Ninja Appears on The Ellen Degeneres Show Announcing Charity Stream for The Ellen Fund
Ninja is raising money for charity later this month.
Ellen DeGeneres may have dipped her toes into Fortnite when she played with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins back in October. However, it appears she’s not done yet as she’s brought Ninja back to her show so the popular streamer can announce a special live stream with plans to raise money.
Ninja has more or less been the face of Fortnite in the streaming/YouTube world, and his success and popularity have not gone unnoticed. He made it onto the cover of ESPN being famed as a “legend” and has played with both Ellen and Drake on separate occasions. Last month he announced that he’s going to be hosting a 24-hour live stream directly from Times Square on New Year’s Eve. Here’s that video in case you missed it.

Not only that but the guy was apparently one of this years popular Halloween costumes. But anyway, onto the news at hand, I just find it fascinating how Ninja has grown so much.
Talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres has invited Ninja once again onto her talk show through a live video feed, where he announced that he’ll be running a special live stream later this month. He’ll be raising money for The Ellen Fund, otherwise known as ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund’.
“The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund was established to support global conservation efforts for critically endangered species.” – The Ellen Fund Statement
In the video that you can find at the bottom of this post, Ninja details that the minimum usually raised by doing his live streams is about $50,000. Ellen also appears to still be flummoxed by how he makes so much money from playing Fortnite and jokingly asks him how much money he’s made since they last spoke. Ninja says he’ll text her then laughs as we all sit there looking at our screen realizing that we don’t have Ellen in our phone contacts.
Ninja will be streaming on his Twitch channel on November 23 to raise money for The Ellen Fund.
