There are all sorts of ways we can help those less fortunate than ourselves. There are so many worthwhile charities out there who are doing magnificent work that sometimes it is hard to choose where your dollar should go. There is everything from the largest global organisation to small, local groups whose work goes mostly unnoticed.
You can vote online for the Heritage Bank Volunteer of the Year nominee, Karen Croke who set up the group, ‘Knitting For Brisbane’s Needy’ 7 years ago. The prize for the Volunteer of the Year would be used to fund storage and transport facilities if she were to win.
You can read more about the group here.
You can follow this link to vote. Just click on the ‘Vote Now’ button and scroll down until you find Karen Croke and then just follow the directions. She is currently in second place. You can only vote once from each email address, however, if you have access to more than one email address you will be able to vote once from each address.
I have no particular interest in the outcome of this award apart from the fact that Karen is an acquaintance of mine and I would genuinely love to see her receive this award and consequently the prizemoney which would be used wisely.
International entries are also accepted.
Thank you for considering supporting this cause.
Regular posts will return tomorrow.
