What is 10×10 about?
10×10’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 – Ten event committee members organise a charity event (1 x venue, 3 x charities, 1 x dragon, food & drink).
2 – Each committee member invites ten of their friends to each contribute $100 or more to attend the event (10 x 10… get it?), creating a pool of at least $10,000
3 – Upon arrival at the event the attendees are given ‘Charity Dollars’ equal to their $100 ticket.
4 – At least 100 patrons attend to watch three charities pitch their cause, model and impact – all with a dragon who questions the charities in front of the audience.
5 – Each audience member then gets to put their charity dollars towards the charity of their choice.
