What is livestreaming?

 to broadcast an event on the internet as it happens 

Livestreaming technology lets you watch, create, and share videos in real time, a bit like live TV.

All you need to be able to livestream is an internet-enabled device, like a computer, smart phone or tablet, and a platform to livestream from, such as Twitch.

Livestream fundraising ideas

Gaming

Did you know you can game for good? This is the most popular way to raise donations through livestreaming.

Check out our dedicated Let's Play hub for gaming fundraising.

Fitness challenge

Fitness challenges are tried and tested ways you can raise money for a cause that you care about.

You can livestream any fitness challenges such as marathons, 10K runs, cycling or hikes.

Document key milestones by going live and sharing your challenge with your supporters to gain more donations.

Pub quiz

Trivia and quiz nights are a brilliant way to fundraise from home.

Get sociable and have fun with a touch of friendly competition. Suggest a donation amount per person for entry - £10 per person is a good starting amount.

Please note: Gift Aid restrictions may apply.
