In an ambitious event that is believed to have never been done in Australia before, Goran ‘Tiny’ Srejic one of the co-founders of The Green Shed had a goal to raise funds for charity and offer an incentive to those who fundraise.
Tiny’s Car Challenge is part of a new endeavour for Tiny as part of Tiny’s 2.5 where he hopes to eventually raise 2.5 million dollars for charity over five years.
His aim for the Car Challenge was to raise one million dollars.
Firstly, a call went out to charities, to register as a way to generate funds especially during the current tough conditions caused by the pandemic. The idea then was to have people register and choose a charity to support by fundraising for them.
For the people fundraising there was an incentive, a way to encourage people who normally wouldn’t fundraise, a way to thank them for taking the time to raise funds, give them a pat on the back and show appreciation by offering the opportunity to the top twenty fundraisers to win a car.
The top twenty fundraisers overall (not the charity) at the end of a three-week period 1st to 21st August would then get to compete to see who could keep their hand on a car and be the last one standing and get to drive away in the car.
Dainere’s Rainbow was one of the charity groups registered that people could select to fundraise for. There were two groups of people who selected to raise funds for Dainere’s Rainbow and they raised $1936.00 and $25.00, a total of $1961.00 which we are so extremely humbled and ever so grateful for.
Anne and David Gledhill who raised $1936.00 were also in the Top Twenty Fundraisers coming in 9th place. They now have the opportunity to win the car. That challenge will take place on 3rd September at Canberra Outlet Centre.
