That was the famous catch cry during World War 2 when volunteers were required to join the war.
I think it is very appropriate timing, given ANZAC day is upon us, to say ‘Your country needs YOU’ to fight the war against the intolerable disparity that exists in the health and wellbeing of Indigenous Australians and other Australians.
In many Indigenous communities across Australia, levels of poverty are comparable to those in some developing countries, with the life expectancy of Indigenous Australians 10 years less than that of all Australians. The mortality rate of Australia’s Indigenous infants is comparable to those of some developing countries.

With that in mind I am asking for volunteers to help and assist in raising much needed funds for the ‘Fred Hollows Foundation’ so that they can continue the work in closing this gap.
Some months ago I decided along with a few close friends to do something constructive about this issue and give something back to our community by organising and sponsoring a Charity Ball. This would give us the opportunity to donate our time and money and be of service to others.
I am happy to say that along with the help and assistance of this happy band of volunteers we are on the threshold of something big and we now need YOU to MAKE IT ALL HAPPEN.
We have called it: The Eye Ball
We have set the date: 18 June 2010
We have set the location: Crown Palladium
