the virgin charityspam post

So today, out of guilt, I started a blog.  Guilt from spamming my friends, friends of friends, my family and once-met aquaintences with my current charity project – so I thought I might let people actually opt-in or better still, opt-out.

My name is Tara, I am a thirty-something mother of two living in Brisbane, Australia. I love helping charities and not-for-profits.  I consider myself to be a cash-poor philanthropist and often get caught up in great fundraisers, of which I attempt to encourage others to get involved in – hence the name charityspam!

My background is in corporate social responsibility, and my day job is a fundraiser for Social Money Solutions www.socialmoney.com.au

Today’s charity spam is for my friend Leisa Gill who owns Pandemonium Cafe in Paddington, Brisbane, a funky lime green queenslander www.pandemoniumcafe.com.au.  Tomorrow, Saturday 26th March, Leisa is hosting a fundraiser-come-working-bee “Card Making for a Cure” in memory of her mum Sasha who passed away in June 2010 from Leukaemia with only 25 days of diagnosis.

If you would like to come along, Card Making for a Cure starts at 3:30pm and is at St Andrews Anglican Church, corner of Fairley and Lambert Streets Indooroopilly, Brisbane Australia.  There is a $10 entry fee which includes tea, coffee, nibblies and all of the materials for the afternoon.  You can come along for one hour, or stay for 4.  The goal is to make as many cards as possible to then donate these cards to charities who will sell them and use funds to do great things.

So come along, I will be there and I would love to meet you!

Til the next spam…
