Twitch has done double good.

First off, Extra Life was a success. The annual charity to raise money for Children's Miracle Network had 7,500 Twitch participants raising $1.22 million for the cause. Awesome.

A pop-up store was put together to help raise funds for the Red Cross to benefit Typhoon relief efforts, with 100 pervent of Twitch's profits going to the cause. They say that 6,300 limited edition shirts pulled in $82,751. Twitch rounded it up to $90,000 for Red Cross.
