To Empower the Next Generation of Giving
HOW DOES IT WORK?
- 10 volunteer committee members organise a charity event (1 x venue, 3 x charities, 1 x dragons, food & drink).
- Each committee member invites at least 10 of their friends to make a $100 pledge (or more) to attend the event (10x10... get it?) creating a pool of at least $10K.
- Upon arrival, each attendee is given 'Charity Dollars' equal to the value of their ‘Pledge’.
- After drinks and canapes, attendees are seated to watch the #Dragonforgood question the three chosen charities who pitch, to you the audience, their cause, model and impact.
- Each attendee then decides directly who they want to give their ‘Charity Dollars’ to.
- Charities receive 100% of the funds raised minus a 10% project fee to 10x10 to cover admin and overhead costs.
- You will then receive a tax deductible receipt 4-6 weeks from the charity post the event.
Listed below are the three charities that will be pitching on the night.

Alive is a community-driven organisation of individuals and partners committed to end youth suicide. Inspiring and supporting young Australians at risk of suicide to feel alive and ultimately choose life through the engagement of our suicide intervention support services and initiatives. These exciting programs utilize a unique blend of lessons delivered in short activity based workshops in schools and clubs across Australia working with vulnerable youth and young adults. Our completely unique and alternative therapeutic physical activities are used to reinforce the key message of wellbeing principles and life skills. Alive uses activities such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts, Equine and Farm therapy, art and team building activities to engage the students throughout the delivery. The integrated blend of Alive’s delivery methods ensures that participants are learning life lessons in a way that is fun, engaging and applicable. The aim of ALIVE is to build more resilient young people and communities. Our education support programs train and upskill parents teachers and coaches to be more equipped to navigate the tough stuff. Our projects are designed to enhance the resilience, self-esteem, values and tools to help young people to thrive in life.
OUR MISSION is to reduce and ultimately eliminate youth suicide. We are experiencing a frightening epidemic here in Australia, with suicide now the number one leading cause of death, and our aim is to provide education, and intervention where suicide is a risk and prevent it.
OUR PURPOSE is to work collaboratively as a community providing education to aid suicide prevention and support directly to those young people identified at risk of suicide. Helping them create a life worth living for. Thriving individuals, thriving communities.
RizeUp Australia is a community-driven organisation dedicated to providing practical relief to those affected by domestic and family violence. We work in partnership with domestic violence agencies to enhance the service options that they provide to those that have experienced domestic or family violence. One way our team of volunteers affect change is by providing practical assistance in the form of household donations through community involvement. Typically, when women (alone or with child) have fled a domestic violence situation, either voluntarily or via police escort, they seek solace or care in a refuge. After 12 weeks, the family are supported by the refuge to source independent accommodation. Prior to the family moving out, the refuge or service will liaise with RizeUp who in-turn coordinates the creation of a fully furnished Home. The Home transformation happens within 5 hours so the family can move in immediately which allows for another family in crisis to be placed in refuge. The team leader and their ‘RizeUp Ready’ volunteers coordinate the home transformation by fitting the house out with furniture, linen, kitchenware, toiletries, curtains and appliances. In true altruistic fashion, the RizeUp team never meet the families that are provided with support.
