The combined total has come from live streams throughout the year.
Sean McLoughlin’s final charity live stream of the year raised over $269,000, far surpassing the original goal of $150,000. The entirety of the money raised during the stream is going to Crisis Text Line, a US based charity that acts to support those suffering through dark moments in their lives via a text messaging support service. The charity refers to its prime drive as: “helping people move from a hot moment to a cool calm, guiding you to create a plan to stay safe and healthy”.
Thank you so much to @Jack_Septic_Eye for picking Crisis Text Line as part of his #Thankmas Charity Stream! The whole weekend we saw so much positivity and support coming out of this amazing community. Thank you to everyone who participated, in all ways big and small. #PMA https://t.co/TvjIvVIUh3

Sean also added all earnings from his merchandise during the live stream to the charitable donations, raising a further $18,000 towards the final total. He concluded the live stream by wishing viewers a merry ‘Thankmas’ and highlighted that donations are still possible through the Tiltify donation page until 17 December 2018.
I am completely blown away today and so incredibly proud and grateful. We raised over $269,000 total in 8 hours for Crisis Text Line. Thank you SO much to everyone who donated big and small and all the guests who came by! You did an amazing thing today❤️
