10x10’s MISSION

To empower the next generation of giving


  1. 10 volunteer committee members organise a charity event (1 x venue, 3 x charities, 1 x dragon, food & drink).
  2. 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.
  3. Upon arrival, each attendee is given 'Charity Dollars' equal to the value of their ‘Pledge’.
  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 10% 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.


Barayamal was founded in 2016 by Dean Foley, a young indigenous man from Gunnedah. The charity aims to inspire, educate and support Indigenous youth and budding entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams and create a better world for all who live in it. 

According to the latest  government employment study, the Indigenous unemployment rate is currently 21%, an increase of 4.3 percentage points since 2008, and is 4 times the current non-Indigenous unemployment rate of 5%. Through disempowerment and lack of opportunity, the Indigenous community in Australia has the highest rate of suicide of any community in the world. By empowering (ethical) Indigenous Entrepreneurs Barayamal wants to help re-shape these statistics and our communities.

Barayamal is 100% Indigenous owned and managed charity that inspires, educates and supports Indigenous Entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams and create a better world for all who live in it. Barayamal plans to show the world that Indigenous entrepreneurs exist and they can also build global businesses.


The John Mac Foundation is a charity working to educate and empower refugees and people whose lives have been interrupted by war. Like many boys of his generation, John Mac fought in the Sudanese People’s Liberation Army from a very young age. But unlike many, John managed to escape with his 12-year-old brother Deng to make a life for himself and his family in Western Sydney.

John Mac became the first Sudanese refugee to graduate from Western Sydney University in Australia. However, despite his qualifications, John was unable to find meaningful employment in Sydney and ended up returning to South Sudan where he was tragically killed.

Established in 2016, the John Mac Foundation aims to continue the legacy of their namesake, whose story you will hear on the night, and also address the issues that held him back during his life.


Dandelion Support Network is a charity run by volunteers who accept, sort, and safety check nursery items, clothes, toys and linen for babies and children. Once prepared, the donations are then passed on to families in need through referrals from social workers at hospitals and welfare agencies.

Dandelion’s vision is that all babies and children have access to nursery items essential for their safety, well-being and development and they achieve this while reducing the environmental footprint of the community. As they do not receive any government funding, they rely on volunteers and the generosity of the community for donations to allow them to continue their work.



 Fred Schebesta is the cofounder and director of finder.com.au – one of Australia's largest comparison websites.  Aside from his role as entrepreneur and award winning business leader, Fred is also an accomplished author, keynote speaker and serves as mentor for several organisations focusing on students seeking to start or grow a business.  Fred is also actively involved in giving back, from regular engagements with Oz Harvest to hosting a charity event that raised thousands to participating in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout.
