Gamer Raises $920,343.98 for St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital During Four Hour Livestream

Published

on

Popular gamer Ben “Dr. Lupo” Lupo raised $920,343.98 for St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in just four and a half hours while live-streaming on Twitch.

In an awesome moment of kindness and generousity from the gaming community on Sunday, Lupo, who is best known for playing Fortnite, averaged $3,400 in donations for the children’s charity for every minute of his stream.

The St. Jude fundraiser was part of an effort for GuardianCon, a gaming convention in Orlando next week. In another fundraising stream leading up to the event, Destiny developer and streamer “Bungie” raised $400,000 in four hours.

GuardianCon’s goal was to raise $3 million ahead of the event, but they managed to hit $3.7 million.

Forbes reports that there have been multiple streamers doing four hour fundraising blocks and many of them have included incentives. Lupo’s included having “his son play Fortnite (at $350,000) and his wife play Resident Evil ($500,000). The $1 million super stretch goal was to get him to Pon Pon, Ninja’s signature dance, on stream, something he’s never done.”

Lupo even donated $50,000 to the fundraiser himself.

“Thank you so much, to every single person that’s donated,” Lupo said at the end of his stream, per a report from ComicBook.com. “To every single person that’s supported St. Jude. To every single person that’s gonna be at Guardian Con. To every single person that freakin’ loves gaming. And most importantly, from top to bottom, St. Jude.”

    I do accept as true with all the ideas you’ve introduced for
    your post. They’re very convincing and can definitely work.
    Still, the posts are too brief for novices. May you please prolong them a little from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Bless you!

    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers
    and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.

    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Although it’s important to select a topic that interests you, you can’t simply go by that because some topics aren’t very marketable.

Woman Paints Over Black Lives Matter Mural in NYC, Shouts ‘Bill de Blasio Doesn’t Care About Black People!’

De Blasio is planning to paint four more of the ridiculous murals throughout the city.

Published

on

The state-sanctioned Black Lives Matter mural outside Trump Tower in New York City has been vandalized by a protester for the third time since it was painted.

A black woman covered multiple letters of the bright yellow eyesore with multiple gallons of black paint while shouting “Refund the Police” and “Bill de Blasio doesn’t care about black people!”

The woman urged people to find Jesus while she worked, attempting to cover as much as she could before being detained and arrested.

The mural was also vandalized the previous day by four protesters who oppose the Marxist political message painted in the street by the mayor. The brave activists shouted “Blue Lives Matter” and “All Lives Matter” as they painted over the city-approved vandalism.

Onlookers shouted at them hysterically as they did it.

NBC New York reports “the alleged vandals threw the paint in what appeared to be a coordinated effort involving about 10 people around 4 p.m. Friday. There were plans going around on social media with a group of people discussing doing the stunt.”

On Monday, the mural was splattered with red paint.

Unlike the rioters and looters that took over his city recently, he has made it a priority to arrest those who dare to vandalize it. In fact, Mayor de Blasio has seemingly been more concerned with protecting the tacky painting than about the rising crime in the city since he tied the hands of his police force.

De Blasio is planning to paint four more of the ridiculous murals throughout the city.

War on Christianity: Virgin Mary Statue Honoring WWII Servicemen Lit on Fire in Massachusetts

Imagine if this was happening to any other religion.

Published

on

Following three churches being lit ablaze across the US over the weekend, a statue of the Virgin Mary honoring fallen WWII soldiers has been lit on fire in Massachusetts.

The statue at St. Peter Parish in Dorchester was found charred around 10 p.m. Saturday.

“Fire investigators say it appears someone set fire to plastic flowers that were in the hands of the statue, which caused the face and upper body of the statue to be burned,” NBC Boston reports. “The charred statue startled parishioners on Sunday, with one man saying he was ‘very disturbed’ by the incident.”

“This is ridiculous,” a woman added. “This needs to stop.”

St. Peter Parish’s Pastor Currie said he would like to help the person who did this and believes that they are a “troubled soul.”

“This is obviously someone disturbed, someone who has a lot of trouble, a troubled soul,” he said. “But I know our Lady in Heaven is looking down on the soul, or whoever it might’ve been, and saying, ‘I love you! If you need help, come get help. We’re here for you.'”

The Boston Police are asking anyone with information on the incident to contact them at 617-343-4335.

Over the weekend, three churches were burned across the nation.

A fire destroyed Faith Tabernacle Pentecostal Church in Elkmont, Alabama Friday night.

On Saturday a man drove into a church in Ocala, Florida, before lighting it on fire.

Next, a fire destroyed the roof of 249-Year-Old San Gabriel Mission Church in California.

Had these been places of worship for any other religion, it would have been leading the news cycle for at least a week.

Communist Hammer and Sickle Painted on North Carolina WWII Memorial

The names on the memorial “are veterans and deserve the honor, respect, and dignity.”

Published

on

The Communist hammer and sickle symbol was spray painted on a North Carolina World War II Memorial over the weekend.

The memorial in the Evergreen Cemetery in Charlotte honors over 500 people from the county who died in the war.

The vandals also wrote “Glory to the day of heroism June 19, 1986,” a likely reference to the violent Communist Party of Peru.

“On June 18, 1986, the Shining Path began to protest the Peruvian government’s use of torture on its members and their movement to different prisons,” the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported when another statue was vandalized with the same message in May. “Although the Peruvian government at first tried to negotiate with the Shining Path, the members refused, he said, and the government sent troops into the prisons the next day — bombing two facilities and executing inmates who were in the Shining Path.”

Over 200 people were killed.

“That day immediately began to be called ‘The Day of Heroism.’”

Fox News reports that a portion of the WWII monument that read, “Dedicated to the memory of the Mecklenburg heroes of World War II who made the supreme sacrifice that you might live in liberty, freedom and peace,” was also covered in yellow paint.

Air Force veteran Wayne White gathered friends to help clean the memorial after seeing that it was defaced on social media. He told Fox 17 that the names on the memorial “are veterans and deserve the honor, respect, and dignity.”
