4. Collect donations

Set yourself a fundraising goal for your stream and share that with the audience. Make sure you ask for donation at regular points throughout the stream and remind people what the target is.

Take time to check you JustGiving page and thank people who have donated during the stream.

Decide on some milestone donation amounts that you can call out during the stream. You could also link activities to those milestone, like putting on a costume when you reach 50% of your target.
