deadmau5 and fans raise $15,000 for Children’s Miracle Network on Twitch stream
Legendary producer Joel Zimmerman, known by his deadmau5 stage name, has started a series called “Mau5trap Mondays” on streaming site Twitch where fans can tune in to hear the producer go through submitted music — all while raising money for a good cause.
During the stream, users submitted their songs and donated money, which Zimmerman matched if the donation was more than $100. This proved to be hugely successful on Nov. 13, as the fans and Zimmerman raised $15,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ Extra Life program.
Zimmerman notes toward the end of the stream that the series will continue every Monday, giving fans a shot at the iconic artist listening to and critiquing their music, along with donating money to a good cause.
