House parties are a fun way to participate in virtual or hybrid events as a group. Everyone will be able to watch the event together but will donate or bid on their personal devices. Please see below for a few helpful tips to make your house party a success!
- Stream the event on your television via casting or airplay with these simple instructions
- Have all attendees either visit the event site URL (event.gives/YOURKEYWORD) and also go to this link on the device linked to the television. Everyone will be able to watch the event on the television and then can bid or donate from their individual mobile device
- Be sure to have your attendees turn off the event's video stream on their individual devices by clicking on the button shown in the top right corner below. As you see, even though the video stream is turned off, the buttons to bid or donate will still appear on the screen.
- If anyone needs to turn the video back on their phone, they can do so by clicking the same button as before located in the top right corner of the video feed. The button will appear as below when the video stream is turned back on.
