A Bronx man has used his humor to gain thousands of followers on Instagram, and he is now seeking to help others.

Michael Castanos, also known as The Loopy Blogger, says he has always enjoyed making people laugh.

The Norwood native started posting videos on Twitter in 2009, but has since expanded to more social media platforms. His posts revolve around playing off characters he meets in the borough.

He has even recruited well-known Reggaeton stars like Nicky Jam for his videos, but says he also wants to make a difference.

Castanos says he is using his following to help raise money for people in Mexico and Puerto Rico.
