It was lovely to be invited along to cheer on the fabulous Amelia Lee who spoke at the Commonwealth Bank Flagship store in Brisbane on her journey with The Hunger Project and how it had been a life changing event for her personally. She’s vowed no more living with excuses, but to step up and live the dream – inspired by the hard working women she met in Uganda who are changing mind sets of generations of hopelessness, to believe that quite simply, they can make a difference.
Fleur Davidson, manager of the CBA Flagship store, hosted the high tea with all arranged by the very competent Angela Muller. A room of 30 women all enjoyed a late lunch of mini quiches, pancakes and sandwiches, washed down with copious amounts of latte and cappuccinos!
Former trippers were in attendance and there was great support for Skye Anderton of Ruby Olive, and I (the two Qld trippers heading to Uganda this year) with a raffle held. The generous crowd came up with $860 for us to share and commit towards our fundraising efforts.
This started the ball rolling for Skye and took me to nearly the $8,000 mark in my journey.
If you’d also like to assist me in reaching my ambitious goal of $25,000 please head to http://tinyurl.com/pd5c8y6
