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.

Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has responded to Smash Bros pro Juan ‘Hungrybox’ Debiedma’s challenge of a game after the streamer had a few issues with the iconic Nintendo title. 

Just like plenty of Twitch’s other top streamers, xQc isn’t tied to one game. Sure, his fans would love to see him grinding Overwatch again, but the Canadian likes to dabble in other titles during his streams. 

Most recently, some fans got their wish as the former Overwatch League star decided to have a go at playing Super Smash Bros Ultimate online against other players. However, it didn’t work out all that well for xQc. 

The Canadian streamer let loose on his opponent, the connection, and how “trash” Smash is after a few issues with lag. However, Hungrybox wants to give him a helping hand and get xQc back playing Smash.

Hungrybox is considered one of the “Five Gods” of Smash.

After xQc started playing Smash during his November 27 stream, Hungrybox quickly floated a challenge out on Twitter. “@xQc let’s play smash this week,” he posted, sparking excitement from fans who wanted to see the pair go head-to-head. 

Though, xQc didn’t respond as quickly as some may have liked, taking a few hours to get back to the Smash star. 

When he did, however, he was seeking Hungrybox’s help rather than hitting him with some trash talk about a potential match. “You better teach me how to not get rolled by bottom 1% players,” the former Overwatch star replied. 

Seeing the pair join forces on one stream will, no doubt, delight fans of both – especially if Hungrybox is able to coach xQc up and turn him into a solid Smash player. 

Who knows, we might even see xQc ultimately take on Tyler1 after he managed to impress a number of Smash players with his performance against Hungrybox’s fellow pro MKLeo.
