10 x 10 : 21st March 2019 Pivotal Labs, 2nd Floor, The Warehouse, 211 Old Street, London EC1V 9NRThursday 21st March, from 6:00pmSCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM TO BOOK YOUR PLACE AND PLEDGE TO ATTEND! 10x10’s MISSION To empower the next generation of giving. 10x10 London was launched in May 2017 and our first 5 events engaged over 600 young professionals, supported 15 grassroots charities, raised over £135,000 and set a global fundraising record. The events have supported grassroots UK charities providing genuinely innovative solutions to social problems in the UK including combating drug and alcohol addiction, prevention of suicide in young men and professional coaching in prisons to reduce re-offending. Nick Jenkins, founder of Moonpig and a 'Dragon for Good' at our May 2017 event commented: "This type of fundraising model for young professionals is exactly what’s needed in the charity sector at the moment." HOW DOES IT WORK?Ten volunteer committee members organise a charity event, striving to run the event for free including venue, food and drink, to ensure that the maximum amount can be donated to the selected charities. Each committee member invites at least ten of their friends (10x10... get it?) who donate a minimum of £60 to attend, creating a pool of at least £6,000 in donations. There are 3 price options when you make a pledge: £60, £90 and £120. On the night your pledge gets turned into charity vouchers. Three CHARITIES pitch their cause to the audience and describe their model and impact. DRAGONS quiz the charities in front of the audience. Each audience member then gets to put their Charity Pledges towards the charity (or charities) of their choice. 10x10 events in the UK are powered by Raise Your Hands, as the organisations share an aim: inspiring the next generation of donors to give effectively.
