Last week, in consideration of recent events, we announced Gamers for Giving 2020 would shift to an online-only format. The full post and details regarding refunds for attendees can be read here.
While this year’s event won’t include our regular LAN party, there’s no stopping our ability to unite as a community and stream!
This year’s event will take place over the course of March 28th & 29th as an online streaming marathon. We’ll be hosting our own broadcast from a studio in Los Angeles, sharing updates on our programs, chatting with special guests, and checking-in with streamers around the internet.
The amazing news is that you can help! We’re hoping to raise more than $700,000 in support of providing entertainment to hospitalized children. Every donation counts towards reaching the goal!
Here’s how to get involved:
- Step 1: Create an account on the fundraising platform, Tiltify.
- Step 2: Once your account is created, make your own fundraiser in support of the Gamers for Giving 2020 campaign! Be sure to customize the settings for your fundraiser. You can embed a stream player, and even set incentives to encourage donations.
- Step 3: If you’re hosting a stream broadcast on a website like Twitch, Mixer, or YouTube, use our asset kit to decorate your broadcast! You’ll find overlays, photos, and donation graphics in the folder provided.
- Step 4: Publish & promote your fundraiser! Share the word on social media, and be sure to link your donors / viewers to your unique fundraising page. All donations will contribute towards the $700,000 total, and you’ll be able to see how much you raise along the way!
Not a streamer? You can still create a campaign, encourage friends to donate, or make a contribution yourself on our website! You can also use platforms like Facebook to rally friends and raise money for Gamers Outreach programs. Or consider selling things on eBay to help the cause! We hope you’ll join us on March 28th & 29th during this year’s online marathon. We’ll see you on the internet!
