KingBlue Twitter User Continues to Raise XRP for Charity Through His Online Efforts
Even though social media giant Twitter has been on the receiving end of a lot of criticism for its recent censorship efforts, the platform has also been put to some good use to raise money for a host of charitable organizations (primarily by a few good samaritans).
In this regard, a user by the name of “KingBlue_XRP” has been on a tear with his XRP donation drive to raise funds for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
More On The Matter
Last June, KingBlue came into the spotlight when he was able to raise a total of 21,000 XRP for the hospital. For his efforts, the folks over at St Jude tweeted out the following message:
“ Thank you for your unique effort to collect XRP for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital! We are in the process of setting up mechanisms to collect XRP and other crypto currencies from you and likeminded generous givers. Stay tuned!!”
Similarly, a couple of hours back, KingBlue released a new tweet wherein he stated that he had just received a fresh donation of 7,210 XRP from ‘@tips4dt’.
As a result of this generosity, KingBlue has now raised more than 40,000 XRP for St. Jude’s (in all).
😇🚨 ANGEL ALERT 🚨 😇
"We just had a massive donation to @StJude from an ANGEL donor!"
To our 😇@tips4dt 😇 thank you for the 7,210 XRP donation and thank you for your tremendous and generous heart!
