The UK-based YouTube gaming sensations ‘Yogscast’ (who have over 7 million subscribers), supported WDC in 2016 by selecting us as one of their 6 charity partners for their ‘Jingle Jam’ fundraiser.
“Jingle Jam” is a charity event that runs throughout December and has raised over $3m in the last 4 years. During the Jingle Jam these pro gamers do live broadcasts on the livestreaming service, Twitch, every day of December for 6-9 hours a day, encouraging their fans to buy a bundle of amazing video games, with all proceeds going towards their chosen charities.
WDC were over the moon to receive a donation of $365,000 in 2016 – our largest ever single partner donation!
To celebrate, Yogscast CEO Mark Turpin and Yogscast partners, Hat Films joined WDC up in Scotland to spend time with WDC field officer, Charlie Phillips, out in the Moray Firth to try and spot some of our amazing adopt-a-dolphin stars.
