About this event

Driven and inspired, Juliette Wright is on a mission to alleviate the effects of poverty across Australia. Establishing an online platform in 2009 to connect those who have with those who need, Juliette is changing how society helps its most vulnerable. Founder and CEO of GIVIT, Juliette created the portal www.givit.org.au to ensure quality goods easily get to where they are most needed by safely connecting and inspiring an online network of givers.

Juliette’s vision, hard work and determination have resulted in almost 240,000 items donated through GIVIT to assist vulnerable, marginalised and disadvantaged Australians. GIVIT currently supports 1,100 charities nationally, earning Juliette the title of Australia’s Local Hero 2015. In 2014, Juliette launched GIVIT Kids - a safe, online platform enabling children to give new and pre-loved belongings to others in need.
