Our Core Team
Our core team is made up of Jacqui Holth, Steve James, Jayne Hannam, Denise Healey and Karen Pethard.
Jayne and Steve met Jacqui (and Karen) in Nepal during that fateful trip and together they have worked on several projects over the years. Jayne and Steve have had a long association with helping Nepalese communities and schools and helped fund orphaned children from preschool to graduation. Denise is passionate about human rights and channelling investment into projects that deliver social progress and empower communities. Karen believes in the power of kindness and the generosity of the human spirit to bring about positive change.
During Phase 1 we have had some phenomenal people join our team to help raise these funds and without their support we would not have been able to achieve what we have. What we can do together is incredibly powerful.
A special thank you to:
Our on-site team who are making sure everything happens according to plan. Majella Brennan, Julie Stuckmann and Helena Van der Pluijm who have become the leaders of our fundraising force in Australia; Ky Furneaux, Hollywood stuntwoman for the energy you have invested alongside us, The Laing family for your fundraising support in the UK; Robyn Smart for your generosity in building our website; Martha Dixon for your video editing expertise; Team Nepal – the amazing teenagers joining us to visit the school in April 2019 and their ongoing commitment to raising funds; the anonymous donors and everyone else who has hosted, donated prizes, time and/or money to support us. We value your contribution more than you know.
Giving is the greatest gift and is our daily opportunity to spread kindness in the world.
We are always looking for other fabulous people to join us in our mission, for prize or cash donors to support us, for the broader community to host events, and for everyone to support attendance.
Please remember every dollar counts.
Contributing to something far greater than ourselves sends a powerful message to the Universe.
