Dentsu Aegis Network’s One Day for Change Returns

Dentsu Aegis Network’s One Day for Change Returns, Supporting More Than 40 Charities Across New Zealand and Australia

Dentsu Aegis Network launched its annual volunteer initiative, One Day for Change, for the fifth consecutive year on Friday 11th May, with staff volunteering their time to support more than 40 different charity organisations in ANZ.

Last year, 6,646 Dentsu Aegis Network staff across APAC participated in One Day for Change giving over 33,000 hours of their time to local communities.

Simon Ryan, CEO ANZ of Dentsu Aegis Network, said: “I’m very proud of what we have achieved with One Day for Change this year, and beyond this, the time and energy that many of our people donate to the community on an ongoing basis. With upwards of 1,900 staff in Australia and New Zealand, we can collectively have a huge and positive impact by joining forces for good.”

Staff at Dentsu Aegis Network in Australia and New Zealand have partnered with more than 40 charity organisations this year supporting a variety of causes, including Melbourne City Mission, The Big Issue, Foodbank, Youngcare, Indigenous Digital Excellence Council, The Smith Family St Kilda Mums, Fareshare, TWO Good and many more.

In New Zealand, Dentsu Aegis Network will support long term partner the Graham Dingle Foundation, hosting a day of workshops for students in need. This follows Dentsu Aegis Network NZ CEO Rob Harvey being ‘dropped’ 192m from Auckland’s Sky Tower for the annual Drop Your Boss campaign last week.

In Sydney, Carat, Amplifi and AMNET joined forces to fundraise for the Sydney Children’s Hospital with a Great Bake Off. Nationally, Posterscope took to the streets to raise money for the Starlight Foundation. In WA, all DAN staff spent the day at St Vincent’s, building beds and making up emergency packs for children displaced by domestic violence and homelessness.

DAN staff across ANZ have and will take part in many more initiatives as part of One Day For Change.

Rob Hughes, CEO of Dentsu Aegis Network North Asia and Executive Sponsor for CSR said: “We cannot deny that while the digital economy promises huge benefits to society, there is also significant concerns that these benefits will be enjoyed by a few and not many. At Dentsu Aegis Network, we have an extraordinary range of talent and capabilities and if we can direct just a fraction of that capability to impart salient digital skills to the disadvantaged, then we will make a positive impact for our young children and communities to reap the benefits of the digital economy in the areas of equality, new skills, health and well-being.”
