Variety changes the lives of kids in need through the provision of tangible equipment and programs. By streaming for good, you can make a difference.
Choose Your Challenge
What's your jam?
24 hours with mates? FIFA for thirty days? Fortnite for a fortnight? Spectacular speed runs? You can even host a tournament! It’s up to you! Remember to set up lots of incentvies and milestones for when you hit fundraising goals, when you receive a donation over a certain amount or if someone donates in the next five minutes, for example. Your incentives are up to your imagination - here's some ideas:
Get a big bowl and write your donors names on pieces of paper - every now and then do a draw and a giveaway
Set milestones like $100, $500 etc and do something fun, silly, awesome when you hit them - e.g. dress up in a costume, eat something hot!
Level Up Your Streaming Game
From overalys to ripper social assets to share, we’ve got you! Check out your resource pack sent with your sign on email or (if you are fundraising on the Variety Level Up for Kids platform) check out your dashboard for DLC.
Start promoting your stream for good at least a few weeks in advance. Promote it on your regular stream and tell family and friends. Share on socials - you can even drop teasers about your incentives. Ask your mates and followers to share on socials and spread the word. Tag @varietyvic and use the hastag #VarietyGamingforGood
Activate Your Heart to Empower Kids
Use the heart sign in your promo socials and on your stream to show you care about empowering kids in need!
Level Up to Unlock Awards
We've checked in with streamers for good across the web. Here's some of their top tips.
Set a length of time that suits you
24 hours can be a lot on your own, try for a shorter time or hook up with a friend or get a team together to tag out
Ask a moderator to help out
Gaming and chatting at the same time - including sharing links to your fundraising page regularly or letting your followers know about your incentives - can be tricky. Ask a friend to moderate for you!
Test before you stream
Make sure everything is working prior to your big go live date!
Plan your incentives, rewards and milestones
Whether you're colouring your hair or doing a giveaway (there are loads of ideas - check them out in the FAQ) plan your incentives before your big day. We recommend you GET RED as a theme - colour your hair red, wear red (pop on that tutu!), paint your face red or with hearts, chuck on those red sunnies!
Pick games that your followers are into
RPG, FPS, fantasy, horror - what are your followers most interested in seeing - put your thinking cap on or ask them, community feedback is awesome.
Reach out to companies
Let your fave devs know your charity streaming their game - you never know they may help promote it or help you out with giveaways!
When you sign on to level up, we'll provide you with overlays including BRB screens so you can have a stretch, grab a glass of water or stock up on snacks!
