What is 10x10 about?
10x10's mission is to fight apathy & engender a culture of giving & philanthropy within Australia's young professional & creative communities. This is achieved through live crowdfunding, dragons den-style events that provide a forum for participants to give to young and emerging charities in a scalable and sustainable way.
How does it work?
1. 10 volunteer committee members organise a charity event (1 x venue, 3 x charities, 3 x dragons, food & drink).
2. Each committee member invites at least 10 of their friends to purchase a $100 ticket (or more) to attend the event (10x10... get it?) creating a pool of at least $10K.
3. Upon arrival, each attendee is given 'Charity Dollars' equal to the value of their ticket.
4. 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.
5. Each attendee then decides directly who they want to give their ‘Charity Dollars’ to.
6. Charities receive 100% of the funds raised minus a 7.5% project fee to 10x10 to cover admin and overhead costs.
7. 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.
The hope of the Melbourne Period Project is to provide care, support and sanitary products for homeless women and transgender people. They aim to find 100 women to act as sister sponsors and sponsor a homeless woman or transgender person though her period. The concept is based on the idea that each time you get your period, it's a reminder to donate one pack of sanitary products to the Melbourne Period Project, or $5 and for sanitary items to be purchased on your behalf.

The companionship and therapeutic value of pets is immeasurable. That’s why Pets of the Homeless are firm believers that the more we can do for the animals, the greater their human’s chances of improving their situation over time. Pets of the Homeless Australia provides food, veterinary care and other support to the pets of people experiencing or facing homelessness.
They provide this support in a judgement-free environment so that every person experiencing or facing homelessness can feel supported in their actions to care for and stay with their pet. They are committed to keeping people united with their companion and reducing the number of healthy pets that are surrendered to shelters and euthanised due to financial hardship.
