Motivation Monday: Valheim Stream Raises Over $20 000 for Texas Disaster Relief
People have rallied for the state of Texas over the last week as they continue to struggle with the results of unpredicted cold weather. Many are still having to boil their water and others have reported huge heating bills thanks to trying to stay warm in the coldest temperatures in 30 years. Now, a group of popular gamers have come together and raised over $20 000 for the Red Cross’ Texas Disaster Relief Fund.
The campaign bio stated: “Let’s help out the thousands of Texans who are stuck in the extreme cold right now, with over 2,000 people staying in shelters on Thursday night alone. The Red Cross is supporting warming shelters with cots, blankets, volunteers, water and meals.”
Six hours after the stream started, the pot stood at $21 000. You can still donate to the Texas disaster relief stream here.
Valheim has become hugely popular since its release earlier this month because of it’s unique approach to survival and building mechanics, plus great world generation. The game is going from strength to strength, selling one million units in its first week. Now, the game’s sales stand at a whopping three million in twenty days. Iron Gate‘s devs have said they aren’t letting that success go to their heads, however, “except that maybe we can afford a bigger office now.”
