Monster Hunter Humble Bundle, $50K for T1D cures, second-annual #BlueHeartAwards

Scary monsters! Pretty artwork! Blue Hearts! Just six weeks remain for Season 5 fundraising and we’re kicking things into high gear. Read on for what we’ve got in store!

Monster Hunter World and Rise Saga Humble Bundle

Humble Bundle: The Monster Hunter World & Rise Saga

The hunt is on! Capcom has been an awesome partner for JDRF Game2Give, having already teamed up with us on two Humble Bundles that raised more than $209K for T1D research. Now, they’re doing it again with the Monster Hunter World & Rise Saga Bundle, running today through May 29!

If you’ve been waiting to get into the smash-hit Monster Hunter, this bundle is your golden opportunity. Monster Hunter World redefined the series when it launched in 2018, and its beloved expansion Iceborne introduced a host of awesome new beasts to hunt. Monster Hunter Rise and the Sunbreak expansion doubled-down with an emphasis on exhilarating dog-riding and wirebug-zipping mobility. Pay what you want for the deluxe versions of both of these must-play games and their expansions, and help support JDRF with your purchase!

Friday is Gamers Day during Creators for Cures—why not pick up this amazing bundle and stream some Monster Hunter for the cause?

Remember, when you buy a Humble Bundle, you can adjust your donation to max out how much of your purchase goes to JDRF. And the Monster Hunter Bundle isn’t even the only cool thing we’re doing with Humble this month! If music’s more your jam, check out the Epic Royalty-Free Music Collection: Volume 2, also supporting JDRF.

Streamer Spotlight: BeardedLegendGaming

“Where are all the diabetic streamers at?”

It was 2020, and BeardedLegend, aka Thad, decided to host his first charity stream for JDRF. Wanting to raise awareness as a type 1 diabetic himself, he decided to record a video and share it with his community to explain his connection to the cause and educate others about this autoimmune disease affecting nearly 9 million people worldwide.

A genuine and emotional storyteller, BeardedLegend went on to share the ins and outs of type 1 diabetes, how being diagnosed in his twenties changed his life, and how JDRF is playing a critical role in supporting T1D breakthroughs.

“This charity is so important because once we find a cure, it’s going to change a lot of people’s lives.”

Not only was BeardedLegend able to raise $600 during that first charity stream, but he was able to cement his legendary status in the JDRF Game2Give community too. Coming on board as a Ready Type 1 Ambassador, BeardedLegend has since hosted eight charity streams and raised nearly $2,400 for the cause!

The ultimate hypeman, ever reliable, the most supportive of his fellow T1Ds, and down for it all (baby food and hot sauce for the cause, anyone?), we still can’t believe we get to call Thad a member of the JDRF Game2Give family.
