Ready, set, #givingtuesday!
But what’s been going on in 2013?
Well, we have been busy laying the groundwork: Engaging corporate donors; signing up charities ready to accept donations; and putting in place all the logistical partners to make it happen. Our board of directors has formed and met, and a panel of highly skilled and networked advisers has been giving our fearless founder Alison much needed support. Finally, a league of extraordinary volunteers with a little magic on their side has been getting everything ready for today. Thanks so much to everyone involved. 🙂
So we’re nearly ready for business. But we still need an initial injection of start-up cash to transfer the new US technology platform to Australia and actually begin work. Hence this crowdfunding and publicity campaign “Your $5 multiplied”.
Today is #givingtuesday, a new campaign to create a day each year that celebrates and supports the work of charities and not-for-profits. So, starting today and running into Christmas, we’re are asking everyone to donate $5 in the knowledge that this will generate $150 of baby products, toys, clothes, shoes and other products for those most in need.
