Dublin Donates

Here we are in Dublin at the WebSummit - Europe's "grand conclave for technology's high priests".  For the uninitiated - it's one of the biggest gatherings of innovative startup technology companies in the world and StartOut Australia - a charity - was invited to attend!

We're excited to be here because we think we are as innovative as some of the world's coolest tech companies and we want to something awesome with technology to make sure that people of diverse sexuality and gender (DSG) can access the support they need, wherever they are, whenever they need it.

Sadly though, not everything we need to do is free.  Right now though, especially if you're here with us in Dublin as one of the 20,000 attendees at WebSummit, YOU have the power to help us change lives.  We need to raise around A$100,000 which in Euros is almost nothing!  (Well it's 70,251.66 EUR but who's counting anyway).  That kind of cash will help us build a game changing communication platform to give DSG people in rural, remote and regional areas the ability to talk to someone they can trust.  Someone in their corner to help them navigate the challenges of life as someone who is of diverse sexuality and gender and to reach their potential.

Still sounds like a lot of money?  Well, truthfully it is.  Every cent toward it will make a difference though as we're also working hard to partner with cool technology companies (including the amazing folk at seek.com.au) to bring our costs down and make sure that we build something incredible.

It's about more than the technology though.  We'll also make sure your donations help us to recruit and train amazing mentors and supporters and to support the incredible team of volunteers that make StartOut happen.

This is just the beginning.  Your support today might not deliver you a cash return on investment but you are literally helping to change lives.  

Go on, do something awesome!
