GLAM It Up For Charity supporting Orange Sky Laundry #GLAM16

My annual charity dinner GLAM It Up For Charity is on again!  A little charity dinner I started when I was on maternity leave with my son, who is now TEN YEARS OLD!

I never imagined this little dinner would still be going strong ten years on, raising almost $70,000 for local and grass roots charities.  I credit the support of many beautiful (and generous) friends, kind businesses, and a patient husband to its success.

Last year’s charity beneficiary was Hummingbird House and together we raised them an amazing $18,125!

This year’s charity is Orange Sky Laundry who provide a free mobile laundry service for people experiencing homelessness. Founded by best mates Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett (and 2016 Young Australians of the Year), who in 2014, had a “crazy idea” to put two washing machines and two dryers in a van and wash and dry clothes for free. Starting in the streets of Brisbane, Orange Sky has now grown to 9 services across Australia, washing 5.8 tonnes of laundry every week!  

I’m hoping the 2016 dinner will crack the $20,000 mark to help Orange Sky Laundry develop a new targeted service for women experiencing homelessness in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast.
