Awesome Games Done Quick tops $1 million in last 24 hours

Awesome Games Done Quick, a charity marathon of video game speedruns that donates money raised to the Prevent Cancer nonprofit group, concluded its weeklong streaming session yesterday on what you might call "a high note:" a $100,000 surge during the group's final game pushed the donated total to more than $1 million - $1,007,136 to be specific.

Some other stats, according to the AGDQ website (which is still being updated and refreshed): There were 27,171 donations, spread across 17,902 donors. These numbers would make the average donation amount $37, which is kind of crazy when you think about it - for roughly the price of a season of Breaking Bad per person, AGDQ raised more than $1 million for cancer research. Good job, Internet.

[Thanks, Jonathan!]
