Post Malone Donates 200k to Charity From Video Game Stream

Rapper Post Malone recently put his love of playing video games to a good cause, as he donates over $200,000 for charity.

Gaming For A Cause

The Twelve Carat Toothache singer played Apex Legends on Twitch to raise money for Human Rights Watch, Project HOPE, United Way and The Trevor Project.

Over the course of his nine-hour Twitch stream, Malone attracted roughly 52,871 viewers. After raising more than his original goal of $50,000, he attempted to do a backflip to celebrate.

“I said that I would say I’ll attempt a backflip,” Malone said on the stream. “This floor is mad hard in here y’all. … alright, alright.”

After failing to successfully land a backflip, Malone asked his viewers to share their thoughts.

“Did I do it?” he said. “Was it close? Did it look crazy on stream at least? … honestly that was kinda crazy.”

Check out the stream below:

Malone’s final Twitch stream was a 60-person tournament on a private server on July 22nd, raising $76,026 in donations.

Post Malone raised over $196,000 in four nights with his stream and donations, including $40,000 from Respawn Entertainment. The donation from Respawn Entertainment took the total well past $200,000.

Post Malone’s Next Stream

The “White Iverson” rapper/singer is a known gamer with a significant following on Twitch. Malone is also an avid player of Magic: The Gathering. On August 4, Malone will face off against one lucky fan for a $100,000 prize. 

The “Mana Y Mana: The Post Malone Magic Battle”, will be live streamed on Whatnot in two parts. One will take place at 9pm ET/6pm PT. One lucky winner will be flown out to Los Angeles to play against Post Malone.

“We built Whatnot with the ethos of offering hands-down the best experiences for the most passionate enthusiasts, hobbyists, and collectors,” stated John Walters, Whatnot’s head of special projects. “Post Malone, both as an artist and as a person, fits perfectly into this growing and supportive community.”

“As a multi-talented artist with skills that extend beyond music — and as an avid Magic: The Gathering player and formidable opponent — we’re looking forward to seeing him battle it out live with one of our dedicated fans.”

“I absolutely love Magic: The Gathering, and I can’t wait to link up with Whatnot and battle it out with the winner,” Post Malone added.
