Get together for SANE
Host a get-together for friends and acquaintances to benefit SANE. Be creative, whether you are having a:
- tea party, office lunch, anniversary, birthday, wedding, picnic, fancy dress party or
- special public event held as a concert, corporate dinner, market stall or school fete.
Dom Ran (aka Ran Dom) creates hand-made, quirky notebooks to record thoughts, feelings and inspirations. All profits made from the selling of these books at market stalls held in and around Melbourne will be forwarded to SANE Australia.
Anne Cameron • Photography Exhibition
Caroline Storm organised a fundraising exhibition of photographs by her daughter, Anne Cameron. Anne died aged 40, after living with schizophrenia for many years. The exhibition was a tribute to a remarkable photographer, and raised much-needed funds to help support the SANE Helpline.
Marathon-runner, Richard, set off in March to run the entire Bicentennial National Trail – over 5,000 km from Healesville in Victoria to Cooktown in Far North QLD running 30 - 50km per day for five and a half months. As well as sponsorships, Richard organised a charity auction and launch party to generate funds to help SANE Australia's work, raising several thousand dollars before he even left. Follow his progress on his blog. Take a minute to see a 'short' interview with Richard.
You can support Richard today by sponsoring him via the Everyday Hero website.
