Post Malone has been gaming for charity on Twitch, raising $196,066.20 from his “Gaming For Love” series charity stream. He also donated $40,000 of his own money to the cause. Playing Respawn Entertainment Apex Legends, each of the four streams were linked to various charities: Human Rights Watch, Project HOPE, United Way, and The Trevor Project. The Trevor Project stream included a 60-person tournament, done so on a private server, which generated $76, 026.33 in one evening. Respawn Enterainment contributed $10,000 to each stream, so $40,000 — which Post matched. OpTic also donated $10,000. All this fundraising was housed via Tiltify. Fans can still contribute.
