You can stream for a wide variety of reasons. Streaming to raise money for charity is an excellent way to both have some fun and do some good in the world. Yet how do you go about streaming for charity? Consider this guide if you’re looking to do some streaming for charity.
The first step to streaming for charity is picking a good charity to donate to. It’s tempting to just pick a charity that you like the sound of, but it’s important to make sure that you’re actually doing good with the money you donate. Groups like CharityNavigator and GiveWell rate the effectiveness of charities by analyzing how they spend the money they receive. For instance, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, the beneficiaries of the Extra Life charity event have been rated 4 out of 4 stars by CharityNavigator. So pick a charity that addresses a cause you care about and does measurable good.

The landscape of social media is always changing, and with it comes changes to advertising and revenue models. As an example, YouTube has recently instituted new restrictions for monetizing videos. These restrictions include having more than 1,000 subscribers and having more than 4,000 hours of watch time on your videos. So bear in mind that you will have to jump this hurdle to earn any money on YouTube at all. Thus the question becomes, “How do I get more subscribers and views?” You can make a lot of money on YouTube, but it will not be quick and it will not be easy.

Video games that have active fanbases and communities are great options for streaming. This is even more true if the game in question has an active modding community. Mods make playing a game, and watching a game being played, more unique, which adds to its appeal and longevity. What are some of the most modded video games of all time? Which ones are worth streaming and modding on your PC?
The popular first person shooter Battlefield 1942 is a game which got official support from its developers, who released toolkits for modders. As a result the game is still receiving new mods to this day and still has an active player base. Fighting on pirate ships with rocket launchers in place of starboard cannons is just plain fun.
The open world nature of the Grand Theft Auto games makes them a popular series to mod. There’s a crazy amount of mods to be found online for GTA5, including a functional Iron Man suit, and even Rick’s spaceship from Rick and Morty. GTA5 itself is an extremely popular game to stream, and spicing up your own stream with some fun mods will earn you some views for certain.
