“It is every man’s obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it.” – Albert Einstein
I have a dream to put together a group of like-minded people, with a desire to make a difference.
I am not content to simply reach my business goals, I have always had the desire to form a community of people interested in improving the quality of their lives with a common goal of helping and assisting others along the way.
So, rather than simply sit on the sidelines and wish that I had done something, I am stepping up and acting and putting together a group of motivated individuals to help my dream become a reality; and this is where the Eye Ball Community is born.
To be effective through the Eye Ball Community needed a firm goal, somewhere to focus all of its efforts. So we organised a charity ball, called the ‘Eye Ball’ in aid of The Fred Hollows Foundation and last Friday we raised nearly $150,000 which will go towards doing something constructive about the intolerable disparity that exists between the health and wellbeing of Australia’s Indigenous communities and the general community.
Our vision now has a focus and a goal, but to truly become reality it needs support, and that is where everyone at Eye Ball Community can step in.
The Eye Ball was not just about raising money, it was about forming a true community to help reach some lofty goals and make a difference in 1000s of people’s lives, including our own. We have made that first step, now let’s get going and widen our community from 700 people to thousands of like-minded folk who want to make a difference and create their own legacy.
