GAME TOGETHER 2023!

Get your diaries ready – we have our date for Game Together 2023! Hooray!

That’s right, Game Together will return in 2023 on Saturday 23rd – Sunday 24th September! This will be our dedicated weekend but remember you can get involved whenever suits you around that date.

Game Together is our annual fundraiser in September that seriously puts the FUN in fundraiser! If you love gaming then this is the fundraiser for you. It is a weekend dedicated to gaming and raising funds to help disabled people game together. Money raised helps us make or purchase assistive technology so people of all abilities can game, purchase new games so children can game alongside each other having fun and helps us ensure our services remain free for disabled people.

Take a nosey at our video to find out what goes on, who it helps and how YOU can get involved!

So, if you love gaming and want to ensure everyone can game then why not get involved? Here are the ways you can help disabled people game together…

  • Stream! If you’re a streamer and love gaming why not set yourself a challenge that weekend and do a charity stream for Everyone Can! You can stream for however long you wish over the weekend, any contribution would make a huge difference. We have everything you need in our streaming pack from Twitch overlays, logos, photos and videos.
  • Set yourself a gaming challenge! Why not get all your friends around to your house and set yourself a gaming challenge like a tournament or see how long you can game for! You can then ask friends and family to sponsor you for your challenge.
  • Donate and support our stream! The staff will be gaming over the weekend so any support and donations we can get are sure to keep us motivated!
To register your interest for 2023 please email [email protected] and as soon as registration opens we will be in touch with everything you need to sign up!

How to raise money

If you’ve raised money online before, then you may well be aware of the following planforms and may have your own preferred one. Either way, you may want to use any of our photo’s videos and logos. These can all be found here – https://everyonecan.org.uk/online-fundraising-pack/

These are 3 fundraising platforms that we can be found on and some steps on how to use them to raise money for Everyone Can:

Twitch

  1. Go to your Creators Dashboard and select Charity from the menu on the left-hand side of your screen.
  2. Type “Everyone Can” into the search box under Support the cause you care about and we should rise to the top of the list of charities listed below. Click on “Create fundraiser”
  3. The next page enables you to set an optional donation goal and explains how your community can donate directly from your page
  4. Now you have Everyone Can set up as your Fundraiser. (Thank you!)
  5. You can now start fundraising by just clicking on the Start Fundraiser button and you can also stop fundraising at any time, as well as increasing your goal, if your community are being even more awesome than you imagined
  6. Viewers of your channel can now donate by clicking on the “Donate” button next to the “Subscribe” button

Twitch uses the PayPal Giving Fund and I think you need to have reached Twitch Affiliate to use this funding tool.

Titlify
Here’s the steps to take:

  1. Go to Tiltify.com and search for Everyone Can under Causes/Events. We should be the cause listed at the top, though if not, look for the logo of 2 space invaders
  2. Select us and that should take you to our page
  3. Click on Start fundraising (If you don’t already have a fundraising account, you will need to create one)
  4. You will now be able to set up an individual campaign or a team campaign (if you want to link with others who are raising funds for us and have your donations pooled)

You will then need to give your campaign a name. Something like “Helping Everyone Can to improve the lives of disabled people through gaming” or “Jack’s fundraiser for Everyone Can”. You’re probably not called Jack, but you get the idea.

Next you can add photos and videos (please feel free to use any from this page https://everyonecan.org.uk/online-fundraising-pack/ .

This is also where you can link your stream to the page.

Just Giving

Here’s how to raise funds using Just Giving:
Go to https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/gametogether2023 and click on Start Fundraising
Select “I’m doing my own activity” and click next
The following pages should lead you through the rest of the process.
