Popular Twitch streamer Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo made an incredible gesture by raising over $20,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation, during his stream on August 7.

Ahead of his charity stream, Mizkif set out certain challenges for each of the donation milestones along the way to add an extra incentive in entertaining those willing to help out with the cause.

The variety streamer entertained fans for over 10 hours on Twitch, which included appearances from fellow streamers Erobb and MayaHiga, until they eventually hit their goal of $20,000 with an incredible donation to help them cross the line.

TwitchMizkif held the title for most concurrent viewers on Twitch during his charity stream.

Mizkif’s stream was pulling tens of thousands of viewers as they celebrated each of the donation milestones along the way, such as the $10,000 mark where Erobb and Mizkif hilariously tried to rip another streamer TrainwrecksTV‘s merch in celebration.

Their attempts did not go to plan, however, as they both began to struggle to rip the fabric and looked towards each other for help, resulting in pair almost wrestling with each other before ultimately giving up and just taking the t-shirts off.

MayaHiga couldn’t help but laugh at their failed efforts, but fans immediately began to point out how good the quality of Trainwrecks’ t-shirts were, jokingly suggesting that the attempt was done to help advertise their fellow Twitch streamers apparel.

The stream was winding down in its later stages when they started to near the $20,000 mark and unexpectedly a massive donation of $2,719 came in, giving Mizkif almost the exact amount needed to reach his goal, and catching him completely off guard.

Mizkif was left speechless with his mouth open when he first noticed the incredible donation amount, before simply screaming the donator’s name in shock, “Chris Blackwood!”

The streamer later thanked his community and all of the viewers who contributed in making the charity stream as successful as it was, by raising over $20,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation, “I couldn’t be more proud of my eggs, and Twitch as a whole. Thank you guys so much.”

Mizkif’s stream gathered a lot of attention from those on the platform and even became the channel with most concurrent viewers on Twitch for a time during his stream.

YouTuber Jake Paul and former UFC star Ben Askren are set to take to the boxing ring on April 17, but they’re already in a war of words ahead of the bout.

It’s no Conor McGregor, but Jake Paul is going big for his next boxing bout.

After taking down Nate Robinson with relative ease, the YouTube star turned hopeful boxer will take to the ring against Ben Askren on April 17.

However, in the lead up to the fight, the two have already thrown punches over text.

Ben Askren leaked DMs between the two on February 24, claiming “this next generation has some really bad role models.”

“Hey Jake seriously were you even trying against Ben [Darmstadt]? That was pathetic. Hope you try a little bit harder in our fight,” the former UFC fighter opened with in the exchange.

“Hiya bubba! So good to hear from you! I know Masvidal gave you brain damage so I’m guessing you meant to ask if I was even trying against Nate,” Paul replied.

“We’re going to get you through this fight nice and fast so you can retire after.”

Askren clarified that he was talking about Ben Darmstadt, before Jake Paul went on a tangent, asking his opponents if he’s ever taken drugs, saying he needs “help taking his edge off.”

While Askren ignored most of Paul’s questions, he had the final jab ahead of the bout.

“You gave up here like you’re going to give up in our fight. You don’t have the heart. Please don’t back out of our fight.”

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren is locked in for April 17, and is set to be one of the biggest PPV fights in history.
