There’s nothing like the opportunity to give back to the community in the best way we can. In late May, Woven sponsored a charity event that was a continuation of our good work with The Kickstart Project.
At Woven, we love to support causes like The Kickstart Project and in late May, we sponsored an event in Melbourne hosted by our friends at 10x10 Philanthropy. If you haven’t heard of these legends before, the organisation is on a mission to fight apathy, while engendering a culture of giving and philanthropy in Australia’s young professionals and creatives (in other words, people like you!).
Here’s the deal
Around 140 people watched three charities pitch their causes before being questioned by Alex Oppes (Director, Impact Investing, Social Ventures Australia and Founding Director of Languard Laundry Services) about their audience, their cause as well as their model and impact. Once all three charities were done, those at the event then chose who to give their pledge to.
The not-for-profits involved
The charities at the Melbourne event included The Kickstart Project (they are a Woven client who we helped with their website and are proud to say attracted a lot of interest on the night), Free to Feed and St Kilda Gatehouse.
We’re incredibly happy to report that the event raised a record-breaking $20k for the Melbourne event.
What our team said:
“It was a great event, beautifully hosted and most of all, we’re proud to be there as representatives of Pronto Woven who were one of the event sponsors.”
Kate, one of our team members, helped to put together the Melbourne event as part of her role on the event committee. A number of Woven team members also attended to show their support and those who couldn’t make it, donated to the cause. You can learn more about the evening here.
We’re incredibly proud to support fantastic causes such as The Kickstart Project and look forward to lending our support in the future.
