Gamers for Orcas FAQ

All you need to know!

Tiltify
You can easily integrate your livestream into your own fundraising page through Tiltify. Visit the WDC Tiltify page and click 'Fundraise for us' and get started! Once set up you can then personalise your page and link to your Twitch or YouTube account.

Justgiving
If you don't need or want to stream anything live, you can set up a Justgiving fundraising page.  Contact us if you need help.

What else can I do with my fundraising page?
Personalise your page to encourage donations. Just email us for some whale and dolphin pics and info!

Whichever fundraising platform you use, be sure to share it with as many people as you can.

Do I need a Twitch channel?
If you want to livestream, you can open your own Twitch channel, and you can also use YouTube. But don't worry, you don't have to broadcast your gaming challenge at all!

What should I do?
Play any games you like, for as long as you like. Invite friends to join you, set up forfeits to encourage donations - something unique, silly or that friends know you wouldn't normally do.
Is there an age limit?
We welcome gamers of all ages, but if you are under 16 we recommend a mini-marathon of no more than 12 hours. Please let your parents or guardian know so that they can support you and ensure you take regular breaks and refreshments.
How long can I stream for?
It’s up to you! But we suggest a mini-marathon of 6 or 12 hours so you don't burn out! Make sure you take regular breaks and stay hydrated.
Are there any rules?
Check out the WDC Streamer Guidelines for some basic principles to use when talking about WDC during your stream as well as some general info and facts about WDC, and whales and dolphins. Please also think about your audience, time of day or night you will be gaming and, if appropriate, moderate adult content.
