After Technoblade's death, his community, along with other Minecraft players like Dream and TommyInnit, spent months raising money for cancer research. They were able to raise a total of $500,000, which will be donated to the Sarcoma Foundation of America. Technoblade appears to have supported the nonprofit and its goal of raising awareness of sarcoma and funding research to help patients.

The Saudi Sports for All Federation also posted a "Technoblade Tribute" on their website. The organization mourned Technoblad's recent passing, stating that he will remain in their hearts forever after his personal battle with sarcoma. He's celebrated his community's efforts to raise $500,000 over the past few months, and even presented the late Minecraft creator with an award for bravery at the 20th annual Stand Up to Sarcoma Gala last September. The Saudi Sports for All Federation concluded its honor with a message of hope for cancer patients. Donations are still open on the SFA website for those who wish to support its ongoing campaign.

In the past, Mojang Studios, the developer of Minecraft , paid homage to Technoblade by adding a bejeweled crown to a pig in the Java version's loading screen. Fans appreciated the subtle update that showed the people behind Minecraft mourning and celebrating Technoblade life.

The recent donation to the SFA is a testament to the Minecraft community's desire to keep Technoblade's legacy alive. As Minecraft continues to be one of the most popular games among gamers of all ages, fans are flocking to Dream SMP streams and YouTube videos to support fellow Technoblade members. You can also watch his past YouTube videos to see his past releases and quick contests. Technoblade is definitely an example of a young content creator who made an impact in his community even though he left very early on.
