Marco, Volunteer Amabassador for Dementia UK

Dementia UK Volunteer Ambassador and Twitch Partner, Marco’s, top tips for a successful stream

“I’ve been streaming for over four years and have always believed I can make a huge difference by organising charity streams. I lost my father to dementia when I was 11 years old, so streaming for Dementia UK is the perfect opportunity to combine my gaming career with my passion for making a difference for other families affected by dementia.

Setting incentives based on targets or milestones is a great way to encourage people to make a donation. For example, you could wax your legs or dye your hair a different colour when you reach a certain milestone on your Tiltify or JustGiving page.

The gaming community loves a bit of humour and making things happen when certain goals are hit. Incentives can definitely go a long way, so be creative when planning your charity stream”.

Supporter Kurtis tells us about his reggae live stream

“I’ve been DJing music online for over four years now and have a built a wonderful reggae Facebook community. Previously, I have done two other charity live shows and really enjoyed raising money, so I decided to do an eight-hour live reggae Facebook livestream for Dementia UK.

Two of my family members are living with dementia, so I decided it was the perfect charity to raise funds for.

I set a target to reach during the eight-hour show and I told the audience that if the target was met, I would do an extra hour at the end of the show. This encouraged people watching to give generously. We smashed the target so I completed a nine-hour stream and raised £1,400.

When the kind people donated via the donation link, their name popped up on the screen straight away so I could thank them for their kind donation.

If you are thinking about doing this kind of charity fundraiser but are a little unsure how to go about it, then please reach out via my Facebook page. I will be more than happy to help.”
