Oxventure raising money for Mind with Xmas charity single

Livestream from Outside Xbox and Outside Xtra raised 40k, single is now on sale

The teams behind Outside Xbox and Outside Xtra smashed a £10,000 funding target during a charity livestream to raise money for the mental health charity Mind.

The livestream was conducted by a mixture of the Outside Xbox and Outside Xtra teams, as the Dungeons and Dragons group The Oxventurers Guild. Collectively, they are launching a charity Christmas single, and used Twitch to raise awareness around their efforts.

From a £10,000 JustGiving target, the group raised £35,000 during the livestream, and that total has climbed to almost £40,000 at the time of writing.

Donations are still open, but it's possible to contribute by purchasing a copy of the D&D themed charity single, Literally Everyone Else in the World.

"We're truly grateful for anything you can give," Oxventures said. "So this holiday season, don't be a Dob and throw your money into a lake. Use it to make a difference to the lives of people suffering with mental health issues."

The single is available to buy and stream from iTunes, Amazon Music, Google Play, Spotify and other stores for £0.99. It is currently number one on the Amazon music list.
