HOW DOES IT WORK?
- Ten event committee members organise a charity event (1 x venue, 3 x charities, 3 x dragons, food & drink).
- Each committee member invites at least ten of their friends to each pay £80 or more to attend the event (10x10... get it?) Creating a pool of at least £8-10k.
- Upon arrival at the event the attendees are given 'Charity Dollars' equal to their £80 ticket.
- Around 150 patrons attend to watch three charities pitch their cause, model and impact - all with 3 dragons who question the charities in front of the audience.
- Each audience member then gets to put their charity dollars towards the charity of their choice.
10x10 London was launched in May 2017, with the first event breaking the 10x10 world record and raising £49,000 for three grassroots UK charities providing genuinely innovative solutions to social problems in the UK: combating drug and alcohol addiction; prevention of suicide in young men; and professional coaching in prisons to reduce re-offending.
With over 165 young professionals attending the event, the UK launch of 10x10 was an overwhelming success, generating great audience engagement and coverage on national radio. Nick Jenkins, founder of Moonpig and real-life Dragon from the Den, commented: This type of fundraising model for young professionals is exactly what’s needed in the charity sector at the moment.
Listed below are the three charities that will be pitching on the night.
There are few initiatives successfully providing long-term solutions in refugee hosting communities. This creates a cycle of dependency on emergency response solutions such as food and clothing donations. Refugee camps place a limit on people's human rights and strip away people's ability to make their own choices about their lives. We look to solutions that restore independence and dignity. The projects we support and run show there is another way to support both refugees and the whole community.
Football Beyond Borders
We are an education charity which uses the power of football to inspire young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to achieve their goals and make their voices heard. We do this by putting a young person’s passion for football at the heart of their learning. Our goal is to use the power of football to create a more equal and inclusive society in which young people from disadvantaged backgrounds have the opportunity to develop the skills, attitude and character to succeed in education, work and public life.
Switchback is a completely different, intensive rehabilitation programme. We help 18 - 30 year old men (Trainees) make real, long-lasting change after their release from prison. We stick by Trainees as they move through the prison gate, encouraging and challenging them to take control, build stable lives for themselves. Our model is centered on a meaningful relationship between Switchback Mentor and Trainee that lasts as long as it takes. Our methods are careful and consistent whilst rolling with the ups and downs of real life. Our vision is that everyone has the opportunity to live a stable and fulfilling life as part of society. Our mission is to change the way offenders think about and participate in society, enabling them to lead stable, rewarding lives.
