Social Media Now a Charitable Platform

Monytize is changing the way online retailers do their respective businesses as it capitalizes on the multi-billion dollar entertainment industry by transforming social media users into social media monetizers. To put it simply, the Monytize app is the world’s first philanthropic social media platform that is revolutionizing the world one cause, brand, goal, and mission at a time.

On September 1st, 2022, the Monytizeapp began its official global BETA launch giving international influencers, celebrities, churches, universities, charities, schools, brands, and professional athletes the opportunity to change the way people use and perceive social media.

Like other platforms, Monytize allows its users to socialize, network, and share their content like photos and videos online. It also offers music, movies, and video games. What sets it apart from other apps in the digital space is that it is invite only and pays everyone when content is purchased.

Unlike other entertainment options, Monytize is redefining what online platforms should be. In the past, entertainment streamers have spent over $400 billion on music, movies, and video games each year. The profit all goes back to the developers but with Monytize users can earn a passive income. This game-changing platform is donating 20% of its earnings to charities, schools, hospitals, churches, and other nonprofit organizations around the world.

Monytize’s philanthropic approach to social media generates user satisfaction because it’s a platform that transforms entertainment spending into a champion for worthy causes. Especially, causes that are essential in achieving a bigger picture. For example, Monytize has partnered with Social Wireless, a company in South Africa. Social Wireless offers free internet services in Johannesburg. By partnering together, Social Wireless and Monytize are now offering social media, movies, music, and games that can generate a passive income for South African not only Monytizer members but for the entire country.

Monytize presents a wholesome perception for the entertainment industry and enhances it as a tool for creating a positive legacy. It’s truly a platform where users can give to others while earning passive income for themselves. While joining the platform is free of cost, the returns for signing up are life-changing when users receive their Monytize Visa debit card.

The Monytizeapp is continually adding to its available content to offer the same variety as its competitors like iTunes, Redbox, Netflix, and Spotify. But while such platforms require monthly subscriptions, Monytize separates itself by being the first to redistribute wealth back to the community. Currently, Monytize is in the market for distribution deals for original movie content from movie directors, original music content from music producers, original content from video game developers, and authors for eBook distribution.

Founded by the serial entrepreneur Terrell Samuels, Monytize will genuinely succeed in the industry. After 14 years of thorough conceptualization and planning, Terrell launched Monytize to leave a lasting legacy. The CEO is not a novice when it comes to the entertainment industry. He is recognized by the Napoleon Hill Foundation as the executive producer of Millionaire Awaken Your Secret. The documentary movie is based on the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

On top of producing movies, Terrell had previously carried the role of vice president of business development with In Season Talent. This company handles over 100 celebrities. Additionally, Terrell also took pivotal roles in Creanspeak Production, the production house that created some of the biggest hits such as Black Irish, Once Was Lost, and Prey for Rock and Roll.

Terrell is also known in the medical industry as an instrumental part of the marketing efforts to put together a surgery center, medical spa, and cancer treatment center with other medical professionals. Taking his expertise in the entertainment industry and the medical field, the entrepreneur then built The Marketing Doctor (The MD). Today, he is using his years of experience to propel Monytize as a beacon of the future.

When asked what motivated Terrell to build Monytize, Terrell said: “It’s so that every person has an opportunity to be the change they want to be in their home communities as well as the world.” The platform empowers its users in a way that other sites do not. There’s no other social platform providing this type of charitable twist combined with the multibillion-dollar entertainment industry.

