And the winners are…..

Over 4,000 people voted for 150 Charities and donated in excess of $40,000 to their favourite Charities as part of Australia’s Homeless and Disadvantaged Circle.  And now the votes have been counted and we’re proud to announce the winners are (drumroll please!)

1st Place – $3,000 Prize goes to Knit4Charities Inc

“This competition has been a Godsend thanks to My Giving Circle and UBank and our wonderful supporters!  We’re not the usual run of the mill Charity – we’re a group of crafty people who knit, crochet and sew clothing, toys, blankets etc to give to other charities who, in turn, pass our items on to their clients.  Our members self-fund all of their work including materials and postage to get items to where they’re needed.  This prize will enable us to help with these costs, give back to our wonderful, generous, members which will enable them to do more for those in need across Australia.  I would encourage everyone to support UBank and to participate in any similar My Giving Circle events in the future.   There’s a Post Script to this — we have made a list of Charities (from the competitors) that we will be contacting soon to offer our support, through donations in kind, for them to pass on to their clients.  Thank you for making this possible!!”

2nd Place – $1,000 Prize goes to Pets of the Homeless Ltd

“WE DID IT!.  Wow, wow, wow! We truly have the best supporters in the world, thanks to your donations and votes, we came in 2nd and will be receiving $1000 courtesy of My Giving Circle and UBank. This much needed money will go towards improving our veterinary care service and providing food to Melbourne’s hungry and homeless pets. We will also be one step closer to getting our own warehouse next year!

Thank you once again, we’re truly grateful for your ongoing and active support. Your vote did make a difference and we’re so proud to be part of a community that cares for our cause.

The Giving Circle FAQs

Can anyone join Australia's Homeless and Disadvantaged Giving Circle?

Absolutely.  Anyone with a passion for helping those Australian's less fortunate is invited to join this Giving Circle

How are the winning charities determined?

The winning charities will be determined by the votes made by the members of this Giving Circle.  The charity with the highest number of votes, regardless of size will receive $3k.  The next 2 prizes of $1k each will be reserved for the charities with the most votes AND annual operating income of less than $1m.  The Charities ranked in positions 4th - 8th will each get $100 as long as they have posted on social media about this Giving Circle and received at least 1 vote and 1 donation.  In situations where 2 more charities have the exact same number of votes the prize will be split.

Is there a minimum donation level?

No - this Giving Circle is free to join.  There's no need to make any donation at all, although donations are welcome.  Simply join, nominate your favourite charities and share with your network.

 What happens if I make a donation?

All donations are processed securely via stripe and sent to your charity of choice each month.  When you donate we add an extra vote for every $ donated.  You can make a donation when you join, or via our leaderboard at anytime

How often can I vote?

You can vote once a week for your Favourite Charities and nominate up to 3 each time.   Votes cast more often than once a week are disregarded.  You can donate as often as you want and we add an extra vote for every $ donated, no matter how often you donate.  Please be aware that if you vote using fake email addresses or multiple email addresses your vote will not count.  Even if you see the vote count go up, all fake votes are scrubbed before the prizes are awarded.

Who are the Supporting Charities?
