Life has been very good to me, and apart from losing my father at a relatively young age in 1989, my life has not been touched by tragedy or misfortune. I have taken the decision to make a regular donation for each booking received, and the charityI have chosen is Maddie Riewoldt's Vision.
Recognised recently in the Telstra Business Awards, this worthwhile charity is funding research into new treatment for blood cancers. My connection to this family dates back to the 1980s when they lived in Hobart. I have to confess to also being a passionate Saint Kilda supporter.
The death of a bride, (a former student) from breast cancer in April this year, only three days after she was married, has been the added impetus to try and support some sort of research into this insidious disease. So for every booking received I will make a donation of $5 to this charity, and show this via my Instagram and Facebook pages.
