The Christmas Livestreams, also known as the Yogscast Jingle Jam as of 2014, are a series of livestreams that are shown over the course of December each year with the intention to raise money for charity. The streams are broadcasted live on the Yogscast Twitch channel, then the VoDs are archived to the Yogcast Live YouTube channel. A total of $11,604,997+ has been donated to charity over the course of the livestreams.

The livestreams first started back in 2011. Every year, viewers would offer to buy Simon and Lewis Christmas presents; but instead, they insisted the money should be donated to charity.[1] The initial goal of the streams was to raise money for a specific cause, however, they underestimated their goal the first year which lead to Oxfam receiving more money than needed for 'Give a Goat'. As a result, more charities were added every subsequent year to ensure donations are having the greatest impact possible.

In 2013, the Yogscast switched from using JustGiving for donations to Humble Bundle so games could be given to contributors as a thank you. This change lead to a drastic increase in the number of donators and the final donation amount compared to previous years.