Review: ‘Freedom on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom’ – A Film Masterpiece by Evgeny Afineevsky

Directed by Evgeny Afineevsky, ‘Freedom on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom’ is a documentary that illustrates the brutal and unfiltered human cost of the conflict in Ukraine. Charting the birth of the conflict from the Maidan Revolution of 2014, the documentary immortalizes the steadfastness of the Ukrainian peoples whilst showcasing the multitude of negative economic, sociological and psychological effects of the war on the population. The film premiered recently at the 79th annual Venice International Film Festival and subsequently the Toronto International Film Festival

Not for the faint of heart, Freedom on Fire depicts war in its most gruesome and devastating way. From air raid sirens that shatter tranquility to scores of civilians escaping war zones with nothing but their backpacks, the film does not shy away from showing the damage done to the human psyche. Bodies litter the streets, children cry as bombs fall and entire cities are turned to ruin. Footage of children buried under rubble and pregnant women dying due to unavailability of healthcare in the warzone devastate the soul as Afineevsky makes sure to convey the horrible realities of war to everyone across the globe. 

The carnage, the sorrow and the sheer destruction depicted has a purpose. Director Evgeny Afineevsky not only wants to show audiences worldwide the conflict from the perspective of civilians but wants the audience to confront the bitter truth of war. Mainstream media and to a lesser extent, social media, shy away from this reality, choosing to censor the pain and suffering inflicted. Afineevsky, on the other hand, realizes that one cannot abhor war without looking at its consequences directly in the eye. The clips of interviews with civilians are interspersed with actual footage of the battles, creating a parallel as to how war directly destroys the very fabric of civilian life. 

While the film may have benefited immensely from an expanded dive into the geopolitical factors that brought about and continue to fan flames of the crisis, the film chooses to focus on civilian impact and thereby becomes a celebration of humanity’s perseverance in face of towering odds. The Ukrainian people are depicted as bruised but not defeated as they vow to protect and reclaim each inch of their country in face of the Russian invasion. Their high spirits collide with the climbing death toll of the war as bodies are shown littering the streets in the wake of pitched battles between opposing forces. 

Freedom on Fire is therefore a beast of a film. Not only does it succeed in portraying the horrible reality of war, the film also depicts with earnestness and truth the human cost of the ordeal. As the conflict mutates every day, Freedom on Fire showcases an aspect of the war that remains constant: that of human suffering and constant misery. War is hell and there are no victors in it, only victims. Evgeny Afineevsky has therefore made a masterful documentary, one that will resonate well with the discourse of the war effort as the Russian Invasion of Ukraine enters its sixth month and the conflict shows no signs of abating any time soon. 

When discussing recent film premieres for ‘Freedom on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom’, Afineevsky recalled that at the Q & A sessions, he usually gets the same question: “What should we do?” To this question, the filmmaker encourages people to act and be united in this conflict.  

“I am always trying to use my platform as a filmmaker to bring the spotlight on the issue and the voices that need to be heard. I am putting my audience in a place where I have been, to feel the pain, to feel the inspiration, the resilience and great human spirit of the Ukrainians,” he said.

Afineevsky is a true force for good by not only advocating for positive change the film industry, but the world.

The Hope’s Final Voyage and the Strange Story of Antarctica’s Ghosts

 Ernest Shackleton’s ship, the Endurance, became entrenched in the Weddell Sea, ice pack and sank. There are various theories about what happened that day, from the crew being too inexperienced and shocked by the ice to their inexperience with using an ice-strengthened hull. Either way, 1128 miles away, the explorer Robert Falcon Scott had just reached the South Pole on his trip to Antarctica, unaware that anything had happened to his archenemy, Shackleton.


What happened to the Endurance, and when?


The Endurance was a retired NASA space shuttle that sank off the coast of California in 2003. The spacecraft, scheduled to be decommissioned and sent to the Smithsonian Institution, disintegrated mid-air and sank after losing power due to a failed robotic arm. Since then, much has been shrouded in mystery surrounding what happened to the ship and its crew. In 2004, evidence emerged suggesting that a malfunction with the robotic arm may have been the cause of the crew’s deaths. However, further investigation has yet to provide proof of this theory. Some believe that Malden Air Traffic Control may be responsible for directing the crew toward an area where they were likely hit by lightning. In contrast, others suggest a virus or cyberattack caused their demise. Whatever the cause, there is growing worry that more information about what happened to the Endurance will never be revealed.


