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.
For a while I have felt that I want to try to contribute more, 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 am inviting you to a fun afternoon of lovely food, tea, coffee and wine at my house with other fabulous women. I am asking for $25 per person as entry (which is payable directly to this page prior to the event). 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 this 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!
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!
Thank you in advance for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help CARE Australia create the world we want to see.
