The money is for Gamers Outreach, a charity that helps children through the healingprocess by providing gaming experiences in hospitals.

“I was honoured to visit Seattle Children’s Hospital to see first-hand all of the incredible work that Gamers Outreach does,” Said Gang-Seok Kim, CEO of Bluehole Inc. “Helping create new video game kiosks is one small way to show how much we appreciate the dedication and kindness that the staff at Seattle’s Children’s Hospital and the team at Gamers Outreach puts forth every day.”

The Charity Invitational took place on May 4 and included 128 Twitch streamers all battling it out and raising cash for the cause. Donations will go towards Gamers Outreach providing portable gaming kiosks to sick children across the US.
