Organise a charity livestream or gaming event and create your fundraising page here. We'll help with resources, links, tips and case study videos, to help you max out your donations and have fun!

Decide what

Charity livestreams, speed runs, board game marathons, human Hungry Hippos...?

Decide where

Confirm your venue, whether it's home or work, as part of another event maybe. Would it be worth hiring out a cafe or hall?

Decide when

Set a date that suits you.
