Even if you’re not a big fan of Valentine’s Day, it might be worth locking in a special date this Friday. Why, you ask? Because Tinder has launched ‘Date To Donate‘ this year with Australian Venue Co. The gist is that Tinder is going to match up to $100 of what you spend on food and drinks on Feb 14 and donate it to a solid cause. Finally, you can order the most expensive dish on the menu and not feel super guilty about it (though I never do anyway).
On February 14 – the one day a year we all want a date – Tinder will be donating up to $100 per couple that wines or dines (or both) in at one of 15 participating venues across Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. Truly all you and your date have to do is show that you’re a match, then enjoy your date knowing that whatever you spend on food and drinks is being matched and donated directly to Firesticks Alliance Indigenous Corporation.
Firesticks is an Indigenous-led collective who are working hard to strengthen the education and understanding around First Nations cultural burning and land management practices in order to maintain ecosystems and landscapes across Australia, especially as the recent bushfire crisis continues to see over 60 fires being worked on in NSW alone at the time of writing.
The 15 venues across Syd, Bris, and Melb are all pretty chilled out so there are no weird vibes if this is literally your first date. From The Forresters in Surry Hills to The Provincial in Brunswick and Darling in Brissy, it’s very much a relaxed vibe.
Need some date inspo? Here’s everywhere you can book yourselves a table, and get in on the Date To Donate bushfire relief action.
