With the COVID-19 pandemic causing the suspension of the 2020 National Rugby League (NRL) season, the Brisbane Broncos have partnered with GIVIT donating jerseys to help raise money for those in need.
The online charity’s logo is found on the front of the Broncos jersey, where each player has signed their personal jersey and donated it to GIVIT. GIVIT CEO Sarah Tennant, said, “This is your chance to own a one-of-a-kind jersey and help us continue our work across Australia. We’re helping charities, schools and community groups support vulnerable people and those who find themselves suddenly without a job due to Coronavirus containment measures. We’re all about inspiring donors to give the smart way, through our innovative and easy to use online donation platform at givit.org.au.”
The charity predominantly supports vulnerable Australians when needed, working with more than 3200 support organisations and coordinating 1.6 million donated items. “We ensure people get what they need when they need it most – whether recovering from a disaster event, or experiencing hardship due to circumstances such as bushfires, drought, domestic and family violence, homelessness, disability, and mental health,” Tennant said.
GIVIT captures all offers of goods and services online, removing the need for charities and services to sort, store and dispose of unsolicited donations, saving valuable resources. An online auction is being held from Friday 27 March through to Sunday 5 April via GIVIT’s Ebay shop.
