YouTube star raises $130,000 for Human Rights Equality Campaign

Markiplier, a Californian YouTube star, has raised $130,000 for the Human Rights Equality Campaign after appealing to his followers to donate.

Announcing its launch at the start of the week, Markiplier said in a statement: "Today we stand by our LGBTQ+ friends to ensure equality for everyone! Please help us raise $100,000 for the Human Rights Campaign to ensure the future stays bright and open for all!".

He launched his GoFundMe page on Monday asking his 16million+ followers to support the cause and, in just over two days, he has smashed the target. 

Last December, Forbes placed Markiplier in seventh place in its list of 2016’s top earning YouTube stars.
