I'm fundraising for a great cause!
As part of our Ignatian Service commitment, we are asked to engage in activities that serve the hearts, minds and mouths of the marginalised. That’s why I've joined my school house/homeroom team to plank for Touched by Olivia Foundation's #Planktober challenge!
Touched by Olivia Foundation's work centres around creating inclusive communities. For over a decade its work has created over 42 Livvi’s Place inclusive playgrounds across Australia, as well as operating a social enterprise cafe at Five Dock, Sydney called Livvi's Cafe. Some of our students have come to know Livvi's Cafe well through their work experience placements.
By planking, my goal is to help raise funds to support their next community initiative called "The LIVVIng Room". The LIVVIng Room will see an extension of the Livvi's Cafe so more students, particularly those living with disability, can gain meaningful work experience and training. In addition, the LIVVIng Room wll offer an inclusive place for the community to come together, to connect, to socialise, to support and to learn from each other through activities and events, with a focus on improving wellbeing through connection.
Now more than ever, I know it is essential to get active and stay connected with each other, and our communities. So, that's why I am planking so I can help raise funds to build the CORE of our community through creating The LIVVIng Room.
So, please help support me by sponsoring my planking minutes because EVERYBODY COUNTS and deserves to be included!
100% of your donation goes to the cause. That’s right, no nasty overheads are taken out! And it’s completely tax deductible. What a WIN WIN! Together we can show that community is CORE and our social impact will create lasting positive changes for EVERYBODY!
