7 ways to support Global Game Jam (or PLEASE support GGJ!)

Dear GGJ fans, 

GGJ is the largest jam in the world. We are expected to break 30,000 participants in January 2016, as we get ready to do this for the eighth time. In honor of that milestone, here are a few things you can do to support Global Game Jam now.

  1. Sponsor GGJ. Whether you are with a big company or small studio, you can help us organize GGJ and be visible to all participants for your generosity. See here for more.
  2. Donate to GGJ. Personal donations are welcome and tax deductible. Any individual donating $100 or more will be thanked personally and publicly by the organization. Donate by paypal here.
  3. Shop at Amazon.com via the AmazonSmile program. Amazon will make a small donation to GGJ everytime you shop using the portal.
  4. Support your local jam site. GGJ sites are everywhere around the world (about 500 locations expected). Provide them with space, funding or buy them food!
  5. Hold your own jam. Register for an official jam site (opens in October) and invite a few jammers to come make games for a weekend. See FAQ for more information.
  6. Participate yourself as a jammer. There's nothing like being there. You will have fun and learn something along the way.
  7. Follow us, friend us, subscribe to our newsletter and help publicize #GGJ16 !