The reasons for its sinking


As the story goes, Endurance set sail on its maiden voyage in 1973 with a crew of just 27 people. The ship was never meant to make it more than a few hundred miles from port, but Endurance soon found itself battling terrible conditions and high seas.


The ship’s captain, David Hempleman-Adams, was famously quoted as saying, “No one died because they went down with the ship – everyone died because they left the ship.” Though the ship arguably suffered from poor management throughout its life, it’s fair to say that deteriorating conditions were primarily to blame for its eventual demise.


On November 12, 2017, after more than 40 years at sea, Endurance finally sank following an unprecedented and unusually severe storm. With no lifeboats or helicopters available to rescue passengers, many of whom were reportedly stranded for days on board, the sinking is now widely regarded as one of the worst maritime disasters in history.


How is her wreck significant?


The Endurance was a British ship that sank in the South Atlantic Ocean on March 27, 1916, after running into an iceberg. The sinking of the Endurance is one of the deadliest maritime disasters in history, with 1,500 people killed.


The sinking of the Endurance was significant because it demonstrated the extreme danger of sailing in the South Atlantic Ocean then. The vessel ran into an iceberg just days after leaving port, and despite efforts by both crew and passengers to save her, she capsized and sank within 12 hours. This crash course in maritime disaster served as a wake-up call to sailors and captains everywhere and led to several reforms in marine safety procedures.


The legacy she left and what is being done with the wreck today.


The Endurance, the ship that sank after being rammed by the Titanic in 1912, has been subject to much speculation and mystery. The wreckage was found by a group of sailors in 1975 and has since remained largely untouched and unexplored. In November 2017, a team of divers led by Ricardo Palma reached the site and managed to penetrate the sea floor. They found photographic evidence of crew members alive after the collision. The details of what happened next are still unknown. 


Despite this discovery, little progress has been made toward conserving or memorializing the wreck. The expedition team is currently working on a documentary. About their findings and hopes to share it with the public in 2022. There are also talks of creating an underwater museum at the site, but no final decisions have yet been made. Regardless of what happens next with the wreck, it remains an eerie reminder of one of maritime history’s most tragic accidents.


In 1984, the wreck was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. This year, it was also added to the United States National Historic Landmarks list. Its sinking is still debated by maritime experts and conspiracy theorists alike.


Since its discovery in 1984, the Endurance has undergone a lengthy restoration process. The wreck is now accessible to divers via a guided tour operated by Apex Diving Services. 


The expedition company specialized in salvaging and exploring. Wrecks discovered an impressive array of treasures when they explored their latest find–including cannons. Anchors, navigational instruments, food supplies, clothing and even a baby’s carriage! They plan to return next year with even more artifacts from this fascinating piece of maritime history.




The Endurance is a veteran of space exploration, having been in service for over two decades. But recently, something has gone wrong with the ship. Scientists are not sure what it is, but they know that the Endurance is not performing as it should be.


This blog is dedicated to informing the public of what’s been happening with Endurance. Originally designed as a research vessel. The Endurance has been mired in controversy since it was seized last year by the Venezuelan navy. The ship has been accused of smuggling paramilitary and drug-related contraband. 


Following the seizure, various authorities launched numerous investigations into the vessel’s activities. However, no concrete evidence linking the Endurance to any illegalities has yet surfaced. To clear its name, Endurance released a lengthy statement detailing its innocence and pledging to cooperate with investigations. 


Nevertheless, much of the public. Remains skeptical of Endurance’s claims and calls for further proof of its innocence have continued to grow. This blog will continue to provide updates. What’s happening with this mysterious ship and whether or not it will be headed for justice.




It’s been a while since we’ve checked in with the Endurance, and as you’ll soon find out, things have not been going well. As the Endurance crew begins to experience unusual and damaging behavior from their shipmates, they are forced to confront that something – or someone – is infecting them. Can the team discover what’s happening before it eradicates them?
