Gaming for good
If you’re interested in playing video games to raise funds for St Oswald’s Hospice you’ve come to the right place. The online gaming industry is making millions for charities across the globe. Gamers ‘stream’ their games live to an online audience, who then can make charitable donations, and we’d love you to be part of it!

Frequently asked questions
No, not at all. As long as you have a PC or console and a game to play, you’re all set! If you don’t have a PC, the consoles we recommend are Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch. Please see ‘How do I stream my event?’ below for further advice.
Here’s a handy guide to setting up a stream. We recommend using Twitch to stream your gaming. If you’re planning to live-stream you can link your JustGiving page to your Twitch stream so anyone watching can donate to you seamlessly.
Whilst we recommend you stream your event because it’s super fun for you, and anyone watching, it is not expected. You can simply complete your challenge and send a link to your fundraising page to your friends and family.
You will need to connect your Twitch account to your fundraising page. To do this go to your store on Xbox, PlayStation or Nintendo Switch and install the Twitch app and login. Once you’ve done this, you can connect your Twitch account to your fundraising page.
If you’d prefer to link to your Facebook, Youtube, Mixer or PlayStation Live, copy and paste the stream link to your story section on your page.
