10x10 Sydney Bushfire Relief

Part charity event, part cocktail party.

10x10 is a youth- and volunteer-led organisation encouraging the next generation to get involved in philanthropy. How it does this, however, is a little different — it raises money for charities by hosting interactive, live crowdfunding events. And its next one is a special bushfire relief edition happening in Sydney.

On Thursday, February 6, the event will put money directly into the hands of three local charities — Science for Wildlife, CHIRF and Blaze Aid — doing real and essential work for fire-affected areas, wildlife and communities. All three organisations are already working to make a huge difference to animals and people affected by Australia's bushfire crisis and, on the night, will talk about their work — and how you can pitch in, too.

So, how do you help? First, you head to 10x10's ticketing website to make a pledge of $100 or more (this amount will be converted into "Charity Dollars" and is also your ticket). Next, you rock up to the event, where the three charities will pitch their causes to the crowd. Finally, you decide what charity you want your pledge, or "Charity Dollars", to go to and bam — a little more goodness is created in the world and a charity nabs some much-needed funds.

You'll also have the chance to sip wine, snack on complimentary bites and chat to like-minded, philanthropic folk at the event. So think of it as a fundraiser-meets-cocktail party (without the starched collars and ballgowns).

If you feel like charities are more in need of your dollars than you and your avocado toast (they are), get amongst it — you can learn about the pitching charities and make your tax-deductible pledges here.
