When you see Ariel Jade live on stream, you witness a powerhouse entertainer. From impeccable cosplays to gaming shenanigans to musical performances, this “Jill-of-all-trades” puts on a performance that has reeled in nearly 14,000 Twitch followers.
As a full-time Twitch streamer, Ariel Jade puts in 10-hour workdays to produce content and media that entertain the masses. Yet behind those efforts is also a wholesome mission: to promote healthy relationships and positive vibes among her community, as well as beyond it through charitable efforts.
“I’ve always loved performing for people and giving them an escape from reality for a little while because life can become a little too much,” she said. “There are already so many outside pressures trying to pull us apart. To have some sort of pressure to pull us together and to be loving and inclusive to everybody I feel like is necessary.”
Ariel Jade Spreads Positivity to Her Community and the Streaming Industry at Large
Over the course of Ariel Jade’s professional streaming career, she has witnessed the livestream industry’s potential to be profoundly positive and dangerously toxic. Yet as a Twitch Partner and a larger scale influencer, she has the voice and the power to direct not only the tone of her own community environment, but also the streaming landscape.
One of the ways she does this is through Team Jaded; a 24-person content creation team that is focused on generating a positive movement that promotes healthy relationships and good vibes. It consists of a wide array of online entertainers, from Twitch personalities and eSports members to event hosts and body painters.
“I know ‘positive vibes’ is used so much,” she said. “Now it’s like this bland thing, but I really mean that. Each of my content creators, their ultimate goal is to make people feel accepted; to make people feel like they have a place to go… to have a collaborative space doesn’t matter your color, creed, or content style. As long as your ultimate goal is to perpetuate kindness and inclusion, that was my biggest [requirement].”
Another avenue is through her monthly charity efforts. Once a month she puts on a charity stream to help raise funds for a charity of her choice.
“If I can help someone and use my talents to help a good cause, I’m all for it,” Ariel Jade explained. “So I said [to my community], ‘You guys support me all month long. We’re going to support a charity once a month,’ and my community seemed to be receptive to that.”
She strives to support a different charity with each campaign, and looks for non-profits who may not have a lot of visibility so that she can use her platform to expand awareness of the organization’s cause.
Ariel Jade Aims to Raise $2,000 for Dreamscape Foundation in July Charity Stream
From July 27 to July 31 Ariel Jade will be conducting charity streams every evening in an effort to raise $2,000 for Dreamscape Foundation’s mission. Each stream will begin at 9pm EST/8pm CST, and will consist of a combination of popular gaming titles, such as Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty, as well as musical performances and viewer-instigated shenanigans.
Incentives will direct the course of the streams. For example, Ariel Jade will sing one song live on stream for each $100 donation received. There will also be events triggered by milestones, such as her playing video games while donning a horse head once viewers meet the halfway point of their charity goal ($1,000).
