PlanBig – The Community that Helps Great Dreams Fly
Got a plan? Need help? Just PlanBig it!
Ever had an idea that you didn’t quite know how to make happen? Ever had a dream that you needed help to make into reality? Ever wanted to help people, start your dream business, save the environment, bring together and inspire your local community, or just simply make a difference?
PlanBig may be just the thing you’ve been looking for.
More often than not, it’s difficult to find a way to make things happen. Especially when you are trying to tackle the big issues, it can be daunting to try to take them on as an individual. That’s where PlanBig comes in.
PlanBig is an online meeting place for people who want to make things happen. It’s where people who need help can meet people who want to help. After all, if two heads are better than one, then what’s a thousand worth!
PlanBig is all about providing a network for like-minded people to come together to give and receive support to make their dreams a reality. Come up with your own Plan, or get behind other people’s Plans – you can get as involved as you like. PlanBig helps people make a difference by making something happen, harnessing the “power of us”.
The website is an initiative of the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank, which started as a building society in 1858 to create prosperity and strength for the community. The Bank has not forgotten its roots, and its core business ethos today remains to behave as banks once did, by providing resources to keep communities sustainable and prosperous. PlanBig is the online iteration of what the Bank has always done – facilitate community outcomes.
