Saqib ‘LIRIK’ Zahid punished himself for being late to his stream by donating 100 subscriptions to the Awesome Games Done Quick Twitch channel.

Awesome Games Done Quick is a time when video game speedrunners get together and show off their talents in a certain games, while also raising a lot of money for charity.

Many streamers like to donate to the event as the money goes towards a good cause, and they get to see some of the best players in the world speedrun a certain title.

LIRIK/TwitchLIRIK had a lot of gifted subs to give away.

What makes this event even more exciting to watch is you never know exactly what game you’re going to see as it can be anything from Sonic and Knuckles, to Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace speedruns.

LIRIK, who may or may not have been watching AGDQ before his stream, ended up being six minutes late to his own. As a punishment for this, he decided to gift 60 subs to the charity, but decided to bump it up to 100 gifted subs instead.

“60 gifted subs to GDQ for six minutes late,” he said before deciding to bump it up. “I like that idea, I like it, let’s make it 100.”

That’s certainly quite the nice gesture as 100 gifted subs would equal $500 out of his own pocket, provided they are all Tier 1 subscriptions.

Considering the size of LIRIK’s channel, he’ll likely make all of his money back in the course of one broadcast, but it’s still extremely generous for him to do what he did.

Despite that, $500 is a good chunk of cash so if he wants to keep his bank account full, he’ll be sure to make sure he’s on time to the rest of his streams in the future.

In the meantime, you can donate to the stream yourself just by visiting the website and clicking the donation button. Make sure you have the stream open as well as you can even get a message you send read out loud.

All of the money donated will be going towards the Prevent Cancer Foundation, so if that’s something you’re passionate about, you might want to consider a donation of some sort.

This isn’t the only charity raising money for a good cause either. As you may know, Australia is currently ablaze and many streamers are stepping in to help in some way. The Click Crew managed to raise $300k AUD in an effort to help the country.

There are plenty of charitable options out there for people as we enter 2020, so perhaps you can throw a buck or two towards one of these causes.

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
