Wow, it’s been an insane couple of weeks….in a good way!
I made a decision quite a few years ago now to more closely align my inner values with my outside ‘doing’ in the world. The first thing was to give up my well-paid job in the corporate world working for an investment bank. I won’t lie, sometimes it’s been tough but there are weeks like this that make it all seem worth it. While I’m no longer as wealthy financially, I’m richer in so, so, so many more ways. One of the not-for-profit projects I’m involved in, The Repair Cafe Sydney North received some exposure on the ABC 7.30 Report this week and the amount of positive commentary received from the public has been incredible. Our website nearly fried twice from people interested in knowing what we do. We’re a bit freaked out that we’re going to be bombarded with people in August, so if you’ve been thinking of coming along, I suggest you wait a couple of months 🙂
Another thing that happened is that we’ve found out that the Sydney Edible Garden Trail is in the finals for the NSW My Community Project grants. It needs the public to vote for us to win the grant.
If you live in one of the following areas you’re able to vote for us to receive funding (you’re only allowed to vote in projects in your own state electorate and each electorate is allocated the same amount of funding): Artarmon, Chatswood West, East Ryde, Gladesville, Gore Hill, Greenwich, Henley, Hunters Hill, Huntley’s Point, Lane Cove, Linley Point, Longueville, Macquarie Park, Monash Park, North Ryde, Northwood, Pitney, Riverview, Ryde, St Leonard’s, Tambourine Bay or Woolwich.
