Jingle Jam, the world’s biggest games charity event, is delighted to announce that this year’s event has raised over £3.4m for its charity partners, during a two-week period that saw over 85,000 donations from gamers across the world.
Beating the total amount raised in 2021, the incredible support from gamers, developers, and publishers take the total amount raised for charity to over £22m since Jingle Jam began in 2011, with over 79,000 thousand game collections sold during this year’s event.
This year, Jingle Jam is working with a wide range of charities, and money raised during this year’s event will support causes such as critical aid in Ukraine, physical and mental wellbeing initiatives, disease research, anti-bullying, LGBTQIA+ issues, mental health services for BaME communities, diversity and inclusivity in sports and gaming, wildlife conservation, and more.
“We are absolutely delighted to have raised such a fantastic amount for our charity partners during this year’s event,” said Lewis Brindley, co-founder, of The Yogscast and Jingle Jam Trustee. “A huge thanks to the generous publishers, developers, and partners who donated games and codes to this year’s Collection. We are honored to be able to help support 12 important causes, what a wonderful way to end the year.”
“To be able to raise more money than 2021 during such a difficult year for so many people, is incredible and we are delighted that the 12 charity partners can put this significant amount of money towards these fantastic causes,” said Rich Keith, Jingle Jam Chair. “We look forward to Jingle Jam returning in 2023, we will be seeking expressions of interest for 2023 charity partners soon.”
