HOW DOES IT WORK?
- 10 volunteer committee members organise a charity event (1 x venue, 3 x charities, 3 x dragon, food & drink).
- Each committee member invites at least 10 of their friends, family and colleagues to attend the event (10 x 10... get it?), each pay HK$1,000 or more to attend the event, creating a pool of at least HK$100,000. 100% of your ticket price is donated to the charity of your choice.
- 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 3 #Dragonsforgood 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 7.5% 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.
Hong Kong has hosted 2 events thus far, with the latter breaking 10X10 records raising a phenomenal HK$387,921 in one night. This time we’re aiming even higher!
EMERGING HONG KONG
For this event the committee members have chosen 3 exceptional charities, all who are very young in their life cycle, but extremely keen to grow and emerge at the forefront of Hong Kong's charity sector.
The three charities that will be pitching on the evening are:
- 1. Teen's Key
- 2. Impact HK
- 3. Free To Run
Teen's Key support all marginalized young women and girls, particularly focussing on displaced teenage girls vulnerable to entering into prostitution and those who are already in work in the sex industry. Their 'Keys for Girls' program offers career planning and support for girls in the sex industry to return to education or employment, equipping these vulnerable young girls with the life skills, knowledge and positive social network that will help them rebuild their own lives.
ImpactHK is dedicated to providing care and support for the homeless and underprivileged in Hong Kong. It is a movement that was created through kindness, empathy and action and has grown into a humanitarian movement involving thousands of volunteers coming together in their spare time to make a difference for the less fortunate in Hong Kong. Each month they organize more than 20 'Kindness Walks' providing the homeless with food, drinks, supplies, a free laundry service, and most importantly - friendship. Impact HK recently starting a fundraising campaign to open up a facility where care, counselling, and job training programs are offered to the homeless to truly change their lives.
Free To Run
Free to Run’s mission is to rehabilitate Hong Kong’s vulnerable refugee and asylum seekers, specifically women, through sports and education. Through sports, Free to Run helps participants rebuild their mental and physical strength, & creates a safe and supportive environment in which they can recover from past traumas, build networks of support and improve their skills for a more hopeful future. Free to Run obtained charitable status in Hong Kong in 2016 and assists 55 refugees and asylum seekers including 35 women, 20 men and 17 children.
