Honour roll

We honour our very first donor – Sycamore Tree Cafe in Heidelberg, a social enterprise of the Uniting Church –  for gifting us $1000 in our very first year. Such a small act of generosity gave us courage to continue asking and gave those we asked confidence that someone else thought we were back-able. We still have the handwritten envelope and cheque. It reminds us that small beginnings are beautiful. And people are wonderful.
