The Yogcast Jingle Jam 2022: schedule for charity streaming event, what is it - and how long does it last?

Yogcast Jingle Jam is a two-week charity livestream gaming event designed to raise money for good causes across the UK. The event will air live on Twitch.

The two-week charity gaming event, Yogcast Jingle Jam, returns for its 11th year, and will be supporting a dozen charities through a selection of streaming events. Yogcast has raised more than £2 million in the first week of the event, but with another week still to go, that figure could be doubled.

Supporters who donate £35 or more will gain access to 84 games collectively worth over £1,000. Included in the games package is Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War, The Turing Test, and A Total War Saga: TROY, as well as many more.

What is Yogcast Jingle Jam 2022?

Jingle Jam was started in 2011 by Lewis and Simon of the Yogcast YouTube channel, which was at the time the biggest gaming channel on the platform. The YouTubers decided to ask their fans to donate money to Oxfam in lieu of Christmas presents - in the first year $100,000 was raised for the charity.

Over the years Jingle Jam has expanded, creators from different channels have got involved, and video game developers have created special games which are sent to supporters who donate over a certain amount.

Last year Jingle Jame launched a series of community-based fundraisers bringing together creators, charities and games companies which collectively raised £480,000. This initiative will continue this year with supporters able to register to take part before Jingle Jam 2022 ends.

Jingle Jam has raised more than $25 million for various charities since it launched - causes it has supported include sustainability, conservation, war relief, accessibility in gaming and sport, cancer research, LGBTQ+ issues, and combating racism. This year more than £2.7 million has been raised so far.
