As I get older and more experienced in this world, I feel more and more grateful for the circumstances of my life and that of my children, especially my girls.
Last year, I decided to take advantage of the fortunate position I am in - that I am healthy, safe, enjoy equality & respect from my peers and that I am able to contribute an income in order to provide a healthy, stable and privileged life for my family. I ran this event, had a wonderful time and together with a fabulous group of women, raised over $600!
This year, I have asked for the support of a small band of girlfriends who were keen to help coordinate an event that will hopefully be slightly bigger and raise a few extra dollars!
We are inviting you to a fun afternoon of lovely food, tea, coffee and wine at my house with other fabulous women. We are asking for $30 per person as entry (which is payable directly to this fundraising page). In addition to this, to boost the money raised, I am asking anyone who comes to donate a quality item they no longer want to a silent auction to be held on the day. Something you no longer use but is still lovely and may find love in someone else's home - a vase, candle holder, piece of jewellery, hand bag, an item of clothing or a service you can provide by donating your time and skills. Please come along on the day hoping to find a treasure to bid on and bring some cash to pay for it (or be able to donate to the fundraising page in payment on the day).
If you are unable to attend, obviously your donation via this page will be very welcome if you would like to contribute - and thank you, if you do!
I have chosen CARE Australia for their focus on addressing international poverty with a specific focus on supporting and empowering women and girls in recognition of their value and importance in a peaceful, safe, healthy and progressive world. If you are interested, please read more on the CARE Australia website as they have loads of information!
Thanks so much for your time (and $) to support our fundraiser!
