Another Jam-tastic Christmas gift from the Yogscast

Bristol-based video game-streaming stars, The Yogscast have once again proved themselves to be top dogs in fundraising by helping to raise a whopping $2.7 million for good causes, with over $270,000 of that going to WDC. This amazing fundraising effort will help us continue our vital work protecting whales and dolphins across the globe.

The money was raised through Yogscast’s Jingle Jam, an annual charity live streaming event that takes place in December on the gaming platform Twitch.

In December, the team live-streamed over 700 hours of entertaining content from video games, table top games, karaoke and IRL (In Real Life) events such as touring their hometown, Bristol’s, Christmas Market. Watched by millions of fans, the Jingle Jam encourages viewers to buy an exclusive Jingle Jam Humble Bundle, a selection of computer games contributed by over 50 developers and publishers.

From everyone at WDC, we want to say a huge thank you to the Yogscast, Humble Bundle, all the developers and publishers who donated games, and the Yogscast fans who purchased the bundle and supported WDC with their donations.
