Just a quick bit of good news to brighten and warm a chilly morning. Our application for sponsorship from Google has moved from the initial stage onto the next stage. If this application is successful it would provide up to AUD13,000 in free advertising for a month (with a maximum of USD325 per day). It appears from the website that this is ongoing sponsorship.
This would be an incredible boon for the platform and really transform our trajectory. I currently have all digits crossed.
And while I was writing this we were approved!
Passing this stage also qualifies us to apply for other technology and software contributions to the platform.
Applying for this was one of our volunteers John Blandford’s ideas, so a hearty well done John.
Another grant would cover the design of the ad and campaign. This is part of our continuing effort to get the platform up and running to support 1,000 Australians with disability.
