Over the course of December 2017 British based YouTube and Twitch video game streamers/content creators the Yogscast raised $5,245,772 for a whole host of charities including Cancer Research UK, International Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Trans and Intersex Association, Mental Health Foundation, Special Effect, Wallace & Gromit's Grand Appeal, and Whale and Dolphin Conservation. The monies raised, via donations and purchases of the Jingle Jam  Humble Bundle were double those raised in 2016 (£2,577,801).

Tomorrow, December 1st, 2018 will see the Jingle Jam return, broadcast live on Twitch, with the hope that once again the Yogscast and its ever-growing fanbase can raise even more money for charity than they ever have before. Amidst the usual 'Bad Plays' and 'Comedic Banter', viewers can expect to see popular Jingle Jam streams including Jingle Cats, Karaoke, Hat Films' latest improv-album, Poker, the Christmas cooking stream, and the Yogscast's Office Cam as well as a host of streams playing popular games such as Civilization, Hearthstone, and TTD, all while the Yogscast consume heinous amounts of alcohol.

Based in Bristol, UK, the Yogscast began ten years ago in 2008 with founders Lewis Brindley and Simon Lane posting 'How To' and 'Lets Play' videos to Youtube of popular games such as World of Warcraft and (in 2010) Minecraft. Today the Yogscast employs dozens of staff across the world, has over 20 million subscribers, and has successfully taken the tentative first steps into becoming a video game publisher with the release of rogue-platformer Caveblazers.
