Adding the GivenGain livestreaming widget to your livestream

Aim: To display your GivenGain fundraising project donations in real- time while live-streaming online.

First:
Ensure that you have an active fundraising project – visit the ‘“Fundraiser projects” tab to view and look for your project(s) displaying and an “‘Active” ’ status next to the relevant project. If necessary, click on ‘“Create a project” to set up a new active project.

Getting the widget code:

Select the "Settings" tab on your fundraiser account and click on "Livestreaming". Choose the relevant project from the "Projects" dropdown menu, then copy the ”Donation alert” and / or “Progress bar” code.

Notes:

  • The Donation alert widget will be hidden from your live stream until a donation is made. When a donation is made, the details, including the donor’s name, the amount donated and any message of support will appear on your live stream for eight seconds.

  • The Progress bar widget continuously shows you and your audience how close you are to hitting your fundraising target. The bar is updated in real time as new donations are made. When you hit reach 100% of your target, the widget will be showered in confetti to celebrate your achievement.
