Our Supporters – We say THANK YOU

Kim and I want to acknowledge all those to support us – without them, our hard work would not be possible.  If we have missed your details, please let us know – we try to be flawless but sometimes it is slight off centre 🙂

We Would Love to Hear from You

Kim and I are dying to know who our readers are, what our audience thinks, feels, knows, need to know and wants us to know about.

From the eco to the friendly, from kiddies and hubbys to pest and junk collections, whatever you think, the good, bad and the totally ridiculous – we want to know what you think. 

We are so busy with our day jobs, taibo, kids, houses, pets and then by the time we get into bed at night, we have forgotten to ask all of you what is on your mind.

You would help us out hugely by letting us know of what’s happening in and around that we perhaps missed.  Don’t be shy, we’ll love you all the same!

Happy recycling and commenting

Thank you – M.A.D

Been a mom is hard, the normal everyday items should not be something added to the shoulders of the mom’s who child is in the hospital I work at.

So when Kim, Recycled Inc manager and hospital dietician, told me about the little cancer patients who were without yoghurt, custard and jelly, I could not sit back, work and then go home to feed my kiddies whatever they felt like.

I contacted a dear friend who runs M.A.D (Make A Difference).  Christie was only happy to help out.  With the donations of yoghurt, custard and jelly we received from M.A.D, we have been able to supply the cancer pediatric, adult and a few other wards with simple supplies for the last three weeks.

Here are a few pictures of the faces that had smiles on after they received their yoghurt. There where a number of patients who we did not photograph due to chemo, facial deformities or other sensitive exposures.  On behalf of those patients, we say a HUGE thank you to Christie and all who donated to the drive.  Every bit helps brighten the days of these patients.    

I printed a selection of photographs and gave them to the patients, I wish you could have seen the smiles we got, missing teeth and all!

We have been Nominated!

We have been nominated – my sister-in-law, Candi, emailed me yesterday to say that she had entered me in the FairLady Clarins Most Dynamisante Women competition.

I was so touched by her nomination, not only because it would create wonderful publicity for us, but als because Candi thought our work was good enough to nominate.

Thank you so much Candi, you are the best Aunty Candi ever!  If you would like to nominate us or another super lady go to  http://www.fairlady.com/clarins-most-dynamisante-woman and fill in the entry form.

Good luck and add some extra nominations for us 🙂

We Got Another Mention

Driving to work this morning I was ecstatic to hear Lee-Ann mentioned us on Gareth Cliff’s 5fm morning show!  I almost missed the 4 way stop because I was going wild instead of  breaking. 

Luckily I drive like snail (according to my hubby) 🙂 🙂  There’s a reason I stick to the speed limit.
