Over the past weekend, the 2018 edition of the Vinesauce Is HOPE charity stream took place on Twitch.

The stream featured numerous personalities from the Vinesauce streaming team, as well as Vinesauce affiliates, playing games practically non-stop over the course of three days in an effort to raise money for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF), a non-profit organization “dedicated to improving care, quality of life & survival rate of children with malignant diseases.”

When all was said and done, the Vinesauce team took to Twitter to officially announced that they had raised over $121,000 in direct donations for the PCRF over the course of the three-day event.

Shortly thereafter, the PCRF replied to the tweet, expressing their gratitude.

However, that’s not the end of it. As was mentioned in the Vinesauce team’s original tweet, the $121,000 they have collected in direct donations doesn’t even include the sales of the Vinesauce Is HOPE merchandise that was sold (via Ownaj) to raise even more money for the PCRF. In fact, at the time of writing, these sales are still being counted up.

As a point of reference, the 2017 charity stream just crossed $100,000 in direct donations, with the merchandise sales bringing the total up to over $137,000.

In other words, it’s rather safe to say that this year’s Vinesauce Is HOPE charity stream has been a major success and that the PCRF will likely benefit greatly from it.
