Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has done it again, as the face of the Democratic progressives raised $200,000 during an Among Us Livestream event.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, known for her quick wit and millennial progressiveness, has utilized Twitch as a way to reach out.
Over the past few months, the US Congresswoman streamed and talked to the citizens of the internet. So far, she’s winning it.
AOC’s Among Us stream was so good that she raised $200,000 for charity in only a few hours. These will go towards supporting eviction defense and food pantries.
AOC puts her money where her mouth is
AOC is among the most divisive politicians in the current landscape. She is also ultra-charismatic, intellectual, and charming to a fault. The congresswoman from the 14th district of New York is also a great communicator.
Love her or hate her, AOC’s Among Us Twitch streams are quite entertaining. Her last stream lasted for around six hours, featuring some other politician gamers.
These include some of her political friends, including Canadian Parliament member Jagmeet Singh and MN-D rep Ilhan Omar.
The gaming session was her second foray into the Twitch stream, explaining the idea of the fundraiser.
Her charity fundraiser, a day after Thanksgiving, pushed towards helping those affected by the economic crisis.
Over the past few days, AOC criticized the Republican Party for not signing the COVID stimulus fund.
So far, much of the United States is experiencing hunger, with hospitals and food banks stretch to their limit.
AOC is looking to put her money where her mouth is. Rather than wait for legislation, she’s doing small ways to help people in need.
AOC successful with a charity fundraiser
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pushed her Among Us charity stream with no hitches. Compared to her first fundraiser in October, the stream was smooth as butter. The first event had hackers running rampant after the stream itself.
We did it!
$200k raised in one livestream (on a whim!) for eviction defense, food pantries, and more.
This is going to make such a difference for those who need it most right now.
Thank you all 👾💞 https://t.co/KX5m5GXJ9B

The first Among Us Livestream she did was to raise voter awareness among the youth. It mainly targeted millennials, many of whom identify as Democrats.
She also had an Instagram Live that raised over $66,000 in less than an hour for undocumented people.
So far, the audience requested if she can bring in Bernie Sanders. Sanders is the political pick of the internet, known for his progressive platform for Healthcare for All. AOC promised she’ll try, though she expects him to be grumpy if he dies in-game.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made it clear that she will host another fundraiser stream soon. She has more than 800,000 followers on Twitch, which is as big as most long-time streamers on the platform.
