DO­NATE TO SPREAD MORE GOOD AROUND

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - OPINION -

WHERE’S the good in the world? It can be hard to stay pos­i­tive when there is so much bad news in the me­dia. But I want to re­mind you that we can all make a dif­fer­ence.

At Red Cross we will never give up on the power of peo­ple help­ing peo­ple and bring­ing more good to the world. We see good in the re­silience of peo­ple as they re­cover from bush­fires and in com­mu­ni­ties who faced se­vere flood­ing

We see it ev­ery day in vol­un­teers reach­ing out to young peo­ple at risk, help­ing them turn their lives around. We also see it in places like In­done­sia, where ac­cess to clean wa­ter and bet­ter nutri­tion is help­ing vil­lagers se­cure a health­ier fu­ture for their chil­dren.

This month, we’re ask­ing you to bring more good to the world by help­ing a neigh­bour, vol­un­teer­ing or even do­ing a ran­dom act of kind­ness for a stranger. Through our pro­grams, strug­gling fam­i­lies will be able to ac­cess nu­tri­tious food and those sep­a­rated from loved ones in war can be re­united.

A dona­tion will also bring more good. Make a tax-de­ductible dona­tion be­fore June 30 by vis­it­ing red­cross.org.au/do­natenow. LINDA CRUMLIN WA direc­tor, Aus­tralian Red Cross
