Ticket stubs feeding hungry bubs: Humanitix helps OzHarvest provide 100,000 meals to people in need.



Thanks to valuable funds raised from Humanitix’s not-for-profit ticketing platform, 100,000 meals can now be delivered by OzHarvest to help feed Aussie families in need.


Humanitix gives event impact, as organisers use the platform to sell tickets, with booking fees going towards closing the education gap. One project, the Humanitix Nutrition For School Children program, works with delivery partners around the world to make sure no child goes to school hungry.   

 

Adam McCurdie, Co-CEO at Humanitix says the positive impact from is growing as more organisers use the platform.  “We’re a unique charity in that we don’t ask for donations. We just ask event organisers to run their awesome event on our platform – their booking fees can change lives.”


 “At Humanitix we believe education is the ticket to opportunity. With access to primary and secondary schooling, and the support needed to stay in school, kids live healthier, more fulfilling lives. They can escape the traps of poverty. Our programs include scholarships for Indigenous students, education programs for young girls and nourishing Aussie kids and their families, through the great work of OzHarvest.”


Ronni Kahn AO, Founder and CEO of OzHarvest said education is essential to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty for vulnerable people.  “OzHarvest relies on the amazing support of like-minded organisations like Humanitix to help keep our wheels turning and whilst food rescue fills hungry bellies, education transforms lives.  We are thrilled to work with Humanitix, who share our vision for a better world, and are committed to making positive change.”


Event organisers love that their events can have such an impact. Says Group Marketing Manager Mikaila Faber from The Sydney Collective: “One of the things we’re passionate about at The Sydney Collective is giving back to our local communities. Through Humanitix we’re able to run events like our Melbourne Cup and New Years Eve event, and then direct the booking fees to projects we truly care about. Humanitix has been a dream to use and are always there to lend a helping hand.”


Humanitix is now the fastest growing ticketing platform in Australia, and has contributed more than $350,000 to education programs. More and more event organisers are choosing to add purpose their events, as well as enjoying the price point, unique features and charity status of the Humanitix platform.
