Don’t you just love that new song by Beyonce? More on that in a second.
I’ve been planning for a little while to tell you about something wonderful that I am part of. Now it seems like the perfect time to do it.
It occurred to me recently that we spend so much time focused on ourselves, our own lives and the pursuit of our own goals! And it would be both refreshing and hugely helpful to get a bunch of women together, have some laughs and really help a seriously worthy cause.
I’d like to share with you a special organization that i feel privileged to have been part of for the last 12 months: Network of Caring.
Please do yourself a HUGE favor and watch the 10 min video, and really listen to the stories! Who would have ever thought that such powerful changes can be made. It’s a humbling experience. Makes me feel grateful!
And what’s even more amazing is that all of the donations they receive – 100% of them – go directly to their various causes. All the admin and running costs are funded privately by the founders of Network of Caring. No other charity that I know of can match such generosity!
So, why am I telling you this? Being a small supporter (although still playing a role) I have been inspired by the stories and the outcomes and have become passionate about contributing more. Let’s be honest, we all think about doing something – at some point in our lives. And we do get busy and challenged and distracted. But I truly believe that small selfless changes can create a whirlwind effect. Paying it Forward. Giving back.
I would like to extend an invitation to a Girls Only event, a start of our fundraising campaign for Network of Caring. I invite you to become involved. We will celebrate our Girl Power in style – with champagne and shopping! 🙂 (Yep, I’ve mastered a perfect plan – to get everyone drunk and let the credit cards swipe – haha).
But seriously, my dear friend Kim – an expert in health and beauty – is coming over to join forces with me.
She is bringing some BLING!
Yep, an awesome selection of fine fashion jewellery, the kind of stuff that makes your heart skip a beat 🙂 It’s super affordable and absolutely Fabulous! Best of all, the entire profit of all the sales will go directly to Network of Caring Australia who among others support some very worthy local causes (like families effected by child abuse and cancer, young people with depression, children and adults with disabilites and many-many-many others).
Put your fabulous dress on (let’s face it, us mums really DO need a good excuse to get dolled up, so I am giving you one), or come casually dressed, bring a bunch of girlfriends, grab yourself some beautiful jewellery – well in time for the holiday season (and don’t forget the xmas shopping) and just enjoy the fact that YOU ARE indeed changing the world – one pair of earrings at a time! Plus I heard a rumor there will be gifts for everyone.
So, Friday night – 25 November 2011, 6:30 till 8:30 pm, my place
(please RSVP 0405 348 383 or firstname.lastname@example.org or via contact form for address and any other details)
If you are not in Perth but would like to be part of this event please email me and I’ll tell you how
Make no mistake, this night is about Girls, Good times, champagne
and doing something GREAT for others!
