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 dragon, 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.
