Step-Up For Students: Christmas Gala
Step Up For Students is a Not-Profit organization that supports international students in Australia facing unprecedented financial challenges due to the coronavirus pandemic and other circumstances out of our control.
Christmas is near, with 23 days left to go! We couldn't be more excited to be feeling the Christmas joy with our series of Christmas Gala Events.
charityBay is excited to be hosting an online 'Christmas Gala' for Step Up For Students, which will run from Wednesday 9/12/20 - until Friday 18/12/20. For this Christmas season, let's spread that same Christmas spirit and love to those who need it most, so tune in on Wednesday on the 9th, to have a chance at bidding/winning items. Here are some of the many unique item/experiences available for grabs:
- A 90-minute cooking lesson specialising in Columbian cuisine - This culinary class helps you learn the skills and techniques when it comes to Columbian cuisine. Facilitated by a famous Columbian chef, you will learn first hand how to prepare and cook signature dishes in the comfort of your own home.
- A 45-minute private concert from Cumva - Cumva will come to your home or event, where the band will perform a series of songs for your audience or family's entertainment.
Step Up For Students supports international students in Australia facing unprecedented financial challenges due to the coronavirus pandemic and other circumstances out of their control. With a small team of volunteers, they operate around Australia to connect students with donors who can provide them with the opportunity to satisfy their basic needs through tax-deductible donations.
They support international students with a periodic gift card that they can only spend on food. This way, they will never miss out on the most essential goods and ensure that the resources are being used rightly.
Over the next few weeks, charityBay will be hosting a series of online 'Christmas Galas' for selected charities. The event supports charities by auctioning off items on our platform, which then allows the buyer/bidder to bid on unique items, and then the funds generated, will go to that particular charity. Come along this Wednesday to support Step-Up for Students, by bidding on an item that gives twice this Christmas.
