Every meeting will provide a brand-new wardrobe to 140 people. 45 minutes can help to empower and restore dignity and hope to many individuals experiencing vulnerability.
Our founder, Andie Halas, saw the potential for unsold new clothing to be given to people in need, whilst also protecting the environment by saving these items from landfill.
Today, Thread Together clothes thousands of people with dignity and choice across the country every week. We do this in a variety of ways to ensure all clients are given an authentic and dignified experience. To achieve this, we partner with hundreds of fashion brands, a network of charities & social service agencies, and thousands of volunteers. Thread Together is unique in that we keep clothing in circulation, and we are recognised by the fashion industry as the highest ethical response to fashion excess.
The clothes we choose to wear not only protect us from the elements but reflect and affect our confidence and self-esteem.
In Australia one in eight adults and one in six children do not have adequate access to essential clothing. Circumstances and disadvantages should not prevent people from accessing clothing to allow them to realise their full potential. Thread Together addresses this uncomfortable truth by providing new clothes to those in need. This includes women escaping domestic violence, homeless adults and children, and those who just arrived in the country seeking refuge.
New clothing is also provided to the long-term unemployed, seeking equal standing when going to an interview, those coming out of long-term health care, and many who are rebuilding their lives after being devastated by the droughts, the recent bushfires and now the pandemic. For as little as $5, Thread Together can provide a brand-new wardrobe of clothing to a person in need. So every meeting will provide a brand-new wardrobe to 140 people.
For approved executives, leaders, and entrepreneurs, meetmagic is absolutely free to join.
All we ask is that you enter our platform with a commitment to engage technology and business subject matter experts to better understand how they can support your next project. So, while it's free to join, the value you'll be creating for charities is exponential - 45mins of your time to explore commercial opportunities means that we donate $700 to a charity of choice. The more meetings, the more we donate.
Our platform is for decision makers with more than 50 operating staff and for entrepreneurs with a strong business plan backed by funding.
If you're a vendor seeking to join, we must warn you, the waiting list is growing. We ask that you be socially minded, operate in technology or business transformation fields, and be open to talking with our Executive members on their terms. That means no hard selling, no laborious product demos, and most of all desire to help our members achieve their goals. If you’re unsure about eligibility, please get in touch with us and we will organise a quick chat to discuss suitability of our platform for you.
The platform does all the work for you.
After you complete your profile you will receive some recommendations and meeting requests. Your new request will outline which company is seeking 45mins of your time; as well as what they wish to discuss. If you decide you would like to meet this company, find out about their solutions, AND ensure $700 is donated to your charity of choice, simply accept the meeting and share when and how.
meetmagic members are focused on building relationships and sharing information, insights, and case studies which may be of mutual interest and value.
The overwhelming benefit is that meetmagic filters out unvetted people and curates commercially advantageous meetings for you, whilst giving to your chosen charity. Unlike in-person conferences or LinkedIn, meetmagic vets everyone that applies and only accepts the highest quality members to the platform. Of the 1000s of leaders, executives and entrepreneurs who already use meetmagic to take their business meetings, 95% of them rated the meeting as an insightful, informative and valuable use of their time.
For individuals from organisations seeking to meet with senior leaders in our community, meetmagic charges an annual subscription fee, as well as a fee for every meeting booked. 70% of each booking fee goes to the charity partner of the senior leaders choice once the meeting has happened.
We are a purpose before profit business.
Our model is a brokerage service, but instead of keeping the fees for our business, we pass them through to our charity partners. We are very clear that 70% of fees paid by our vetted and curated vendors goes straight to charity partners that you select
