Go live to help end homelessness

Streamers and gamers can help us in our mission to end homelessness by raising vital funds and spreading awareness across their channels. By going live, you can help Crisis to build a movement to ensure that there is a home for all from now on.

Streaming inspiration

  • Marathon. Get your friends together for a non-stop  streaming marathon. 
  • Against The Clock. Set yourself a personal best time challenge to beat live on stream.
  • Rewind. Replay a retro or old game, or your first ever game, start-to-finish.
  • Building a better world: As we move towards recovery from the pandemic, we must build back better for people facing homelessness. Travel to new worlds or create the worlds that you want to live in. 
  • Community Spirit: By working together, and helping each other out, we can tackle all forms of homelessness once and for all. Stream as a collective to achieve top results for everyone! 
  • Working From Home: Make the most of the saved commuting time and go live from the comfort of your home to help ensure that there is a safe and secure place for all. 

Streaming is not just for gamers.  Bakers, make-up artists, musicians and gym bunnies to go live – create your own challenge and raise funds to help keep people connected and take their first steps out of homelessness.
