Now THIS is how you YouTube

Markiplier, golden-voiced charmer, YouTuber and all-round good dude, has once again proven that he's one of the best YouTubers the platform has ever seen. What has he done to deserve such praise? Well how does raising over $400,000 for a children's charity sound? Pretty damn good, we'd say.

Mark and his audience raised the money during a recent livestream, and easily smashed their initial goal of $200,000. This was helped in a major way by a mysterious anonymous donor who donated a whopping $200,000 in one go.

All the money raised will go to Save The Children, a charity that works in over 120 countries and reaches over 157 million children. The good work Save The Children will be able to do with over $400,000 cannot be overemphasised.

You can relive some of the magic below, and you can still donate to the charity here.
