St. Baldrick’s Foundation's Catch a Million marathon returns for 2023, asking streamers to catch 1 million Pokémon to support kids cancer research
The Catch a Million event this year is sponsored by a selection of other gaming and technology brands, including Logitech, as well as returning 2022 sponsor Sports Clips Haircuts. The 2022 Catch a Million event raised $39,170.47, with more than 50 creators, including Bulbagarden's own Twitch team, taking part.
Whereas last year's event required creators to be streaming on Twitch, this year's event will be making use of a special app that can integrate with both Twitch and YouTube streams. As long as participating streamers are livestreaming on either platform with the tracker running, the app will track their every Pokémon capture they make during the fundraiser, with captures across all generations of Pokémon games counting toward the million-Pokémon goal. Live updates of captures will be provided on CatchAMillion.com.
All streamers interested in participating in the event will need to:
- Register on catchamillion.com to get access to the app and contribute towards the goal.
- Go to the official Catch a Million 2023 campaign on the Tiltify fundraising platform, and then create their own linked fundraiser connected to their Twitch and/or YouTube channels
- Sign up to the official Discord server for creators taking part in the event (the link will be in your Tiltify confirmation email for the campaign).
