Charity Auction – Featuring Make-A-Wish
We are very happy to again collaborate with Make-A-Wish Germany!
How To Take Part In The Auction
All bidding will happen in the Youtube stream chat. A chat bot will monitor and keep count of the bids.
For bidding during the charity event, write the chat command !bid <amount> (e.g. !bid 100 to bid 100 Euro) . All bids will be in Euros.
When bidding, please note the following few rules:
- don’t use fractions of euros (cents)
Correct: !bid 100 – Incorrect: !bid 100,20
- don’t include a currency (all bids will be in Euros per default!)
Correct: !bid 100 – Incorrect: !bid 100€
- keep the bidding message free from additional text
Correct: !bid 100 – Incorrect: !bid 100 btw, what is the answer to life the universe and everything?
Please keep to that scheme when bidding, otherwise your bid will be invalid and not registered by the chat bot.

For those of you not familiar, Make-A-Wish is a worldwide charity organization that aims to raise funds to fulfill the wishes of children with critical illnesses; be it travelling, meeting a beloved musician, becoming a firefighter and so on. The organization has successfully helped realize more than 300,000 wishes since its formation in 1980.
“When a wish comes true, it creates strength, hope and transformation in a child – and a community.”
All of these children are experiencing incredible hardships, fighting tough battles and possibly feeling alone in the world. While we might not be able to take their pain away, we do have the power to make a change. Research shows a wish can give children the strength to fight against and even overcome a critical illness.
It is, of course, the power of a community that can make a change happen. And so, our goal in this is to collect enough money to make it possible for these wishes to come true. We sincerely hope all of you will be willing to join us and help a child’s dream come true, whoever they are, wherever they come from.
We are very happy to be a part of this amazing cause, as we have always worked with charities that we personally feel strongly about. We also hope to be able to do more to raise funds for children with wishes, besides the traditional Charity Auction – so be on a lookout for that. In the meantime, let’s welcome our new friend, Charity Wishing Star, among our mascots!
