AUSTIN (KXAN) — In just 24 hours Rooster Teeth, a media and entertainment company, raised over $1 million for Dell Children’s Hospital.
The Rooster Teeth team was a part of Extra life, a 24-hour gaming and comedy live stream that raises money for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. During the live stream Saturday they raised almost $900,000 from fan donations alone.
The company also donated over $300,000 to bring the total to $1.2 million. In the past seven years, Rooster Teeth has raised over $6 million through the event.
The money raised has directly benefited Dell Children’s Mental Health Unit, and the mental health unit’s garden is dedicated and named after the company.
