50 for 50 is about coming together to do something different, something unexpected. It's about changing the mindset that we GEN-Y folk (under 35) don’t care about the community. That we’re a bunch of selfish, entitled young adults. Project 50 for 50 is here to provide every day people with an opportunity to find PURPOSE and to enact long-lasting CHANGE.
over two phases and in just 18 months, more than 80 change-makers came together to raise $4.5 million and heaps of awareness for more than 60 lesser-known charities. through a series of fundraising activities that included gigs, a flea market, private dinners, charity runs and more, our youths were incredibly motivated to do their best for their chosen charities.
