In our last newsletter we announced that WCHM had been selected to pitch at The Funding Network live crowdfunding event on September 21 in Canberra! TFN is an event based collective giving model where local people come together in a social setting to support serious projects and help them reach their funding targets. WCHM’s CEO was one of three who pitched to the group for donations to our local ACT response, the Assistance Beyond Crisis (ABC) microfinance facility. Over $79,000 was pledged from a very lively crowd of generous Canberrans, with over $27,000 being donated to the ABC. GG’s Flowers, & Mental Illness Education ACT also received donations of over $25,000 each.
