GameBlast16 has come to a close, and we've just about recovered from an unforgettable 24 hours of gunge-drenched charity live-streaming mayhem.
Your donations of Bonds and in-game wealth during the live stream exceeded $100,000, but it didn't stop there. You kept giving over the course of the weekend: Twitch streamers organising in-game donations, clans clubbing together to help, generous individuals donating via JustGiving and bidding furiously on our charity eBay auctions.
Now the final totals are totted up, and we're thrilled to announce that the RuneScape community has raised over $150,000 for SpecialEffect.
That's a staggering amount, and it's going to make a tremendous difference – helping SpecialEffect with their excellent work, bringing fun and inclusion to people with physical disabilities through video games.
Here are some fun facts from the weekend:
- 1200 litres of gunge used to dunk our hapless JMods and guests
- 19 JMods and players gunged live on stream
- Over £12,000 (approx $16,800) raised from our charity auction
- Devastates was the highest GP donator, giving over 5.035 billion (worth over $1600!)
- Juxta was the top Bond donator, giving 501 Bonds (over $2500's worth). 311 came in a close second with 500 Bonds.
We can't thank you enough for your generosity, enthusiasm and passion. Stay awesome!
