Win Your Favourite Charity A Prize Worth $17,500 ‘Our Heroes Need Heroes’

We launched the ‘our Heroes Need Heroes’ initiative on Tuesday 24th of June, seeking to inspire everyone to actively promote the good work of their favourite charity. We set up an easy way for anyone to nominate and tell all their friends about the great work your favourite charity does, through the ‘Our Heroes Need Heroes’ facebook app, with full sharable functions. The aim is to win your favourite charity a holiday in Phuket worth $17,500, with accommodation in a luxury villa.

The charity that tallies up the most number of votes by 1st of August, wins the holiday to be auctioned at their next fundraising event. Ezybidz are providing the entire package.

The premise of the initiative is charities contribute immensely to society. Whether ensuring the health and wellbeing of children, animals, the elderly, environment, poverty-stricken communities, on rescue missions or providing local sporting opportunities, these organisations are always there to help. In essence Ezybidz feel charities are the everyday hero.

The initiative aims to provide a platform where anyone can make a difference for these organisations. Ezybidz Founder Michael Dever said, “There are 600,000 registered charities in Australia, and in our busy lives, we can forget the good work they do. This is our way of showing appreciation.” “I am fortunate enough to work with a number of great organisations around Australia, which makes running this initiative very rewarding.”

Creating An Atmosphere Of Generosity At Your Gala Fundraising Event

The environment we are in can affect our mood and even our willingness to give. It has been scientifically documented that a clean, fresh smelling room will stimulate a sense of generosity that results in more money being donated to charity. Your guests are in your realm of influence for several hours, so what are some other ways you can control the environment to put them in the mood to give?

People

  • treating your guests with respect and making them feel special
  • modelling generous behaviour by being generous towards your guests
  • encouraging family attendance – according to the NY Times, men become more generous in the presence of a female family member, particularly daughters
  • demonstrating gratitude for people’s generosity

Places

  • creating a fun environment
  • ensuring the room has a clean, fresh smell like citrus
  • using colour – gold arouses a sense of compassion, generosity and giving

Things

  • being specific about what you are fundraising for and how much you need to achieve this
  • telling your story effectively and delivering an emotional plea for help
  • creating a personal connection/bond between the guest and your cause

The list could go on. Electronic bidding is another way you can make guests feel special and connected while having fun, leading to more bidding and generosity. For information about creating an atmosphere of generosity at your gala fundraising event, contact Ezybidz on 1300 399 243.
