League of Legends player raises $106,000 for charity in 12 hours

League of Legends' Siv HD raises $106,000 for charity in just 12 hours

League of Legends is big... very big, with streams of the game making some big bucks for gamers. Siv HD took the opportunity to stream a League of Legends game, raising $106,000 for starving children in as little as 24 hours.

 

 

Siv started by donating $100 himself, leaving his wallet open to viewers of his stream on Twitch. He had a goal of a hefty $50,000 but obviously broke that, taking just 10 hours to hit $50,000. Donations were continuing to flow, so he upped the goal to $77,000 and continued on streaming. He reached that goal, and set another one at $100,000 saying that he would hit that goal, or continue gaming until he couldn't stay awake any longer.

He signed off and went to sleep, with the donations reaching a total tally of $106,000 in just over 12 hours of streaming.
