Anyone over the age of 16 can participate!
If you’re 16 or under, you must have the consent from a responsible parent or guardian. In addition, there needs to be supervision from them over the course of the streams.
Streams for Variety are fun and friendly activities that should be family friendly. All this means is that keep drug talk and encouragement of illegal activities out of your streams, no sexually explicit content, as well as no bigoted language.
We welcome diversity here, so we don’t tolerate any form of hatespeech.
I have some suggestions for you! How do I get in touch?
We absolutely love inputs from the community, content creators and viewers alike. We’d love to know what you’re looking for or even how we can help out! Get in contact with us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Any more tips on running a successful charity stream?
Planning your stream
Set a length of time that suits you!
24 hours can be a lot on your own, try for a shorter time (2-6 hours as a standard estimate) or team up with a friend or get a team together to tag out.
Get in some mods!
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!
In addition, setting up a bot with !charity !variety or !donate commands can be a super handy way to let people find information out super easily.
Test before you stream!
Make sure everything is working prior to your big go live date! Make sure to include our overlays and alerts - these will provide dynamic updates to your viewers as they donate.
Plan your incentives, rewards and milestones
Whether you're colouring your hair or doing a giveaway, plan your incentives before your big day. Some fantastic incentives we’ve seen included are:
Putting on a blindfold for 1min
Eating a chilli
Dying your hair / beard
Wearing a fun costume – or completely trash one
Let us know when you're streaming!
Make sure to tell your friends, fam and followers know what you're doing on socials - build it up to your event day to launch with a bang! Feel free to tag us, too - we'll make sure to spread word!
We're always keen to tune in, have fun, and support those supporting us!
Reach out to companies
Let your fav stores to let them know you are charity streaming for kids in need this holiday season - you never know, they may help promote it or help you out with giveaways!
When filling out your campaign description make sure you include a summary of why your helping Variety and the difference you and your supporters are making
Helpful Bots & Info
Due to the recent Hoss issues that have been plaguing Twitch, we want to make sure all of our community feel safe. We strongly recommend using Sery_Bot to help with any potential issues – the bot is constantly updating to ban known bot accounts.
This will keep you and your viewers safe from IP Grabbers.
You should also enable the twitch moderation setting that requires chatters to have a verified email, this prevents a great chunk of spam bots!
When you're streaming
Repeat your message
People might tune in and out so make sure you shout out regularly in stream and in the comments why it's important to donate to support your cause – people love to know why it’s especially important to you! We've included some easy talking points in our how-to guide to help out.
Thank and engage your supporters
While donations and comments are coming in, give your supporters a shout out to say thanks. And don't forget to do a follow up social post telling them how awesome they all are!
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!
Follow our community guidelines
Keep it friendly and fun and follow our community rules!
