How to Game for Galop this December
We’re thrilled to be a chosen charity for Jingle Jam 2023! And we’re even more thrilled that you’ve decided to game to unlock the futures of young LGBT+ victims and survivors of abuse.
Here’s all the information you need to get started:
What is Jingle Jam?
Jingle Jam is the world’s largest charity gaming event, where streamers play online and raise funds for two weeks from 1st of December to 14th of December.
What could my streams for Galop x Jingle Jam do?
By streaming for Galop, you’ll be unlocking the lives of young LGBT+ victims and survivors by helping us to build a National Abuse and Violence service for LGBT+ youth. This means that more young LGBT+ people will be able to access vital support like crisis funds for food and clothing; access to emergency housing and ongoing emotional and practical support.

Any tips on how to boost donations?
The best way to boost your donations is by involving the people watching your streams. Tiltify has interactive tools, like polls, rewards and milestones to try out. Here are some suggestions on how you could use them:
Whether it’s putting on a costume, undertaking a forfeit or a decision in your game – your community want to have their say! You could put the power in their hands of your audience by using voting polls during your stream.
Offer donors who give over a certain amount a reward – this could be something that you do during the stream (like 10 burpees), or actually sending them something (a prop you’ve used on your stream or a sticker).
You’ve hit the halfway point in your fundraising! How are you going to celebrate with your community? More importantly, what do you think they want to see?
Set milestone goals for your fundraising to bring hype to your stream and targets, so your community can help you get there. This could be at any point of your fundraising target, and could be any form of celebrating – the more entertaining to watch, the better!
How can I tell my community about my fundraising page during my stream?
Let a Chat Bot do the work for you! You can set up a Chat Bot to send messages at timed intervals during your stream, with information about Galop and your fundraising page.
What is the Jingle Jam Games Collection?
Your community can get exclusive access to the Jingle Jam Games Collection by donating to your fundraiser. This fantastic package is hundreds of pounds worth of game keys, gifted to individuals on your stream who donate £35 or more. There are only 100,000 Jingle Jam Games Collections available, so if you want your community to have access to them, set up your stream as early as possible during the two weeks.
Who are Galop?
