Decide what kind of curry you want to cook and lock in a date for your event. You can share a spice night at home, host a curry cook-off at work or let the professionals do their thing by heading out to enjoy a curry at a restaurant, it's completely up to you!
Follow a few easy steps to set up your fundraising page and goal.
Invite your friends, family or colleagues along to enjoy your curry and show their support by donating through your fundraising page. Donations will help Opportunity reach out to families living in poverty in countries such as India, Indonesia and the Philippines.
Too many people in the world live in poverty — and sadly, many of them right on our doorstep. Just past Australia's shores, Asia is home to family after family who struggle to earn an income. As a result, they go without three meals a day, clean water, safe shelter and even school for their children.
Asia is also full of incredible curries — from the Korma Curry of India to the Green Curry of Thailand. Colourful dried spices hang in busy streets while the air is filled with the incredible aroma of street food and home cooking.
By sharing a curry with friends, we can celebrate the vibrancy of these countries while also giving a hand up to families in need. Every dollar raised will help Opportunity International Australia provide small loans to families in Asia, giving them the tools they need to start their own businesses, earn regular incomes and begin to leave poverty behind.

I'm so excited to be supporting the Great Australian Curry! It's a great reminder about the joy a shared meal brings — and it enables us to make a difference at the same time, reaching out to families around the world and giving them a hand up out of poverty through Opportunity International Australia. Opportunity is an incredible charity that helps families around the world grow their own small businesses so they can earn regular incomes, provide for their children and leave poverty behind."Diana Chan, MasterChef 2017 winner
We live in the best country in the world! We should never forget that. There are so many people around the world not as fortunate as us. It's really important to not lose focus of how lucky we are, just through the simple fact of where we live. I'm really excited to be supporting the Great Australian Curry to help raise funds for Opportunity International Australia and the work they do helping families leave poverty behind."Ian Curley, renowned chef and restaurateur
