Gamer Raises Nearly $1 Million For St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital In Just 4.5 Hours –
Streamer Ben “DrLupo” Lupo raised $920,343.98 for St Jude Children’s Research Hospital in just 4.5 hours on Sunday.
DrLupo has raised millions of dollars for charity in the past, but yesterday’s feat was a new record for the popular gamer.
“Thank you so much, to every single person that’s donated. To every single person that’s supported St. Jude. To every single person that’s gonna be at Guardian Con. To every single person that freakin’ loves gaming. And most importantly, from top to bottom, St. Jude,” DrLupo said at the end of the stream.
The stream was part of a collaboration between DrLupo and GuardianCon – an annual, two-day event for gamers.
GuardianCon’s 2019 convention has raised a total of $3.7 million for St Jude.
