    So… I’m trying this front he business center in the Sheraton Fiji… I had a lovely time with my family… and while we where here I realized

    “GOSH how lucky we are in Australia”

    So we went to the local village School and we had a tour…
    We brought with us a small and a medium bag with pencils and school supplies.

    Sebastian my 5 year old gave them away to their teacher.

    Sebastian class size is just 6 kids… at home in Merimbula.
    His same class-level had 50 kids… and many of them coudn’t afford pencils.
    So our bag with enough school supplies for the 50 kids was lthe best present in the world.

    The I though….

    How much could it cost me to “gear up” every single kid in the school each year?

    Well, there are 300 kids…. (quiet a lot yeah?) but Pencils + coloring pens + some little tiny things from the Reject Shop cost me $5…

    So I found my new challenge… to provide enough pencils and pens to a the whole school each year.

    Not very difficult to achieve, specially if keep in mind how much some pencils and paper can really help some kids here.

    I spent 10 days in Fiji… but today, was simply the best day ever. It was fantastic to see so many kids so happy.

    It’s very powerful to see the POWER of giving back… the power of just taking action…

    * Funny wise there are 15 members of FlyingSolo that are my customers at the moment… and i just want to say to them:

    Their investment end up in some amazing hands today. Thanks guys!

    great Story Gab. We spent X-mas last year at the Sheraton, beautiful hotel! I am sorry to say that we did not get to visit the schools – assume that tour was not on at X-mas, but cudos to you for making a difference.

    Perhaps a philanthropic website with some awesome SEO could be in the midst… ;)

    Its such a great story, I am moved. I sponsor the school fees for 3 girls in India, I know how great it feels to give back.
    Well Done.
