Popular Twitch streamer Matthew ‘Mizkif‘ Rinaudo revealed the good that his chat had done after they helped fund a Make-A-Wish child’s visit to Disneyland.

When they aren’t spamming emotes, mocking streamers with their backseat gaming, or dropping terrorizing text-to-speech donations, Twitch viewers can rally around a cause and do some overwhelming good – even if its for someone they don’t know.

That was the case with Mizkif, as he pulled out a heart-warming charity idea to help raise funds for the Make-A-Wish foundation back in August. His chat answered the call, donated over $20,000, and helped make some dreams become a reality – with Mizkif being able to show them the good they had done for one family in particular. 

Mizkif, InstagramMizkif is a growing streamer on Twitch, with thousands tuning into his channel daily.

During his October 27 broadcast, the popular streamer took time out from his games and just chatting to show off the thank you that he had received from the family they’d helped. 

“You guys brought this kid and he was allowed to go to Disney World and he is suffering from leukemia and ithout you guys, he wasn’t going,” the streamer said, showing off the images of the thank you note. 

“It was a last-second thing where we raised the money and just gave it to them and then, now, you made this kid go to Disney World.”

Mizkif wasn’t finished there, though, as he heaped praise on his viewers for helping make a wish come true. “You guys should be very proud of yourselves, because, look at this, there he is,” he added, revealing images of the child’s trip. 

The streamer also explained that the family had another thank you in-store, as they wanted to meet him in-person once they got back and settled from the trip. 

However, he wasn’t just the only child that Mizkif’s viewers had helped out, so there may be more heart-warming thank yous in the near future.

The moment did, though, show the power of Twitch when it rallies around a cause to make good things happen in the world – even for complete strangers.

YouTube star Logan Paul has confirmed he and Josie Canseco are no longer together in an unplanned reveal on the Impaulsive podcast with Mike Majlak.

Logan and Josie have had a rocky relationship, separating in mid-February, and rekindling their romance in May. Logan previously described their relationship as “f**king serious. It’s pretty serious.”

But in recent weeks, fans had been speculating as to whether the pair had broken up after rumors circulated, prompted by the two unfollowing and then refollowing each other on Instagram.

But in the November 24 episode of Impaulsive, Logan confirmed the rumors were true. Mike Majlak, Logan, and George Janko were discussing the art of sliding into girls’ DMs, and appeared to accidentally land on the topic of Logan’s break-up with Josie.

After Mike briefly brought up the topic of why Logan would be chatting to girls, he hesitantly revealed that Josie was in fact his ex. “It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I’m having with women who aren’t my girlfriend…ex-girlfriend.”

The YouTuber added that he’d rather not reveal the details of their split, preferring to keep this part of his life private. “I’ve always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don’t feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don’t feel like it.”

The trio also discussed how hard it is when a relationship is in the public eye when fans make assumptions if either side is spotted out with other people. Logan said, “It is hard when you have a relationship that is so much in the public eye.

“You leave people guessing, like when I’m on a podcast and talking like I’m single, but I am,” before confirming that “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out.”

Logan also explained he was finding it hard to move on, “I’m not f***king around. I’m not even at flirt stage yet. There’s a hump to get over before I feel comfortable being back at it.”

In the meantime, Logan revealed that he’d bought an adorable puppy to focus all his love and attention on before trying to date again.
