If your're a gamer and want to support Open Medicine Foundation, I've set up a charity donation campaign team at streamlabscharity.com called Gamers for M.E. 100% of the donations goes to Open Medicine Foundation.

You'll find the campaign here:
https://streamlabscharity.com/teams/@gamers-for-me/open-medicine-foundation-fundraiser

Even though the team name is Gamers for M.E, it's of course open to join for everyone who streams and want to support OMF. Streamlabs support both Twitch, Youtube and Facebook.

You can also stop by the page and just donate to OMF, no streaming or gaming required, only paypal.

If you want to, you can also create your own campaign or team, as OMF is registered at streamlabscharity.com, and the same is ME Research UK.

Twitch has raised over $75 million for various organizations since 2012, so the potential is huge. OMF has only received $3500 off this via Streamlabs charity donations, but Streamlabs only started doing charity donations a year or two ago.

This project is obviously only meant for those who are interested and feel well enough to participate. I anticipate that might not be very many, but it is open to friends or family who want to support OMF as well.

A big part of the project is to get the message out in a different environment than the "social media bubble" on Twitter, Facebook and so on. If some large streamers on Twitch were to join or host a charity session or two, it could mean a lot, both for donations, and awareness. If the project slowly grows, we can create larger events later, and maybe draw attention from far outside our own sphere.

PS!
I am not affiliated with Streamlabs or Twitch. I set up this campaign at Streamlabscharity because, unlike some other similar sites, 100% of the donations goes to OMF, and OMF is registered there. ME Research UK is also registered there:

OMF at Streamlabs:

ME Research UK at Streamlabs:

Unfortunately I'm not really a streamer, although I do have a Twitch account. I have played an awful lot of video games though, and see this project as a potentially good way to bring more attention to the ME-cause, and more funding for biomedical research!
