GIVIT founder thrilled by Floriade announcement

The founder of Australian not-for-profit GIVIT said she is thrilled to be a charity partner for Australia’s biggest celebration of Spring, Floriade, as the charity launches into the Canberra and surrounds with the support of the ACT government.

GIVIT is an online not-for-profit matching public generosity with genuine need by listing offers of public donations along with requests for needed items from almost 1,500 other charities on its unique website,
This new model of giving aims to channel donations from regular Australians and make sure those donations go directly to people who need them most.

CEO and founder of GIVIT, Juliette Wright, said the need for GIVIT in the ACT is enormous.

“More than 22,000 Canberrans are currently living in poverty,” Mrs Wright said, “but we all have something in our homes that’s high quality and that we don’t use any more – through GIVIT, you can donate your pre-loved items to someone who really needs them. Items such as washing machines, fridges, linen and laptops are being requested right now by some of Canberra’s most respected charitable organisations.

“I’m incredibly excited to be officially launching GIVIT into the ACT and the partnership with Floriade is the perfect opportunity to encourage people to have a look around their homes at the items they’re not using any more and list them on our website.

“For Australia’s biggest celebration of Spring, I’d love to see the people of the ACT have a spring clean and turn it into a celebration of giving too.”

During Floriade, GIVIT will host #DonateRejuvenate House where visitors and businesses will have the opportunity to pledge items, which will be donated directly to Canberra’s most vulnerable residents.
