Gamers Unite For 60+ Hour Charity Live Stream Event 3/27/15
After Markiplier's Hospitalization, Community Rallies To Ensure Monthly Fund Raising
By: Markiplite's Hero Charity Live Stream
Markiplier himself has been a rising star in the Youtube and gaming community. Being the 71st most subscribed Youtube channel with over 1.77 billion views keeps a man busy. Recently he's been invited to the visit the White House with several other youtubers and co-hosted the SXSW Gaming Awards, but through it all he has continued to keep up with his 2 video a day release schedule as well as his live streams for various charities. It's this dedication to his fan base and his philanthropy over the years that has inspired his community to step up with this event while he's recovering from surgery.
"Mark has gone on record saying 'I'm only here because of you' and so many people themselves would say that they wouldn't be here without Mark.” said Joshua "Farronox" Dunn, a Youtuber, Live Streamer, & Philanthropist live streaming for the event “I myself aspire so much to be a person like Mark, and envy his achievement. I can only hope that we can do as much good as he has done for us, his community, and for the lives his own charity efforts have touched."
There is a lot of excitement for the live stream and that wouldn't be possible without the active following that has rallied around Markiplier.
“This community is incredible,”
