True grit

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - YOUR LETTER -

What an in­spi­ra­tion Lisa King is – not only to her own chil­dren, but to all of us won­der­ing what can be done to help those in need in our coun­try. Lisa has en­gi­neered and brought about the bril­liant Eat My Lunch, which has de­vel­oped into a suc­cess­ful busi­ness. She is such a won­der­ful example to her two chil­dren. I am in awe of some­one who has ac­tu­ally put into ac­tion, very suc­cess­fully, what most of us only dream about do­ing. I can only imag­ine what it has cost her – not only fi­nan­cially, but phys­i­cally and emo­tion­ally – to start such a project and see it through, thanks to her de­ter­mi­na­tion, her em­pa­thy for needy and hun­gry chil­dren, and her grit. Be­cause that is what this type of project takes... pure grit. Lisa King will leave a legacy for her chil­dren that will make a huge dif­fer­ence in their lives. There is some­thing spe­cial about this go-get­ter that makes me want to get up off the couch and do my bit to help make a dif­fer­ence. Thank you, Aus­tralian Women’s Weekly, for yet an­other in­spir­ing look into the life of one of our beau­ti­ful women. ISABEL ASH­MORE
