Thank you for your support over the years. Through this event, I am raising much needed funds for CARE Australia. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own.

You can help too, by donating to the AUSTRALIAN NATIVITY SCENE, an annual event during Christmas season.
