A 15-year-old British streamer has raised more than £5,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Averageharry was running a 12-hour stream raising money for the children’s hospital and broke down in tears after a £1,000 donation pushed him over the £4,000 mark.
“This stream has certainly been something… when I started it up, I didn’t expect this to happen. I’m so grateful to anyone who has come in and watched or even given 1 bit, that really helps.”
He was letting his mum know about the milestone and gave her a hug.
You can see that moment as it happened in the following Twitch clip, which has more than 160,000 views at the time of writing:
The moment was picked up by Reddit, where it currently sits atop the Livestream Fails subreddit with more than 5,000 upvotes.
Averageharry ended up raising more than £5,212.14 in donations by the end of the 12-hour charity stream, not including subs and bits.
He said: “This stream has certainly been something… when I started it up, I didn’t expect this to happen.
“It’s kind of bonkers. This is crazy. I’ll make the donation to Great Ormond Street on September 15th when I get paid by Twitch. I can also pay in all of the subs and bits I’ve made from the stream.
“I’m so grateful to anyone who has come in and watched, or even given 1 bit, that really helps. I appreciate all of that.”
Averageharry was playing a range of games on stream, including Minecraft, Fortnite, Marbles On Stream and more.
