Welcome to Clatterbridge: Game On! Whether you play Apex Legends for a full 24 hours, host a FIFA tournament with your workmates or you livestream Among Us!
Clatterbridge: Game On! is all about fundraising for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity online by playing games & using online streaming services like Twitch so whether you take on a solo challenge, or team up with your friends & family - be part of the action!
Firstly, what is a charity stream? A charity stream is when a person broadcasts a video in real-time on the internet to raise money for a cause. For example, someone will livestream themselves opening FIFA packs or playing Fortnite. Everyone who watches the livestream will see the challenge and have the chance to donate money.
Charity Stream Checklist
You can either fundraise through JustGiving or we are set up with Tiltify which links with Twitch so all you need to do is:
- Create a fundraiser account using Titify (link above)
- Create your campaign
- Choose The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity as the cause
- Promote your charity stream on social media and tell all your friends
- Connect your fundraising campaign with your Twitch stream & you’re ready to go!
How to raise money by involving your audience
There are lots of ways to get your audience involved if you're streaming or hosting a gaming night. For example, you could set "Milestones" such as:
- Donation Targets, so that your audience knows what to aim for
- Offering options for people to vote on e.g. which teams to play with on FIFA
- Promise to do a forfeit if you reach a donation milestone. For example, you could put on a funny outfit, shave your head, match any donations made
Not an online gaming aficionado? Why not host a Board Games night with your friends and family on Zoom instead? There are lots of ways you can get involved - get in touch with us to find out more!
"The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre really helped and supported my dad during his diagnosis; he speaks so highly of the hospital and the staff, so I knew I wanted to do something to give back. I hosted a 12-hour stream on Twitch, and as my friends were watching the charity stream they were all incredibly excited at how much money we had raised together. The Clatterbridge: Game On website was super informative; especially when it came to setting up my Just Giving page and it really helped me decide to take on a charity stream – something I have never done before"
