“I’m lucky enough to be in a situation where I can use my artwork and name for many great causes, and often donate signed prints, and attend charity events. I’m also an ambassador for the charity ‘BulliesOut’, as this is a subject very close to my heart due to my own experience growing up, along with becoming the Youth Ambassador for Pride Cymru, which see's me often given talks and presenting events with them. I'm a big supporter of the work done by The Prince's Trust and hope to continue my work with them. I’m also heavily involved in the fundraising event ‘The Great Roath Bake Off’ and its sister events around Cardiff with organiser Wayne Courtney. These mostly raise funds for the A6 Acute stroke ward in Cardiff’s Heath hospital.”

Due to the global success of the first photography series "RED HOT 100", it's book and calendar, photographer/creator Thomas Knights asked Nathan to model for the 2nd series and book. The proceeds go to anti bullying charities as the aim is to change the stereotype and rebrand the image of Redheads. This is something that's close to Nathan's heart as it was a large reason for his bullying throughout his teenage years. Nathan now states "I used to be bullied for being ginger, gay, nerdy and creative. These are now things I love most about myself and have made me who I am today. I just wish i could've known that back then"

Nathan has participated in a number of different activities for charity including Zip Wiring off the top of Cardiff's St David's Hotel, spending the night in a prison cell, completing fun runs & shaving off all his long curly hair for Macmillan Cancer. Nathan also took part on the first ever YouTube live Stand Up To Cancer 12 hour event with other YouTuber's such as Joe Sugg & Caspar Lee, who Nathan painted using coffee during the event and auctioned live. Overall the day raised over £120,000. He has also displayed, created and donated artwork for auction to for many charities including some of the ones listed below.
