Take breaks

Stretch, walk around, rest your eyes, even grab a quick nap if you need one. If you get crazy tired, or dizzy, anxious or angry at any point, go AFK until you feel better.

Streaming helps keep the excitement up for you and your sponsors.

Need help setting up? Here’s a useful guide.

Be daring

Set incentives to help you hit donation milestones, or to encourage people to donate a certain amount. Eat a spoonful of hot sauce. Put ice cubes under your armpits. Game for an hour talking like Scooby Doo.  If it’s safe, and you’re up for it, anything goes.
