How to fundraise through gaming
Choose your challenge! Pick your game and set your target – ideas include going for a gaming marathon, hosting a tournament or completing the game in the fastest time possible.
Choose a date and time – when will be best for your #CFNextLevel challenge? If multiple people are involved, evening may be better for those who are working. If you’re doing a marathon, an early start may be in order.
Set up your online fundraising page – JustGiving have made it easy to set up and personalise your fundraising page. If you need help, they have a great toolkit.
Streaming? If you would like to stream your gaming challenge, register with Twitch. Do a test run before the big day so you are familiar with how to operate Twitch.
Spread the word! Tell all your friends and family, and shout about your gaming adventure on social media. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #CFNextLevel and tag us too @cftrust.
Hear from CF gamers
“I have found that by doing fundraising events in the ‘online world’ it means that it is easy for CFers to engage with one another and to form friendships. That way you’re not just raising money for the CF Trust, but also you’re creating a community full of support from individuals in the same situation as you are.” – Ryan
