To celebrate 90 years of the ABC connecting communities, ABC Australia partnered with us to encourage Australians to come together and make a pledge: 90 minutes of kindness in your community.
Over the course of the #ABC90for90 campaign, Australians pledged 229,860 minutes of volunteering, well exceeding ABC Australia’s goal of 100,000 minutes.
Thank you to everyone who has pledged 90 minutes of kindness by volunteering your time and skills to a cause you care about. Every minute makes a difference.
The power of volunteering is felt throughout every community in Australia and allows charities and organisations to be able to operate and support communities effectively.
By pledging 90 minutes of your time, you have joined the millions of Australians who contribute to volunteering across the nation. If you have been inspired by volunteering and would like to investigate more ways to contribute to your community, head to: GoVolunteer or Seek Volunteer
