“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope’’

–  Barack Obama

 Hello again.

As you may recall this past month (Sept/Oct) we supported the efforts of  Water Aid Australia - http://www.wateraid.org/au  in helping over 650 million people in the world who don’t have access to safe water (that’s roughly 10% of the world’s population). These people risk deadly waterborne disease each time they drink from a dirty borehole, a polluted stream or a dangerous well. Children are most vulnerable –tragically 315,000 children under five lose their lives each year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. Individually and as a group each of us can be proud of our contribution in helping to make a difference in the work that Water Aid (Aust) undertake. Thank you for your contribution & continued support.

For just $1.00 pw you have MADE A DIFFERENCE!   Our pooled donations have made a bigger difference and though our combined monthly donation is small, I’m sure it helps those in need and each and every one of us should be proud of the small part we each play in helping those in need.

The more Members/donors we can recruit then  we will make a bigger difference so again I ask you to encourage those you know to join us – just $1.00 pw; and do remember that 100% goes to a different charity or cause each month. Again our objective is 1000 Members, each donating $1.00 pw.  That’s a lot of money and it will MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Alas current Membership  - remains below 40.

Remember one off/single donations are welcome with 80% of the donation going to the cause/charity of the month. The remaining 20% is held in our account for future allocation to an emergency cause. So ultimately 100% of those one-off donations still goes to charity                               

 Cheers and thank you for your continued support.
