I believe it's technically self promotion and not allowed.

But charity tho

There's a freebies forum that's more likely more appropriate. You knew what you were doing.

Thing is, this isn't exactly a freebie though. That's why I was unsure.

I don't gain from this at all. Donations are made to JustGiving for Special Effect. I am the fundraiser and supplier of rewards.

The forum is called "Contests & Free Stuff". As this sounds like a mix of both, it would probably fit. Shopping Discussions might also work if you still aren't sure.

You are self-promoting your stream, though...

Bam. Thank you.
Like I said, you knew what you were doing. The fact that you're trying to defend yourself when people told you there are better forums for it, even after you claimed you weren't sure if this was the right place, is telling.

I prefer my charity to not be driven by someone else's self-promotion.

I'm sorry if I have offended people by posting this in the wrong forum. I had genuinely forgotten I posted last years fundraiser on CAG. 

 

It is NOT self-promotion. I use my Mixer channel ONCE PER YEAR for one reason only - GameBlast. Check if you don't believe me. I do not gain anything from this whatsoever. I'm not after followers on Mixer (why would I be if I don't use it regularly). 

 

In addition, I do not work for (or sponsored by) SpecialEffect, JustGiving or Mixer. I hold a full time job and enjoy video games as a hobby. I have been doing 1 stream per year for GameBlast to raise money for SpecialEffect.

 

The sole purpose of my GameBlast stream is to raise money for charity. I'm the kind of person who helps people. I've been an Xbox Ambassador for nearly 7 years, and have helped thousands of people over the years. I don't do that for rewards. I do it because I like to help. Just like with GameBlast, I do it because I care. I've raised nearly £1000 through the last 3 GameBlast streams, and that's something I'm proud of. 

 

A few months ago, I was fortunate to meet the team from SpecialEffect (the charity I'm raising for). They know I've been fundraising for them for years and are very grateful. 

 

So for those of you who are having a go at me over the smallest thing, I really do recommend you go elsewhere. Clearly this post is allowed otherwise mods would have removed it by now. 

 

Finally, a huge thank you to those who have made a donation. I am very grateful for your support, as I'm sure SpecialEffect are. Your donations will be going to provide support and equipment to those who are unable to use technology like we do every day.
