Here are a couple of people doing practical things to assist disadvantaged indigenous children. At the moment Young and Free are collecting items that many of us take as a given - clothes, toiletries, nappies, shoes, sporting equipment, books, stationery, school bags, basic household items....use your creativity. You could even make up a pack suitable for a child of a particular age - get together with some friends, pool resources and put some together.
My office decided to direct funds from this month's casual days to theMotor Neurone Disease Association. MND is a degenerative desease of the nerve cells which control the muscles we use to function - breath, speak, move. MND progresses quickly and is a death sentence, with survival after diagnosis averaging less than 3 years. The MNDASA has various ways that it provides support to sufferers and carers. You may also consider donation to research in this are via the MND Research Institute of Australia.
