    Hi Everyone… I’ve ummed and ahhed for weeks about posting this here and finally decided that I will…

    The short story – I’m calling for donations :)

    The longer story – next weekend, my partner & I, as well as most of his family are doing the Run Melbourne event to raise funds for a foundation very close to our hearts… A fund has been established after my partner’s younger brother’s unexpected death in a car accident on 29 December 2011. He was committed to social justice & reconciliation (at the ripe old age of 16!) Donations will extend opportunities for Indigenous and non-Indigenous young Australians to increase cultural understanding and consolidate and extend recognition and reconciliation.

    So – we’re getting close to the event and still have a little way to go to reach our target… any donation, no matter how large or small are greatly appreciated – details at the link below… (to make it a little business relevant – don’t forget donations are tax deductions!)

    Thanks everyone :)

    Sounds like a good thing. Lots of people would rather donate to very specific causes than mega organisations like Red Cross.

    Hi Steve,

    Its in Melbourne – aptly titled “Run Melbourne” and sponsored by the Age. It appears a couple of anonymous donations have been made since my post below – so, if that’s any of you soloists – a huge thanks :)

    Oh dear – sorry Steve… clearly had a “I’ve forgotten how to read moment” there… it’s this Sunday, 15 July.

    I chipped in just a little bit, and I hope that your run will be successful! It’s always great to see people contributing to charitable causes.

    You guys are absolutely amazing!! Thank you so much for your contributions, I actually cannot express how touched I am that so many people are supporting us on this cause!

    For the reasons outlined in the first post, this is obviously one that’s particularly special to me, my partner and his family, and to ‘feel the love’ from others really does help us remember that something good and worthwhile is coming out of a situation that was so sad and unexpected.

    Again, my sincerest and deepest thanks – you guys really do rock!!

    Wish I could donate but with business being a bit slow starting out I have to watch my pennies. :(

    Good luck with it all though! :)
