Last year when Twitch announced they had collectively raised $11.1 million in 2014, we thought that total would never be beaten. But in 2015 we learnt one major lesson: Never underestimate the gaming community.
Twitch announced on their official blog that over the past 12 months that their various charity campaigns had been combined to generate more than $17 million, which was then donated to over 55 charitable organisations.
Below is a statement from the blog listing all of the most significant campaigns.
One of the main drives still running until the end of 2015 is YogsCast’s Jingle Jam which currently stands at $768,682.70, so you can expect Twitch’s current total to increase a bit more before the end of the year.
