By | Amazing Supporters, Blog, Fundraising, Our amazing team | No Comments

It’s only February, but there’s a LOT happening at One Girl HQ. This year we’re growing and hoping to provide access to education for more girls than ever before. But here’s the thing – we can’t do it alone. We need YOU if we’re going to get there. Here are 6 ways that you can help us this year. 1. Buy your gifts at the One Girl shop! Is there anything better than a one stop shop for gifts for family, friends and…let’s be real…ourselves? We’ve been filling the One Girl Shop with all new goodies for 2017 including tote…

Meet the girl who took on Everest to educate girls

By | Amazing Supporters, Challenges, Fundraising | No Comments

We are constantly inspired by our incredible community. Every day you blow us away with your passion, your creativity, and your enthusiasm. And the lengths (and heights!) you’ll go to in order to educate girls.  While most of us were vegging out, nursing food comas, or just generally eating, drinking and merry-making over the festive season, Georgia was taking on something epic. She was trekking to Everest Base Camp and she was doing it to educate girls. Starting with a goal of raising $900 to educate 3 girls – Georgia was immediately overwhelmed with the support she got.

One Girl Gala : A Night To Dream

By | Blog, Events, Fundraising | One Comment

Last Saturday night in an amazing warehouse space in Melbourne, something incredible happened. Something that took months of planning, design, preparation (and I’ll admit it – a little panic). We held our annual One Girl Gala – and it was a stunning, inspiring, ridiculously fun night. We set out to create a night filled with dreams, the most inspiring stories, and some sneaky surprises for our amazing community. And we did just that. We created a Night to Dream. When you’re young, the world is your oyster. You can be a ballerina, an astronaut, a cowboy if you want! But…

How many cents in the dollar actually go to helping the girls you work with?

By | Administration Costs, Amazing Supporters, Blog, Fundraising, Our amazing team, Setting up a non-profit | 2 Comments

So this is the second blog post in our #AskACharity series – and it’s a great question! And one that is often asked in a variety of different ways. How much money get’s spent on admin? Fundraising? Operations? How much of what you raise actually helps the girls? Our answer to these questions? All of it. EVERY cent of the dollar you donate goes towards helping the girls we work with – it’s just that some of it goes more directly to helping the girls than others. We know that many people get uncomfortable around admin / fundraising and operation…
