In 14 days you raised $54,544.00 for kindness.
We are so incredibly overwhelmed with the support we received from so many different people, brands and businesses for our first crowdfunding campaign to complete 100 Acts of Kindness all across the country.
It takes a lot of people to raise a little charity over $54, 544.00 and we are really grateful to everyone that helped, supported, donated and shared.
There’s a so many different people to thank but firstly we want to thank Tim Pare and The Funding Network for choosing us to have a spot in this program.
Tim’s belief in the Kindness Collective and proactive support in the lead-up and during the campaign was invaluable and we wouldn’t have raised such an incredible amount of money without him and the platform. Thank you Tim, we are so stoked to have you on team kindness!
Thank you to Mel, Amy and Lizzy from Givealittle for the huge amount of work before and during the campaign to make it all happen. Really appreciate all the work the three of you did for us to be successful.
Thank you to Tina and Josh Comrie for all your thought, effort, attention, resource and financial support with the campaign, the charity and me!
In no particular order or importance and huge apologies if I’ve missed you out, my middle-age memory isn’t so sharp anymore!

We will be finishing up on World Kindness Day, Sunday 13th November, 2022 with something really special.
Thank you so much again.
