Campaign Makes 'Cents' for Charities
23 October 2012 at 10:15 am

A Not for Profit volunteer organisation that asked Australians to donate their spare five cent coins is calling for charities to register to benefit from its 2013 campaign.

For five weeks in May 2012 the 5cent campaign called on Australians from Fitzroy to Fly Creek to look underneath their couch cushions, inside their cars and through their piggy banks to collect any 5 cent pieces they had for YGAP’s 5cent campaign.

Organisers says more than 1 million 5c coins collected to support charities globally.

“In isolation a 5 cent coin is almost worthless. But with $150 million worth of these little silver pieces in circulation, our small change can create lasting change globally,” YGAP Project Analyst Angela Minn said.

The 2012 campaign awarded the Australian funds to Second Bite which redistributes surplus fresh food to community food programs around Australia.

“Based on the success of the 2012 campaign we believe we will have between $15,000 and $20,000 available for an Australian charity next year,” Minn said.

Expressions of interest from Australian charities are now open.

The campaign is open to Australian registered charities involved in youth education program. The funds must only be used within Australia.

For more information on the 5cent campaign, visit fivecent.com.au. For more information on how to apply, please go to http://tinyurl.com/ck7wc6s.

Applications close at 5.00pm on Friday November 2, 2012.
