Ninja Teams Up With Ellen for Some Charity!
Last year, Fortnite emerged in the gaming industry and got everyone hooked on its addictive game-play and mesmerizing dance moves. Cashing in on the popularity, a YouTuber by the name of Ninja started doing live-streams of the game. Ellen being herself found the game intriguing. So she flew Ninja in, whose real name is Richard Tyler Blevins, to come on her show. The gamer taught her how to play Fortnite. And we got to admit, Ellen’s hilarious game play was pretty amusing. Now, the two are teaming up again but this time for charity.
On Twitter, America’s sweetheart Ellen DeGeneres told her audience about the special collaboration she’s going to have with the YouTuber Ninja for Thanksgiving. Ninja is going to be having a special charity stream on the 23rd of this month. All the money will go to The Ellen Fund. The fund was a gift from Ellen’s wife Portia to her for the purpose of conserving critically endangered species. The streaming done on Twitch often uses their platform to collect charity for important causes. Ninja explained this all to the talk-show host and hit her with the surprising news that he is going to be donating his money from a livestream to The Ellen Fund. The YouTuber thinks that he can manage to collect a minimum of $50,000.
The host expressed her gratitude to this heartfelt gesture of the popular streamer. Given Ninja’s massive popularity and 19 million subscribers, the YouTuber will probably be able to raise a lot more than the expected amount.
The live-stream will take place on the 23rd of November and the time isn’t specified yet.
