"Autism awareness is such a personal cause for my family and me. It is inspiring to team up with Jimmy and Robert and create this unprecedented opportunity to bring together traditional entertainment stars with some of the world's biggest YouTube creators," Rober, whose son is autistic, said in a statement.
