Do you have a charity you want to raise money for?

Hire me (I’m free!) as a guest speaker to a function or event to talk about my life-changing experiences in the tsunami and what I have learned about love, life and paying attention.

The proceeds of any books sold on the night will be 100% donated to your organisation. No conditions, no spin. I love telling my story and I love the opportunity to give back to the community.

I live in Melbourne, Australia, but am willing to consider travelling anywhere to acheive my goal and support your charity!

End of the Red Cross campaign

It is with sadness that I report the closure of my “everyday hero” page through the Red Cross as they have closed their Pacific Tsunami appeal. I fell a long way short of my fundraising goal. Lessons learned: a. you really have to put HEAPS of time into something like this. It has given me a new respect for people who do raise thousands of dollars in their spare time for their favourite causes. b. Get onto lots of people’s lists. This I didn’t really manage to do, largely because I was a little shy asking people I know who have long lists and also because of a. (I didn’t put enough time in). Still, something is better than nothing and I haven’t given up … I will just be directing the money I raise from now on directly to charities in Samoa, rather than through the Red Cross. I’ll keep you updated. Finally, I want to send out a huge thank you to everyone who did support my goal and who either bought a copy of my book or donated directly. May all your dreams come true.
