Virtual Events in Australia and New Zealand
We're incredibly proud of our network of affiliates and partners all over the world; civil society organisations using TFN's live crowdfunding model to drive positive change in their communities. Two of these are TFN Australia and TFN New Zealand - the only other independent 'Funding Networks' in the world. Last month, they both held their first ever live virtual events - and what a success they were!
TFN New Zealand went live on 21 April, before the end of the lockdown in New Zealand. The event raised over NZ$62,000 for three fantastic charities, and has so far been viewed over 7,000 times on Facebook.
TFN Australia followed on 29 April, with a live crowdfunding event that raised over AU$180,000 and was attended by more than 200 people. Event host, Jacinta Parsons and presenter Matt Runnells, Founder of Mindfull Aus, are pictured right. TFN Australia will be holding their next virtual event on 25th June.
Well done to Tim Pare, Director of TFN NZ, and to Julie McDonald, Kristen Lark and all the team in Australia! And if you have family and friends Down Under, please do suggest they get involved in the brilliant work of our sister organisations.
