Bungie raised $400,000 in just four hours as part of the annual GuardianCon Charity Marathon Stream, shattering the Destiny developer’s goal of $150,000 and breaking the event’s all-time record, but Fortnite streamer Dr. Lupo did even better.
A massive thank you to @Bungie for a MASSIVE block during the GuardianCon marathon!
@NeebsOfficial is up, let’s keep the hype going!

GuardianCon, which started as a Destiny-focused community meet-up, has evolved into “Florida’s premier gaming convention,” featuring a combination of in-person events with keynote speakers and new game previews, and a collection of Twitch streams that seek to raise money for charity.
This year, the donations will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, which focuses on treating the toughest childhood cancers and pediatric diseases.
