Please consider this your personal invitation from me to a special event. Share these details with your friends, family, neighbours & co-workers. Ask them to come along too and join us this Sunday 18th November 2012 at Saltwater Coast, Point Cook, Melbourne. Full details are below.
In this day and age when it can seem like everyone is busy and no one cares about each other, its important (to me) to not follow suit and to reach out when I think someone needs help. Being kind doesn't cost you anything and you might just make that person's day for having made the effort.
Right now I am in awe of my local community because we are stepping up and extending our hand to a family who really need some support right now. I am proud that where I come from the community spirit still exists and people still care. You might be surprised to know that I don't live in a small country town, but in a city suburb in Melbourne called Point Cook. Our suburb is fairly young and lots of families live here with no extended family close by, so your friends really do become your family in many ways.
A couple of ladies and I from the Saltwater Coast, a housing estate in Point Cook Melbourne, have put together the following event to support a little boy with Leukemia who lives in our area. What has been completely amazing has been the support from very small local businesses, most of them Mum/Dad run businesses, many of them home based businesses and from families in the area. Everyone is pulling together and donating whatever they can, be it a raffle prize, a loaf of bread, sausages, drinks etc. I have had the pleasure of dealing with so many of the people who have been giving donations, and it is humbling to know that there are so many caring people out there in MY community. This makes me really proud of my neighbours in Point Cook. Originally I'm from country NSW and generosity and community is just something that is found there. Sometimes I worry that I'm not bringing my kids up in a community that cares, but right now I am sure that Point Cook is a great caring community as they've shown me that.
