10×10’s mission is to engender a culture of giving and philanthropy in young professional and creative communities around the globe.
THIS IS THE PROBLEM…. There are thousands of charities – how do you know where to start? How do you know where your money’s going? People tend not to have enough time to find out what’s out there, let alone whether they’re legit. They’re not all millionaires so how can they make a difference?
THIS IS THE 10 X 10 SOLUTION…. 10 x 10 picks out three charities, which it thinks are changing things up in how they’re working on complicated social issues in our communities. It does the due diligence on them so it knows they are of a scale where the collective contribution will make an impact – and that the funds will be fully leveraged to bring about social change.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT…. Once three charities have been selected, the 10×10 committee of 10 people then brings a minimum of 100 people together for an evening event, each guest contributing £80 in advance – so that collectively the £80 is going to turn into £8000 (at least!). At the event, guests are then given their £80 back in the form of tokens to allocate to any of the three charities over the course of the evening.
Each of the three charities has five minutes to deliver their pitch in the style of the popular UK TV show, Dragons’ Den. They’ll be pitching to the audience and to the resident Dragons for the evening. The Dragons will question each charity about their pitch and business model. When all the pitches are done, the audience decide who and how much to donate their tokens based on whose pitches or cause inspired them the most. The pooled funds will then be distributed to the charities based on the tallied up contributions.
