Worlds collided as Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek and Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson, two of the biggest personalities on Twitch and YouTube respectively, teamed up to donate over $100,000 to charity.

MrBeast is well known in the YouTube and Twitch community as the guy who gives large amounts of money to small streamers – but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any left for the big streamers too.

In a video that came out on April 4, MrBeast showed just how he gave away $100,000, which was put up by Apex Legends, to shroud that would then be given to a charity of his choice.

Fans were able to get a sneak peek of sorts to this video when MrBeast popped up during shroud’s stream in March. 

When that happened, there was a bug that CS:GO pro cash in exchange for eliminations. 

“We’ll do $2000 per kill,” MrBeast told shroud. “It’s all Apex’s money, so it doesn’t matter to me!”

Shroud mentioned that he didn’t have a specific charity he wanted to support, but did want the money to go to veterans. MrBeast revealed he donated $32,000 to the Wounded Warriors Project.

Shroud (Twitter)Shroud didn’t let an elbow injury stop him from securing money for charity.

MrBeast bumped up the money per kill to $5,000 in a later match where shroud was on pace to earn at least $30,000 before he was booted from the match. 


Shroud could only control the mouse

Eventually, MrBeast raised the stakes to $10,000 per kill, but with a twist – shroud was controlling the mouse while MrBeast controlled the keyboard.

Miraculously, the duo was able to secure seven kills which resulted in $70,000 to St. Judes Children Hospital.

In on final matchup that would earn money for an animal shelter, shroud was again controlling only the mouse for $5,000 a kill. He was able to secure two kills resulting in a $10,000 donation to the worthy cause.

In total, $112,000 was raised for three different charities through a variety of Apex Legends challenges, while fans of the two personalities got to see them work together for a greater good.
