Twitch gaming fans have helped raise over $2.7M for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital ahead of this year's GuardianCon in Tampa, Florida. Funds were raised through a charity marathon with over 190,000 people viewing game streamers on Twitch.

    Never heard of "Ninja" but kudos to him for offering to dye his hair. (I'd guess ninjas probably need to change their appearance frequently depending on their assignment)
