A global and Australian first, Giving Heroes is a platform that connects young people with causes they are passionate about and supports them to be active changemakers.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to all the kids and families who logged on to join our first Giving Heroes Virtual Live Crowdfunding Event on Saturday 18 June 2022!
We are honoured to have witnessed such amazing young people who worked so hard to raise funds and donate their time and money to three inspiring charities!
Together, we raised $42,046 (and counting!) for three non-profits helping kids across Australia!
The amounts pledged were:
A special thank you to our funding and matching partners, Waratah Education Foundation, The Snow Foundation and Australian Communities Foundation, for their wonderful support and generosity and to our promotional partners, Philanthropy Australia, Kids Giving Back and Kids in Philanthropy.
Thank you and congratulations to Juliette, Bronwyn, Susanne and Ruby for giving us all a chance to learn more about your life-changing work helping kids.

Eat Up delivers school lunches to kids when they might not be able to get one from home.
Some families can’t afford to buy food, which means kids arrive at school without lunch. But Eat Up makes sure that no child goes hungry. For every $10 raised by a Giving Hero, Eat Up will be able to buy 10 lunches.
