From 16 to 17 December, we’re calling all streamers to take on a cosy stream for Mind. Grab your blanket, gather your community and let’s make mental health a priority.
Fundraise by the virtual fireplace and alongside hundreds of others across England and Wales. Because no one should have to face a mental health problem alone.
How to take part
Step 1: Sign up and create your fundraising page on Tiltify. It’s easy and will take just 2 minutes.
Step 2: Schedule your stream for 16 to 17 December and invite your community using our social media resources.
Step 3: Pick what you’ll stream. Anything that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. Keep scrolling for ideas.
Step 4: Get cosy, have fun and make a difference. You'll be streaming alongside a community of hundreds of others fighting to make mental health a priority.

To help make your event the best it can be, we have lots of exciting incentives!

Ideas for your cosy stream
Set up a cosy backdrop and hold a chilled Just Chatting stream. We’re thinking fairy lights, a mug of tea and plenty of blankets.
Go live playing your favourite game. Maybe one that will make you and your community feel all nostalgic!
Stream yourself taking on a cosy craft. Drawing, knitting, wrapping presents, the choice is endless.
If you want more of a challenge, you could even take on one of our timed challenges:
Stream 4 hours for the 1 in 4 of us who experience a mental health problem every year.
Stream 15 hours for the 1 in 15 people who attempt suicide over the course of their lifetime.
Stream 21 hours for the 21 million times Mind's online information pages were visited last year.
Do I have to use Tiltify?
We recommend setting up a fundraising page on Tiltify because its easy to use and has lots of great features. There’s a fundraiser leaderboard to inspire healthy competition, as well as easy steps to add on fundraising milestones, incentives to encourage donations and polls so you can interact with your community.
But you are welcome to use JustGiving if you prefer. Simply follow this link to make your JustGiving page and click the 'start fundraising' button.
What if I can't stream on 16 or 17 December?
You can take on Mind's Cosy Streamathon whenever works for you. It doesn't have to be 16 or 17 December! Or if you'd like to check out our general streaming challenges, you can find more info about this here.
