Today’s #BeKind21 message is from Tiltify.

“As a kid, my mom always taught me to give back whenever I could.”  

Ashley, better known on Twitch as MsAshRocks, is a remarkable content creator who has helped raise more than $100,000 for nonprofit organizations. Inspired by her mother’s generosity and commitment to giving, Ashley first started volunteering at events when she was only four years old. After growing up with a single parent and enduring homelessness as a child, Ashley shares, “I know what it feels like to need help, which is why nothing makes me happier than being able to help others.”

When Ashley found an opportunity to start giving through her Twitch community, she set the goal of raising $150 for her first fundraising campaign on Tiltify, our digital fundraising platform that helps content creators raise money for social causes. When she exceeded her fundraising goal and raised more than $1,000, she became even more motivated to keep giving.

To continue expanding her impact, Ashley recently joined the team at Tiltify as a Community Manager. Her role allows her to highlight the stories of fellow content creators who share her passion for sharing kindness online. 

With a following of 30,000 on Twitch, Ashley’s mom remains her biggest fan and cheerleader. “She tells me every day that she loves me and that I’m beautiful. She’s a powerhouse of a mom and supports everything I do.”
