Anyone age 13 or over. 

Can I stream outside of Starlight’s campaign dates? 
Yes! You can stream for Starlight year-round!

What platform can I stream on?
There are several live streaming services to choose from, like YouTube, Twitch, Facebook Live, and Instagram Live. The use of any service is subject to the service’s own terms, conditions, and policies. You can find helpful starter guides out there for each of these services.

Starlight Children’s Foundation does not endorse any streaming service.

Do I have to play games?

What games can I stream? 
You can stream any game with an ESRB rating of “Teen” or lower. Note that streaming content deemed objectionable by Starlight Children’s Foundation in its sole discretion will be cause for your account to be removed from the program. 

What can I do during my stream? 
We encourage you to be creative and have fun! Offering quirky incentives and prizes to your community is a great way to get them engaged. 

That said, there are a few rules: 

  • No profane, sexually explicit, degrading, hateful, bigoted or violent language or visuals 

  • No encouragement of risky, violent, or otherwise inappropriate conduct 

  • No streaming while intoxicated 

  • No illegal drugs or paraphernalia 

  • No advertising or other commercial content

How can people donate during my stream? 
There are so many ways to fundraise while you stream. Check out our Fundraising Quick Start Guide.

You can use Facebook or Instagram’s donate stickers or our Tiltify or Streamlabs campaign for a fun, stream-friendly donating experience.

You can also set up a personal fundraising page on Starlight’s website.to allow your supporters to donate directly to Starlight.

Do teams share prizes?
