Korean Twitch streamer 'HAchubby' had an incredible wholesome reaction to her viewers raising enough money to send her to the United States. 

HAchubby is one of Korea’s most popular IRL streamers, doing everything from sitting at home and trying to impersonate Dr Disrespect to even dancing for viewers during a shift at work

As she’s cultivated a loyal viewer base, those fans who tune in on a daily basis took their opportunity to help HAchubby reach a long-time goal and leave her questioning whether or not what she was experiencing was actually real.

During her August 10 broadcast, the IRL streamer had set a goal of $7,000 to get her from Korea to the United States for Twitchcon and a trip to New York. Of course, donations filtered in and slowly helped her progress towards the target.

Yet, her viewers did not slow down - instead, they challenged each other to help HAchubby reach her final target with whatever donation they could make. As she closed in on the goal amount, the streamer became overwhelmed with emotions and began crying as well as doing her best to thank the fans.

Of course, the viewer donations weren’t finished after they hit the $7,000 goal, as they continued on. This left HAchubby even more thankful for their help as she tried to thank them but couldn’t believe what was happening.

“I really go,” she said between gasps. “I really go, this is real. This is real, I really go to TwitchCon. I can’t believe it, oh my god.” As the donations continued to pour in, the streamer had to take a step back to try and process what was happening, before needing to sit down. 

In total, HAchubby’s fans raised more than $7,350 before she closed donations as money continued to pour despite meeting the goal.

Considering she’ll be heading to TwitchCon at the end of September, fans will likely get the chance to meet their favorite IRL streamer as she heads to San Diego. Who knows, she might have even more adorable reactions to being greeted by support.
