Game Theorist Raises $3 Million in one day for St. Jude


The season of giving has kicked off and The Game Theorists have started off strong with a massive collaborative charity event on Giving Tuesday that spent over 10 hours raising money for cancer research and treatment. Throughout the all-day livestream event, multiple YouTubers and content creators raised millions of dollars for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the foundation’s efforts in the fight against childhood cancer.

Over the 10-hour event hosted on The Game Theorists’ channel, known for the gaming analysis show Game Theory, Matthew “MatPat” Patrick and his wife and co-host Stephanie Patrick raised a ton of money for St. Jude. This marks the second time that The Game Theorists have hosted a fundraiser for the organization, as the channel’s small crew worked alongside YouTube in 2019 to pull off a similar event.

In total, The Game Theorists raised $3 million for St. Jude throughout the livestream event, beating their previous record from 2019 that had reached $1.3 million for charity. YouTubers from all over the country joined in as well, both in-person and virtually, including prominent names like MrBeast, Markiplier, Game Grumps, Kyle Hill, Mark Rober, and dozens of other content creators. The entertainment for the show consisted mostly of gaming content roughly related to The Game Theorists and the guests, like a high IQ matchup of players for Among Us and a gaming trivia show.
