you something, i was adopted at the age of 9 and has just reached out to my biological parents about 2 days ago, amazing experience, i was wondering if you could help out in some way for me to reach her

  • Who the hell is cutting Onions?

  • i just cried my eyes out at this lmfao

  • 2:04 amaar no hand shaking just nice to meet you

  • Thank you. For everything you do

  • my grandma just turned 80 and she is the kindest person I know, she continues to rescue dogs from Mexico right now she has 4, this year she couldn't go because she had a major leg injury when she went for a ride n her electric bike (tricycle) and crashed her leg got infected. One of the very last things on her bucket list is to go see polar bears in the train trucks out in Montreal. We live in Vancouver. You guys always inspire me to live life to the fullest, so last summer i went to Kenya alone on a service trip and built a class room for the kids. This summer I hope to go to Ecuador. Love you vids keep it up.

  • Thank you so much for doing this. ❤️

  • I love this freaking channel!!

  • WHO 👏 IS 👏 CUTTING 👏 THE 👏ONIONS

  • Oh matt😍 your really cute even when you cry😊😊

  • Holy shit i cried!!

  • I have dupretion

  • Incredibly inspiring! Its amazing to see you guys be a part of this. Ellie encapsulates the beauty of life, -- with her son and grandson there too... man, amazing.

  • The grandma's name on the movie up is ellie and this ellie is an adventurer too COINCIDENCE I THINK NOT

  • This got me in the feels on a new level.

  • I’m a grown ass man , seeing her going down the mountain and reliving her younger days, I teared up.

  • This is one of the most heartwarming videos on RO-tv. Being from Cyprus , its very rare to find people like you and opportunities like these - you guys inspire and motivate me but it feels so unreal because you are far away.

  • im actually crying a little bit. this is amazing.

  • I cried the whole video. You guys are amazing.

  • this is sooooooo cute who cried??

  • that's so incredible. Thank you so much guys

  • thank you for regularly putting out the realest and best content on youtube... soo cool seeing authentic emotions not fake doucheheads.. matt crying was so wonderful thank you fellas, love ya

  • very touching video. what a wonderful memory for everyone involved to have. amazing.

  • My grandma is the most optimistic and caring person I've ever met. When I say her heart is pure cold I'm not exaggerating in the least. That woman always has a smile on her face even when her life has given her so many reasons not to. She's lost a child, had an abundance of health problems- a stroke, heart arrhythmia, multiple broken ankles that have confined her to the chair in her living room for 8 months at time. She told me the last time I visited her about wanting to go to Maine to see a frozen lake she saw online. She texted me a few days ago about wanting to travel somewhere, anywhere again. She feels like she's finishing her life in a chair that she can't get out of and she's has a simple dream of getting out to see any part of the world before she can't anymore.

  • My grandma was born on Italy, then she and her family had to come to South America after the second world war, so her wish is to go one last time to the place she grow with her family (I cry so hard on this videos, i really love your stories and videos)

  • I am from India, My name is Siddhant. You guys are the best, giving a grandma to live her life again and give her chance to ski again. Man, you guys are doing a great job. Living your life at the fullest and experiencing other people life by sharing it. Keep enjoying your life and live and learn.

  • She is so nice

  • This is the greatest video I’ve ever watched😊

  • I'm a sitski teacher and I do this all the time for people with a disability and it is so nice to see you guys do it. Myrandmother and father are not able with their health to do something like that anymore and they where adventures, but I have a good friend of mine who is around 60 years old and has multiple sclerosis (MS) and she really wants to go to the northern part of Finland and do a snowmobile and husky safari and hopefully see the northern lights. Me and my girlfriend want to take her there, but we as students don't have the money for it.

  • jesus, this was so emotional, nearly started crying as well boys... I'm watching this in 2019 but from now on i will never miss a single freakin' video of you - love you for doing this! keep up this amazing work - love you!

  • I want her energy 😓💕

  • You guys are amazing.

  • Re-watching this episode made me really emotional, i always admire the old people with still the desire to live on & be excited with the tomorrows. In my entourage, i always try to make old people smile & happy because they're still here and kicking ! Some families, help-workers often forget that. It was a really good episode with you guys ! Really appreciated it :)

  • you guys made me cry, thank you and keep going with your awesome channel

  • Has no one told this family that nail polish heavily impedes the IR light passing through the nail? Thats probably why the pulse oximeter showed such a low value. :)

  • truly... amazing...

