The Yogscast ‘Jingle Jam 2015’

The Yogscast Jingle Jam is a 24 day live stream marathon, with all your favourite Yogscast presenters playing games live via the Yogscast Twitch channel to raise money for charity.

Since it first launched in 2011, the annual Yogscast Jingle Jam has raised over £1.71M, and GamesAid are excited to be named as one of the charities who will receive money from their 2015 drive.

The Yogscast Jingle Jam 2015 will begin on Tuesday 1st December and will run until 24th December. Viewers can tune-in and choose to donate to charity purely to support the Jam but they can also gain access to a special Jingle Jam Humble Bundle of great PC games.

Games On Song

The games industry choir is back, and is aiming to raise more money than ever with their live Christmas Concert. Nearly 40 members of the games industry will take to the stage at St Stephen’s Church, Rosslyn Hill, London on Wednesday 16th December to sing a seasonal selection of festive tunes for GamesAid.

Tickets are on sale now via Golden Giving, priced £20 / £10 aged 16 and under, with extra surprises, mince pies, and mulled wine on the night.

“The choir have put in so much to make this a great evening of traditional carols, solos and game inspired songs” said Ian Chambers, Musical Director of Games On Song. “Join us to help raise more than ever for GamesAid.”

Make the wise choice! Spread some cheer and help us spread the word this Christmas!
