Contribution is one of the most important elements of life and is life changing in a way that few people understand. Through contribution the saying of “What you give you get back tenfold.” becomes reality. I find it is one of the most rewarding aspects of living on this earth as well as serving others.
Two of the organisations that I feel are close to my heart are listed below.
Legacy is a charity providing services to Australian families suffering financially and socially after the incapacitation or death of a spouse or parent, during or after their defence force service. We currently care for 100,000 widows and 1,900 children and disabled dependants throughout Australia.
Microcephaly affects 2 – 2 1/2% of the entire population. Microcephaly is COMMON – it is far more common than other well known disorders (i.e. Autism). Microcephaly affects more than 25,000 infants in the United States each year. FCM is the only 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping children diagnosed with Microcephaly (and other closely-related neurological disorders).
(Please note currently there is no Australian Branch of the wonderful organisation)
