There are some truly awesome causes when it comes to video games. Many have done great things for charity, raising money for all kinds of special causes. This is a common occurrence on platforms such as Twitch, where players decide to attempt such feats as 24-hour streams or giveaways for a good cause. Such good causes are being reported from the Destiny Reddit, as players are being called upon to help St.Jude Children’s research hospital.

There is a call to arms for all guardians over on Reddit, with the campaign #LittleLights aiming to aid a research hospital in need of help. Since June 22nd, a community of Destiny players has been streaming in a charity marathon to benefit St.Jude Children/s Research Hospital, with nonstop donations coming in from generous viewers and players alike. The streaming will last through to 4PM EST on June 29th, with $760,000 raised so far, topping last year’s total of $564,000.

St.Jude founder Danny Thomas praised the power of the community for helping to support such an incredible organization, which provides care for children to give them a fighting chance to live a normal and comfortable life. Thomas ended on the following statement:

We as guardians, will not fall, we will not falter, we will stand strong against the darkness because “No child should die in the dawn of life”

If you’d like to check out the stream and be a part of a fantastic cause before it concludes tomorrow, head to the GuardianCon Twitch channel for all the action.

Be nice and share!
