Matt Callanan

Matt is the Founder of the 'We Make Good Happen' movement.  After he met Bill Murray in George Clooney's house (yup, really), he was inspired to achieve 403 good deeds to impact 12,000 people.

One of his good deeds went viral and so was born the #Tenner4Good campaign which encourages people to take a tenner from their wallet, think what good they could do with the money, and then go out and spread some kindness in their community.

The Tenner4Good idea has now spread with people doing acts of kindness with a tenner, in their local currency, from American to Australia.

Matt, a former DJ, is now a film maker in his own video production company, We Make Film Happen.

Matt Callanan's Project

“I’d like to give back” is something people often say.  Giving makes you feel good; it’s very simple. Meet Matt Callanan.  When Matt won £20 on a scratch card, he decided to share his good fortune and buy a Big Issue seller some food.  And so began the #WeMakeGoodHappen & #Tenner4Good movement.

Sara Blakely sold fax machines door-to-door and started Spanx with $5,000 in savings & no experience.

She never raised money & has now sold a majority stake in the brand at a $1.2 billion valuation.

The best part?

The gift she gave her 500+ employees to celebrate.

Amazing 🙏

Great advertising by @LEGO_Group

Since having my lush kid with @andrea_callanan 6 years ago it’s been a great excuse to play with #Lego again. Love it.

Thing is you don’t need either a kid or an excuse to play with Lego.

We just need to be more kid & lean into our playfulness

‘We forget we still need encouragement throughout life – to receive it from others as well as giving it to ourselves. It is as if we should just be able to carry on carrying on without that natural need being met regularly’
