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 backable. We still have the handwritten envelope and cheque. It reminds us that small beginnings are beautiful. And people are wonderful.
