Award-winning Australian TV production company Charity TV Global has today announced an exclusive partnership with international business icon and original Shark on the hit TV show Shark Tank, Kevin Harrington.
Charity TV Global creates socially conscious broadcast content which has aired on ABC Australia, Nine Network, Seven Network and will soon launch in New Zealand on TVNZ.
With a mission to make a difference in people’s lives through the power of entertainment, adventure, travel and philanthropy, Charity TV Global’s unique casting process provides an opportunity for anyone to undertake an epic fundraising journey for their nominated charity and culminates in the filming of the adventure of a lifetime which is broadcast via Charity TV Global’s entertainment partners.
Charity TV Global has already made its charitable mark – supporting more than 30 charities around the world. Already established in Australia, earlier this year Charity TV Global began its proven fundraising campaign in New Zealand as well as in the United States of America.
This exclusive partnership with Kevin Harrington will see Charity TV Global make a significantly greater impact on charities as well as further extend its media presence worldwide.
“13 years ago, I started Charity TV Global as a side project. The idea was to incentivise people to be socially conscious by rewarding them with a starring role on a television show. Combining entertainment with philanthropy has enabled this concept to grow from one project annually to 30 filming and fundraising projects each year in multiple countries… to today, announcing this exciting partnership with Kevin Harrington. Together we will harness the power of television entertainment to deliver significant fundraising dollars to charities in Australia and across the world. In the next 12 months alone, we are committed to distributing $10 million to charities worldwide and our plan for 2020 is to film 100 projects right across the globe,” said Charity TV Global’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Troy Gray.
“I am excited to be partnering with Charity TV Global to provide even greater framework and support to their award-winning ‘entertainment meets philanthropy’ model. This partnership will see us fast-track Charity TV Global’s international expansion. I spent the first 30 years of my life figuring out what to do…the following 30 accomplishing everything I wanted to do and now I’m committed to spending the next 30 giving back,” said Harrington.
