Everybody in this world deserves access to clean drinking water, it’s a basic human right, and unfortunately, there are many still out there without access to this luxury. We live in a country, where clean drinking water literally falls from the sky, and it’s up to us, those who have access to clean drinking water change the game for those who don’t. Our vision is to continue building this platform, in a manner where it is easy to fund and distribute water filters to communities which need them most. We use Sawyer Filters, a quick, easy, simple yet effective filtration system which can provide water for families without access.

One Small Step for Equal Education Opportunities: From me to PNG build two functional school libraries and learning hubs in Papua New Guinea.

From me to PNG is a charity built around the belief that every kid is filled with their own unique fire and potential, and every kid deserves the chance to release this potential into the world. Education is the key to this and that is why we want to ensure every school has adequate learning facilities and environments.

I’m a serial entrepreneur. I’ve started three businesses in the last 5 years, with most notable being UPmovement. I live for Social Entrepreneurship, and love that I get to bring purpose and fulfilment to my life and others every single day! I graduated with a Masters in Prosthetics and Orthotics in 2017, and have vowed to help the amputee crisis in the developing and war-torn world.

I’m a 23 year old marketing graduate from Auckland, New Zealand.
Misfit has been a project that has evolved from my humble beginnings of brewing some questionable homebrew while at University. Graduating in late 2015, I developed the company in the first half of 2016, before getting a corporate job at New Zealand’s largest brewery. 18 months later, I decided to leave this job, jumping into Misfit Brewing Co. full time, working to release our first range of beers in late 2018.

Food For Change | Melbourne

Food For Change grows and rescues fresh nutritious food to feed those in need. The idea started in 2016 in Melbourne with the realisation that there was plenty of vacant land that could be farmed to provide quality fresh food to those in need. Since then we have set up our first major farm site and currently we are trilling our community garden growing program and local community food rescue program.

Besides the work i do for Food for Change, my days are filled with looking after my son, hiking, cooking and trying to squeeze in as many adventures as possible!
