Players Raise $500,000 for St. Jude Children's Hospital - MMORPG.com

During a week-long Destiny charity event, players helped raise $500,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital ahead of this weekend's Destiny Community Convention (DestinyCon) set to be held in Tampa, Florida. Fans and players were able to donate to any one of the forty two streamers taking part in the week-long event and helped make this charitable donation the largest St. Jude's has ever gotten from a games-based event.

"As gamers, we've never seen anything like it," said Kevin Murray, the event coordinator. "The amount of respect and love in the community is mind-blowing. Lives have been changed and will continue to be changed because of it. Friendships, careers, marriages, et cetera. It's all happened because of this game and this community."
