Ninja Donates Big Money To Charity Stream For Medical Research

When you make a lot of money it’s only fair to give a little back, and that’s just what streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has done in support of medical research.

During a French gaming charity stream known as Z Event, Ninja surprised viewers with a very generous donation of €26,000 (roughly $29,000 USD), pushing Z Event over its donation goal.

What a move. Well done, Ninja!

Z Event ran from September 20 – 23, and featured 55 streamers all gaming to help raise money for Institut Pasteur, a French non-profit organisation which focuses on research and vaccines for various medical diseases.

Over 500,000 viewers tuned in to watch Z Event at its peak, and even French president Emmanuel Macron got involved in the celebration [via Dexerto].

Taking to Twitter to celebrate the event, the president said: “55 French gamers have just raised over a weekend more than 3 million euros for the benefit of the Pasteur Institute. You are inspiring and you show us that anything is possible to support a cause for which we believe. well done #ZEvent2019 !”

Ninja’s donation helped push the figure raised up to its goal of €3 million. Find everything you need to know about Z Event over on Twitter right here.

Social media celebrated the occasion, with hundreds of people praising Ninja for the selfless good deed.

Let’s face it: Ninja can afford to give a little here and there. The streamer built a brand after becoming one of the most recognisable Fortnite gamers on the planet, and even appeared on the cover of ESPN.

Recently, Ninja made the jump from Twitch to Mixer, a Microsoft-owned streaming platform which has now seen a huge increase in interest following the deal.

We love to see people giving back to the community. Nice job, Ninja!
