Take your gaming challenge to the next level

So, you're interested in taking part in Game Over Dementia? We understand everyone is different, so we ask you to take on dementia your way.

Fundraising through Tiltify or JustGiving are the most popular options among our Game Over Dementia community members.

What is Tiltify?

Tiltify is a livestream broadcasting platform that allows you to fundraise for Alzheimer's Society through Twitch, Mixer or YouTube. It is popular with streamers and fundraisers because it provides the tools to engage with supporters while you play.

We'd recommend this option for more experienced streamers.

What is JustGiving?

JustGiving is a popular way to fundraise for Alzheimer's Society because it is super easy to set up and get underway. JustGiving has been supporting online giving for a number of years.

We'd recommend this option for fundraisers who may not have done this before.

Need some ideas for your challenge?

  • Load up a gaming tournament for you and your friends and find out who is the MVP and who is the ultimate noob.
  • Host a gameathon and challenge yourself to a continuous stream for 12-24 hours and get your viewers to donate. 
  • Add some challenges or incentives. For example, you could wear fancy dress or eat a hot chili once you reach a certain target. If you're feeling brave you could get your family and friends to send in their ideas.
