10×10 SYDNEY 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 ‘Shark Tank’ 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.
Deadly Connections is an Aboriginal Community Led, Not For Profit Organisation that breaks the cycles of disadvantage and trauma to directly address the over-representation of Aboriginal people in the child protection and justice system/s.
Their community centred, culturally responsive, holistic programs develop stronger, safer, communities, creating deadly connections and more positive futures, for communities, families, individuals and kids.
Heart On My Sleeve is a mental health social movement that empowers people to be real about how they feel. They help people rewrite their toxic narratives by learning to love themselves through the power of storytelling.
Their mission is to remove the barriers to emotional healing, which is often the shame, guilt and loneliness of suffering in silence. Their vision is to create a more authentic society, where it is the norm to be real, so we no longer have to hide from ourselves or others.
One Eighty was founded by Paris Jeffcoat and Leanne Westlake in response to a number of youth suicides that were occurring on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. In particular, it was the suicides of two young men in Paris’ cohort from high school – that catalysed the creation of the organisation.
Knowing that suicide is preventable, Paris Jeffcoat and Samantha Callender have been running the organisation together since 2017. The young founders have a vision for a future free of youth suicide.
