We have just collected pads and tampons for Share the Dignity! Next time you pop in for a treatment or analysis, don’t forget to bring some pads and tampons for women who aren’t able to purchase them themselves! If you don’t have an appointment, but accidentally grabbed 2 packs of pads or tampons last time you were at the supermarket (yes, we’ve all been there) – feel free to come in, say hi and donate your spares to our collection basket. All donations are appreciated and we can drop them off for you at the nearest collection point!
We firmly believe that small (and big) business has a role to play in helping others and so we find ways to support those less fortunate. If you are in Hobart and have vouchers from past events please come and use them because we really do expect to see you!
If you attend any of the events we sponsor you might see any of us. Come up, introduce yourself and say Hi. We love to meet our clients everywhere – not just inside our clinic.
The A5M Conference in Melbourne – Gaye attended the A5M conference in August: “Outer Beauty: A Reflection of Inner Health”. This conference gave added insight to Gaye’s nutritional knowledge regarding the interaction of minerals & vitamins in your food, enzymes in your gut and how they in turn influence your hormones, general health, and skin. Gaye found herself swept up in a fascinating journey deep into cell health.
Australian Womens Keelboat Regatta in Melbourne – June Queens Birthday Long weekend. We were proud to support the largest women’s sailing regatta in Australia (and possibly the southern hemisphere) for the second year in a row. Every boat was provided with Aspect Dry Touch sunscreen and we gave away an amazing raffle prize of Osmosis MD products. The weather provided everything from wind, rain, hail and then, surprisingly, very welcomed sunshine. The ladies were well protected from all the elements by their Dry Touch sunscreen which was fabulous! They all realise that it is not just the sun which damages our skin but the wind, the sea and the cold.
Even more exciting was that the Tassie team came in second which we congratulate them for!!
The Biggest Morning Tea. Fund raising for the cancer council. May 19th
A small but enthusiastic group came together on a very cold, wet and windy morning. We played some games, tasted teas including the Miessence super foods and Emma’s Kombucha which led to a spirited discussion about everyone’s general health as well as skin care.
Emma completed the morning with all the news regarding our Oncology friendly skin care and makeup. Endorsed by the American Cancer Association these products are suitable to use whilst undergoing all forms of cancer treatment and after whilst people are recovering.
We made $130, which doesn’t seem a lot however we all know – every little bit helps.
Save the Children Mother’s Day Lunch. Friday May 6th
We were very excited to be the major sponsor of this very worthwhile event. Gaye gave a great speech about mum’s and skin – no surprise! Then 17 tables had 17 winners with our major Raffle prize on each table – the ladies were very excited!
Lots of vouchers, great food, amazing venue and an extremely fun lunch. With our help the lunch raised more than ever before – over $18,000!!! Amazing!
Colony 47 Thursday May 12th – Cocktail hour in the beautiful Organ room at MONA
A magnificent room full of magnificent people! Nibbles, bubbles, and a huge auction to raise much needed funds for the under-privileged. There was also a coffin and hearse – both to be filled with snuggly warm blankets. A very lucky and smart lady secured our prize of $700 worth of treatments and products after some spirited bidding. Final result was a mammoth $8000 on the night.
Master your Memory Monday May 16th
Gaye gave out vouchers to the wonderful attendees at the event and even spoke without notes about the Master Your Memory Thought Leaders program. Gaye’s speech is available to watch here. Didn’t she do a great job!
If you are looking for a speaker at your next event be certain to email Gaye to see if she is available.
MS Tasmania Saturday May 28th – The Red Affair – MS Charity Ball
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is the most common neurological condition affecting young people in Tasmania.
It is considered to be an autoimmune condition, where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks its own myelin, the protective covering of nerves in the central nervous system (CNS). The cause of the disease is unknown – although current research suggests that environmental and genetic factors play a part in the cause of the disease. MS gets its name because multiple areas of the brain and spinal cord are affected and this results in the development of sclerosis (scar tissue) in damaged areas of the brain and spinal cord.
We donated 10 prizes to this annual event which helped them raise over $35,000 into research for this disease.
TRED is committed to providing support to anyone who is seeking freedom from an Eating Disorder and wants to live a healthy and full life. We recognise that family and friends play an important support role for someone with an Eating Disorder and that they too need somewhere to learn from others in similar situations. We offer peer support, information, safety and privacy. We encourage people to seek medical and other professional advice for their particular individual needs.
Share the Dignity’s aim is to provide homeless and at risk women nationally with sanitary products to allow them a sense of dignity at a time when they need it most. No woman should suffer the indignity of choosing between eating and buying sanitary items. Several of our Drop in and Discover events have put money and donations toward this event. Collection months are April and August come in and donate during those months.
