WE DID IT !
Together, we raised $350 which has been donated today to a local food organisation ‘ SecondBite’ , who work with over 1,200 community food programs across Australia to redistribute rescued food to those in our community who need it most
The organisations they partner with make a real difference to people’s lives, providing food, support, hope and friendship
By providing surplus fresh, nutritious food, completely free of charge, they break down barriers to accessing healthy food.
In the 2015-2016 financial year, SecondBite provided the equivalent of 20 million meals to Australians doing it tough. From pantry style services, to community meals, soup kitchens and emergency relief hampers, they typically offer more than just a meal. Connecting people to their communities, linking in services and providing a safe space are just some of the ways that their partners help their recipients get back on their feet.
With around 2 million people experiencing food insecurity in Australia, hunger doesn’t discriminate. The reasons behind this are complicated, and they strive to continue to actively support the right to a dignified existence for all Australians.

Give yourself a BIG Pat for stepping out to do your small part of contributing whatever you can. With our $350 we have helped put 1400 healthy meals on empty plates ! That is HUGE !
May the Lord bless your Home this Christmas as you continue to shine His light in all practical ways you can 🙂 May 2018 be a year of overflowing and abundance for you and your families !
Much Love and Blessings
The ‘LoveCareShare’ campaign is still ON. Final 12 more days to go ! My heartfelt thanks to all the generous hearts that have donated so far ! For those that haven’t had a chance to donate yet, please have a read and donate as your heart leads. Your small donation even as little as $4 could make a world of difference to someone’s Christmas this year ! It’s a blessing to be a blessing and to do something for someone that can’t do it for themselves is a privilege we all hold ! Let’s put that privilege to action this Christmas ! ❤️
Massive thanks to all that are contributing and making this dream a reality !We are at 7:9% of our goal and slowly progressing . I am super proud that my 4 year old is also onboard with us. Hannah had listed her unused toys and we are selling them on our local platform. Hannah is happy to give that to this cause . As a 4 year old all that she understands is she is going to make someone happy this Christmas.
We often underestimate our potential and our ability to give. It’s the heart that matters.
Just visualise this. There is a big ship sailing in the sea which starts sinking suddenly. There are people thrown into the water without choice due to this catastrophy and people that manage to be safe on board, try to help that are sinking. If they know swimming some risk their lives, dive in and rescue people. If they don’t know swimming, they try to throw life boats at the people drowning so they can climb onto it and stay safe. Some try to get help calling services
This is just a metaphor and the situation in real life is more or less the same. We all sail in the same boat of life. Catastrophe strikes and people are thrown out of their comfort zone, without choice and into deep pits. I believe as a fellow human being it’s every person’s responsibility to help each other in need. If you are brave enough, jump onto the mission and take a leap challenging yourself to give your best. If you are unsure, throw a life boat which could be a small donation, insignificant for you but massive significance for those in need.
The decision is yours today. It could be the greatest feeling this Christmas that you have helped brighten someone’s Christmas this year. One coffee, $4 is all it takes. Little drops make a mighty ocean. Never underestimate what our little drop of $4 could do to impact a persons life in a positive way.

Let your perspective of things not affect the way you perceive things in the present. Let your perspective be based on what you perceive in the present world. When reality hits hard, one needs to let go of their perspective of things and embrace perceiving things just the way they are to find a way out.
Perspective according to the dictionary can be defined as ‘ a particular attitude towards or a way of regarding something. A point of view
Perceive could be defined as the ability to recognize, discern or understand.
Say for example, each of us view life from our own perspective, contributing factors could be our age, culture, family, life circumstances and possibly a lot more. For example from a new mom’s perspective life could be both exciting and exhausting at the same time, a students perspective on life could be both adventurous and sometimes boring, a working mom’s perspective on life could be both rewarding and sacrificial.. the list goes on.. The point here is if you need to understand a new mom’s perspective on life, you need to perceive life through the eyes of a new mom to really understand their view point on why they feel and act a certain way
Looking at things from a new perspective can change your perception of things. And when we do that, we learn to appreciate each other’s differences in the most gracious way.
Who’s with me on this ?😊

Massive thanks to our very first donor 🙂
A little inspiration for your giving today !!
I read this article on google today and thought its worth a share !
‘Random Acts of Christmas Kindness – Make Someone’s Day!
With all the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, sometimes you may find it difficult to remember that this holiday is about sharing peace and joy with others.
A movement called Random Acts of Christmas Kindness addresses that issue, spreading the spirit of giving by helping others during the Christmas season.
“A random act of kindness is a selfless act performed by a person or people wishing to either assist or cheer up an individual person or people”
Also known as RACKing (get it? Random Acts of Christmas Kindness), this movement is growing as people enjoy the thrill of knowing they’re making a difference to others in ways great and small. Some people try to perform 25 daily acts of Christmas kindness in December while others let the spirit move them more randomly.
If you’re fortunate enough to be RACKed, then you can pay it forward and show someone else a Random Act of Kindness. Imagine this idea spreading through the world until everyone has shared and received a Random Act of Kindness. Then we could begin all over again! “
Though we are not part of the RACK movement as such, I love the idea and that’s what I am passionate about. How many times have been blessed with a random act of kindness, someone buying you a coffee, a free ride home or free food when you just couldn’t afford it. Now is the time to pay it forward. Don’t delay, someone is waiting at the receiving end. Let’s do it friends. Come join me.
Together we can make a difference and sprinkle joy into our community

LoveCareShare – Christmas Mission
I am super excited to be initiating something like this, for the very first time in my life.
I choose to call this a LOVECARESHARE MISSION – When we LOVE ENOUGH, we CARE ENOUGH to SHARE ENOUGH
Christmas is Jesus birthday. A day when we celebrate the birth of Jesus and rejoice that we have Hope for our futures. 2 days back when I was reflecting on this, I felt that God showed me this picture ‘Of me crazily running around to make my daughter’s 4th birthday as special as it can be for her. Of me trying to make note of every single thing that she liked and loved. Of me getting all those things that made her happy’. That moment I asked God ‘What would you like for Christmas Jesus? What will make you happy?’ Instantly I had this on my mind ‘Love, Compassion towards my people ‘ and I have set to action what I believe God called me to do this season, very specifically