  • this just made me cry so much

  • Gosh i can't hold my tears.

  • i cied like a fucking baby watching this

  • My grandma has been diagnosed with cancer for 5 years almost and all she ever wanted to do was to go to the olympics without it being too loud and without germs so if you can do that with the next Olympic Games that would be super cool of you

  • This video made me cry!

  • I recently discovered your channel and have been literally binge watching all the videos, the content you guys come up with is just so meaningful and your motto always inspirational.All of you guys are from all over the world and the brotherhood between y’all is beautiful!!It gives your subscribers the hunger to have it all by stepping outside their comfort zones and seeking discomfort! Cheers guys, you all are doing an amazinggggg job.❤️ Love from India, Aadya :)

  • Matt you're not a loser! Snowboarding is better than skiing!!

  • Love how positive these people are! Wish I knew people like them!

  • lol I have watched this video like three times and have cried every single time... I LOVE this CHANNEL so MUCH!!

  • I could watch and rewatch this video and it’ll never fail to inspire me to be passionate about something 110% till the end. I love this channel

  • Wow my grandma is turning 90 this January and she does not have any illnesses. She even walk to the church almost everyday

  • who ever dis liked the video, they have no heart 💓

  • My grandfather has Alzheimer’s/Dementia, he was a truck driver all his life, the only problem is he rarely got to enjoy the sights! Id love for him to be able to just have the best day of his life before he totally forgets everything & all of us!

  • My grandpa has always wanted to go skydiving, but never did because my grandma told him that she didn't want to see him skydive. And now that my grandma has passed, I don't think he will ever get to live that dream.

  • Damn... tears. So good.

  • Absolutely beautiful

  • No words

  • How can anyone dislike this video ???? I JUST WANT ONE OF THEM TO TELL ME WHY !!!!!! :(

  • just WOW

  • I need more of these!! I work in homecare and I try and make everyday the best day for everyone because you never know. And this warmed my heart!! I would love to fill their dreams as you did for Ellie

  • I just lost my grandma 2 yrs ago to cancer and this has me crying now so thank you lol. Love what you do keep it up.

  • Oh my goodness! I’m crying. 😭 this is my favorite yes theory video hands down!

  • Oh My God, this is the best of the best Video in this Channel. You guys and Ellie, of course, are giving me so much inspiration. I am tearing up because of watching Ellie screaming of excitement to the way down. The way you guys surround him to bring good vibes to her is super great. Thank you Yes Theory

  • This is adorable!

  • This probably isn't possible but as the 49 say all you need to do is ask to make it happen My grandpa lost his drivers license a few years ago and he is really really sad and all his life he had been driving cars, he raced cars and my mom told me a story about one time he made the front cover of the newspaper because he went airborn in a race car, I'm not sure if it would crush him or complete him to race around a track in an old sports car, Mabey but lets see? from your youtube channel i learned that you can be surrounded by love in a lawless city, there are more kind people than evil, life is your own thing, i have heard how to live your life by steps, but I learned fro you guys that there are so many more steps than just going to work to pay for a car to be able to go to work, it's working to play and learn and develop as a community. A community was something like neighbors next door and that's it, now its anyone thats willing to seek discomfort. pain is temporary but defeat or not getting out there is forever, every day counts. till the end.

  • My eyes are wet

  • I am ugly crying I love Ellie so much !!!

  • Smh already crying 15 seconds in

  • My grandmother actually had a triple by pass surgery about two year ago. Her dream has always been to take a trip to Italy. I have made it my goal as her granddaughter to take her but her condition has been slowly worsening. Being a sophomore in college and her oldest grand child I am not sure I will ever be able to make her dream come true. Her heart is still in bad shape but has been recently worsening. Her doctors say she needs another heart surgery (another triple by pass) but are not sure she will make it out alive if she has one. YesTheory, if you're looking for someone to help, I don't think you will ever find anyone more deserving than her. She has supported me, my siblings, and my single mother since I was born and has always put our needs before hers.
