Last week, horror YouTuber Dawko decided that he’d do something to help sick kids, holding a Five Nights at Freddy’s stream to raise money for St Judes. He ended up doing far more than he’d planned, however, after the game’s creator Scott Cawthon dropped in on his stream.
Dawko had set a humble goal of $15,000, to go to St Judes Children’s Hospital, where it would be used to help kids with leukaemia and other cancers. He planned to play all three of the Five Nights at Freddy’s games, as part of a marathon “Five Nights at St Judes” livestream. Fellow horror developers had planned to drop in, to chat and share unreleased gameplay footage, and Five Nights at Freddy’s developer Scott Cawthon had been invited to watch.
However, Cawthon did more than just watch, donating chunks of money that quickly added up to $249,999.
