Join us in raising funds for three incredible charities in recognition of International Women’s Day 2021 – which is celebrating the tremendous efforts by women around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
10×10 AUCKLAND is powered by a group of young professionals who have volunteered their time and resources to launch a crowdfunding event to support charities doing compelling community work.
10×10 connects volunteers at a local community level and together they produce live crowdfunding ‘Dragon’s Den’ style events which are attended by 100+ people. Each committee identifies three grassroots charities and invites them to pitch for funds from the event audience.
The event is supported by 10×10 – a 100% volunteer run organisation working to empower a new generation of passionate philanthropists and create a sustainable movement for grassroots giving.
So, how does the event work? All you have to do is:
- Make a pledge. Your pledge is your tax deductible donation which doubles as your ticket.
- Come along to the event (new date TBC)
- Learn about three amazing charities
- Vote for the charities you want your pledge to support
- Maybe bid on an auction item, become a volunteer, or just have a great evening in support of a great cause!
Auckland Women’s Centre help over 3,800 women every year by offering crisis intervention, support, information, advice and referral for emergency housing, women’s refuge, rape counselling, child abuse reporting, abortion, parenting and more.
They envision a society where women are well resourced and empowered within their communities to achieve equity, safety and well-being, and are committed to working for change for women from feminist perspectives.
The Kindness Collective is a Community Resource Network with a large group of people choosing to make kindness a priority. They are a match-making service, matching those with need to those with more to share. They work with numerous charities, social agencies, organisations and community groups by meeting needs in the community with resources, tools, time and money.
It’s easy to be kind and it’s easy to help. The Kindness Collective makes it simple for people to do both.
Woven Earth work with the New Zealand Police, Victim Support, Shine and Refuges to help family violence survivors rebuild their lives by furnishing their houses with love and dignity to create a home for them to start the next chapter of their lives.
Knowing that there is a Woven Earth community working to offer the practical support survivors of family violence need to rebuild their lives gives a gift of hope and belief in the goodness that exists in Aotearoa!
