You might remember back in June we ran our annual bogan bingo night. Well, last month, we headed over to Cambodia to open the school that we helped to fund!

You might remember back in June we ran our annual bogan bingo night. A fun night filled with bad jokes from some of Perth’s biggest bogans, all to raise funds for Classroom of Hope.
 
Last month, our CFO Mason Dunn had the honour of representing Carbon alongside a team of Perth’s entrepreneurs to celebrate the opening of two schools in remote Cambodia. The group were joined by hundreds of local families who will be benefiting from the school.
 
“It was overwhelming to experience how joyous the kids and their local communities were, and how much the facilities which we often take for granted meant to them. It was a celebration of hope (which is befitting of our sponsorship partner Classroom of Hope) which will stay with me for the rest of my life.” Said Mason.
 
A huge thank you to our clients, friends and Carbonites who have helped us over the year to raise funds for this project. We’ve had a few events that have contributed to our donations pool; bogan bingo, monthly poker, quarterly networking events.
