YouTuber Hbomberguy's Donkey Kong 64 marathon raised over $340,000 for trans youth

January 21, 2019 1 min read

This past weekend, British YouTuber Hbomberguy sat down in front of Rare's 1999 Nintendo 64 release Donkey Kong 64 with two goals. Firstly, to reach 101% completion - a feat which had eluded him since childhood - and secondly, to raise money for trans youth rights group Mermaids. With the help of activist CaseyExplosion and huge support from the LGBTQ community, the stream was an astounding success.

Streaming his endeavours on Twitch, Hbomberguy (real name Harry Brewis) got off to an incredible start. With initial hopes of hitting the $3,000 USD mark, Hbomberguy proceeded to pull in over $200,000 within the first 40 hours. By the time Brewis flicked the off switch (some 57 hours after the start of his run) and all of the late donations were tabulated, the total raised stands at an incredible $340,000 USD.
