Go Without Challenge

If the last year has proven anything it’s that our communities are strong and resilient . It’s also proven that it’s vital to be prepared for what ever life throws at us .

One in three Australians will face a disaster or major emergency in their lives.
I am taking part in the Go Without Challenge and will be going without five essentials that people don’t have access to in a disaster.

Will you sponsor me? I’m fundraising for many people across Australia and the Asia-Pacific going through tough times – from those dealing with social isolation, to newly arrived refugee families seeking safety and communities recovering from a difficult last year. Thank you for your support!

This should cover the lights I turned on by accident and the meat pie I ate last night at 4am , nobody’s perfect but we should always try to be the best version of our selves , don’t take anything for granted .
