The Yogscast have announced their sixth Jingle Jam, which will start on December 1.
The annual fundraiser will continue throughout the month of December, with a range of activities such as board game sessions, an art stream, and live gameplay being streamed on their Twitch channel daily between 11am and 12pm.

During their streams, The Yogscast will sell games on their Humble Bundle page, with new items added daily. The money raised is then donated to a charity of the donator’s choosing.
“Every Christmas people would offer to buy us presents, but I always thought, ‘Why don’t we give a gift instead?’,” Lewis Brindley explained. “The best way to thank us is to give a gift to someone less fortunate than us.”
The fundraiser will benefit charities such as Cancer Research UK, the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and Intersex Association, and Save the Children, but donators can choose any charity from a list of over 3000.
Over the past five years, The Yogscast have raised over $6 million for many different charities. In 2016, $2,577,801 was donated by 86,573 people. On the first day of Jingle Jam 2017 alone, $500,000 was raised, with some individuals donating up to $5000. Over 50,000 bundles were puchased within the first 48 hours.
