Help kids and get cool stuff with the Create for Kids charity event

Charity drive for Save the Children where donors can receive a gift of a coloring book made by broadcasters!

Calling all streamers! We are holding our second annual #CreateForKids charity drive, powered by Tiltify, to raise money for Save the Children!

This is an incredible opportunity for us to show what a powerful force for good the Twitch community can be, help children around the world, and bring new viewers into your communities. Last year we raised over $17,000, and we are aiming to raise even more this year. Plus, an anonymous donor has even offered to match the first $30,000 raised! And, thanks to Elgato Gaming, the first five fundraisers to raise $1000 will get an Elgato Stream Deck.

For the event, we are taking submissions for a coloring book which will be included as a thank you package to donors. Donors will receive a digital copy as a thank you gift for $20 or more and a physical copy for $50 or more.

Anyone can participate, so you can raise money through any kind of stream. Create for Kids is an event that celebrates the creation of a coloring book so we do encourage broadcasters participating to try streaming to Twitch Creative. Want to stream to Creative but not sure what you can do? You can purchase a coloring book to color on stream, try a cooking broadcast, paint along with Bob Ross, or even perform interpretive dance and freestyle rap while you blacksmith. The possibilities are endless!

We can’t wait to see what you create; happy streaming!

  • Create a campaign! Create a fundraising campaign to raise money from July 21 to July 31.
