This holiday season, do good in the world while having fun and supporting streamers with Bits! From Dec 18–29, every time you Cheer with the hashtag #charity, Twitch will donate $2 to Direct Relief for every 1000 Bits Cheered. Every Bit Cheered using the hashtag counts toward the total. The streamer still gets the same support from the Bits; Twitch is donating to the charity based on your Cheers. This year our #charity drive supports Direct Relief, which provides critical medicines and supplies to communities in need and in response to disasters.
Direct Relief is a humanitarian aid organization, active in all 50 U.S. states and over 80 countries, with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies. Direct Relief ships essential medicines and medical supplies to healthcare organizations on an ongoing basis, but is also able to dial up the mobilization of these critical resources during times of disaster. Recognized by Charity Navigator as a four-star charity, the organization has been active in responding to Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as the recent earthquakes in Mexico and wildfires in Northern and Southern California
Please join us in showing support for this great organization and the vital work they do by adding #charity every time you Cheer!
Q. Do small amounts of Bits count?
Yes! All Bits with the #charity hashtag will be counted towards the total.
Q. Do Cheermotes count? Can I use Kappa1000, Kreygasm5000, Swiftrage10000, or any Partner Custom Cheermote, and add #charity?
Yes! All Bits, including any Cheermote, with the #charity hashtag will be counted towards the total.
Q. Does this take away from what the streamer receives from the Cheer?
No! The streamer whose channel you’re Cheering in still gets the same share of the Bits as they normally do. Twitch is making the donation based on the number of Bits you use with the hashtag.
