Calling All Gamers!

The Hope Foundation have partnered with Tiltify so you can now fundraise through your favourite gaming livestreaming sites!

We are living in interesting times. COVID-19 has changed the way we live our lives.  If you love streaming you can help us continue our work with the street and slum children of Kolkata as we all come together to help each other in these difficult times.

Are you Interested in supporting us through a streaming event?  If that’s the case you have come to the right place. Schedule a streaming event wherever you want, whenever you want, for as long as you want.

How do I set up my stream?

Twitch, YouTube and Facebook all offer live-streaming services. Each of these platforms have straightforward guides on how to get started. If you’re new to streaming, try Twitch’s starter guide. It has a series of how-to sections that will walk you through all the basics (you must be logged in to your Twitch account to view the guide).

You must be 13 years old to stream on Twitch.

 

So where does the fundraiser part come into play?

The first step is to visit the Stream for HOPE’s Tiltify page, sign up and create your campaign. It only takes a couple of minutes! Once you start a new streaming campaign, you can include your Twitch ID that will embed your Twitch channel in your fundraising campaign. Let your family and friends know that you’ll be playing for a great cause and encourage them to support you!

All donations can be made directly through your Tiltify campaign page, and all the funds will go straight to The Hope Foundation. Whenever you’re done with your campaign and ready to go back to your non-fundraising gaming, you can easily remove your Twitch ID by logging on to your Tiltify dashboard.

 

What if I receive cash donations?

You just need to convert the cash to a cheque or lodge it to our account (details below). Just make sure you put your details in the reference section so we know who made the donation. Alternatively you can donate online here. You can also ring the office with your card details on 353(0)21 4292990.

Okay, but what do I actually do while I stream?

First and foremost show off those skills and have fun! You’re playing a game you love all while helping support the education and protection of the street and slum children of Kolkata.

 

Things not to do when you are streaming

While you’re streaming, please avoid any profanity as well as any sexually explicit,racist, bigoted, or misogynistic language or behavior.
And, finally, if you’re intoxicated or engaging in any illegal activities, that’s probably not a good time to stream, either. Streaming while engaging in any of the above will result in your fundraiser being shut down.

 

I still have questions!

No problem! Send us an email at mary@hopefoundation.ie and we’ll do everything we can to get you the answers you need.
