Partnered streamers on Mixer received a surprise gift of $100 on Thursday, apparently to lend a hand during the coronavirus outbreak. Mixer hasn't said anything about it, but streamers have been thanking the Microsoft-owned platform on Twitter. 

While Mixer's top streamers, like Ninja, are multi-millionaires and stream full-time, most partners do it on top of other jobs, which they might now be unable to do if they can't work remotely. $100 can fill a fridge or help out with rent, so it's likely a very welcome gesture.
