The annual Yogscast Jingle Jam charity drive has come to a close, raising £3.3 million ($4.4 million) for various causes.
The 2021 Jingle Jam began on December 1 and saw the company's roster of content creators stream every day on its main Twitch channel throughout the month.
The company also raised funds with its annual bundle of games, offering a collection of titles worth over £650 for just £35.
Now in its 10th year, the Jingle Jam event has raised over £18.3 million ($24.9 million) for several different charities, spanning LGBTQIA+ issues, environmentalism and sustainability to cancer research and medical care.
"After a difficult year for many it was really nice to end it on an emotional high," said Yogscast co-founder Lewis Brindley. "I'd like to give a heartfelt thanks to everyone who gave their time, passion, expertise and games to make this such a huge success. We can't wait to see how these charitable projects evolve over 2022 and benefit those who are in need."
