Twitch streamer ‘thatgalpaigee’ got quite emotional after a viewer decided to give her a large donation to help her buy a Nintendo Switch.

The streamer was playing Minecraft and chatting with her viewers on March 25 when her eyes suddenly grew wide as a donation popped up on her screen for $154.

“What the f**k just happened?” she gasped, her jaw dropping in disbelief. “Someone just donated one hundred and fifty four dollars!”

“Their name was just ‘Dream!’” she told her companion. “What the f**k? I can’t even speak!”

The speechless streamer’s good fortune didn’t stop there, either, as the donor gave her another $46 to make it an even $200. She was so stunned that she decided to call her dad to  tell him the good news.

“Hi dad,” she began. “You won’t believe what just happened! Someone donated $200.”

“Who? You’re kidding me!” her father responded.

“I’m not!” she proclaimed, fighting back the tears of happiness.

“That’s great. Are you excited?” her dad asked, but the streamer couldn’t hold back her emotions and started to cry on camera.

Meanwhile, the donor was watching all of this unfold on his end, and posted her reaction to Twitter.

“A random Twitch streamer had a donation goal of $200 to get a Switch, so I donated it, and her reaction was way too wholesome not to share with everyone,” he wrote.

Watching a clip of the wholesome moment from his own stream, viewers can hear the donor react to her tears, who was pleasantly surprised – if a bit humored – that she phoned her father to tell him the good news.

With so much negativity and uncertainty in the world at the moment, this gesture is a good reminder of the good that exists, too. Hopefully, she’ll be able to get her Switch and start streaming some Nintendo games in the future.

Small streamer emotional after PewDiePie donates

On September 24, Twitch streamer BluWolfie123 was playing the wildly popular title Among Us when he received a donation from PewDiePie. Stunned and not sure if it was really the YouTuber, the personality exclaimed “That’s f**king insane. What the hell! It’s my first donation!”

On October 15, the entertainer decided to donate to the streamer a second time. “This is the same [streamer] from last time. Hey, he grew in viewers, good for him!” Pewds said, as he donated another $100. Shocked, BluWolfie exclaimed, “What the f**k?!”

The Twitch streamer then asked if PewDiePie was watching him live, before thanking him: “Holy s**t, thank you! I wanted to say thank you. I commented on your last video, but it got buried. Yo, if you’re there, I wanted to say thank you before. I wanted to thank you directly. If you’re here, thank you! You’re f**king awesome! I can not thank you enough.”

(Topic starts at 5:00.)

Kjellberg thanked Wolfie for his kind words and then told viewers to check out the user’s Twitch channel. “Check out BluWolfie, he’s so wholesome,” he said. The streamer further commented on the situation on his About page. “I got super lucky thanks to the Pewds and his community and I’m super happy.”

Pewds also gave away money to several other small channels on the Amazon-owned streaming platform – a few of whom cried over the popular YouTuber popping in to watch their broadcast.

This isn’t the first time PewDiePie has donated money. For months, he has been donating all of his streaming subscriber money to various charities. In October, he sent a mental health charity $144k.
