#doitinadress donation raffle Alice and Lily Harrison

Lily Harrison (class 10) was chosen as the 2017 One Girl ambassador for the Northern Rivers; she has formed a team – dreamers in dresses – they have set a target to educate 10 girls ($3000). Her little sister Alice (class 2) has joined her team and to help her raise donations for the team I have made a doll for her to raffle. The following blurb explains –

Can you run like a girl? dance like a girl? Skip, swim, read or sew like a girl? Can you support, achieve, believe, motivate, and change the world like a girl? My daughters can, and to help them achieve their dream to educate 10 girls, I have made this beautiful mermaid doll. She is 25cm tall (45 with fins) and made from all new cotton tricot, cotton velour and sheep wool. Every $5 (or multiple of) donation will buy you one ticket – leave a comment on the one girl site when you donate which includes your name so I can contact you – follow this link http://www.doitinadress.com/alice-harrison (winner announced 31/10/17 open to Aus residents only – she is also advertised on multiple social media sites).

Thank you

Shannon

An A-Z Collection of Behaviour Tales- Susan Perrow

An A-Z Collection of Behaviour Tales:
From Angry Ant to Zestless Zebra

Published by Hawthorn Press, U.K. 2017

This illustrated collection of behaviour tales offers story medicine as a creative strategy for parenting,

teaching and counselling. Following the alphabet from A to Z, each behaviour is identified in the story

title: angry, anxious, bullying, demanding, fussy … greedy … jealous … loud … obnoxious … quibbling …

uncooperative … and more. Covering a range of universal challenges, the stories, some humorous,

some more serious, are suitable for three to nine years – and the child in every adult.

All 42 stories begin with an undesirable or out-of-balance situation and, through the use of metaphor

and an imaginative story journey, lead to a more desirable resolution. In this way, story medicine also

has the potential for nurturing positive values.

Stories may not be magic pills that have powers to fix or heal all difficulties, but they can be a wonderful

and more pleasant alternative to nagging and lecturing. And sometimes ‘magic’ does happen and a story

does make a difference!

Copies can be sourced online or through Susan Perrow’s website susanperrow.com

Lisa Romero workshop

Working with Social Understanding, Gender and Sexuality – Understanding Individual Responsibility in Working Towards New Community. With Lisa Romero
1 September – 3 September Byron Bay
In community life we learn consciously and unconsciously from each other. Rudolf Steiner stated that to be an educator in the Consciousness-soul Age we need to be able to elicit the individuality. This course focuses on how to perceive support and elicit the true nature of the individual human being from childhood to adulthood. We will explore the changing role and the need for new community responsibility, that can provide young people with what is needed in the growing self-consciousness and separation that they are facing. We look at how young people can be supported within a community that respects, encourages and expands each individual’s qualities as the basis for the modern rites of passage into adulthood.

Dear parents, students and school community,

My name is Lily, and I am currently in year 10 here at Cape Byron Rudolf Steiner School.

I’d like to begin by thanking everybody who has already donated, your contribution has helped to make this happen and I have now put together my first 20 or so #PeriodPacks.

As this will be an ongoing initiative, with packs made up each month your continual donations and support will be very much appreciated.

I am also looking for prizes that I can raffle to fund raise for the cause. So I would also be delighted to receive any donations in this area.

Please read below for the Period Pack story. You can also now follow #PeriodPack on Instagram at @PeriodPack_ and see where your kind donations are going.

Recently I have become aware of groups helping homeless women in big cities, like Sydney, through the distribution of care packages filled with things like sanitary items and a bottle of water. These basics not only help women who are on the streets manage basic hygiene, but also allow them to spend what money they do have on food and other necessities, rather than sanitary products.

Shocked by the realisation that I’ve never really thought about how homeless women manage menstruation, I did some research on whether Byron Bay and surrounds had any similar services. They don’t.

When you walk around Byron Bay, you don’t see many homeless women; but that doesn’t mean they aren’t there. As I read in the Northern Star, “The people you see day to day on the street is by far the minority…The vast majority of ‘hidden’ homeless people include…large numbers of vulnerable women, especially younger single parents, older women, and a large number of women fleeing domestic violence.”

I’d like to help these women, in what ways I can. One of those ways is by giving them clean sanitary items. I hope to make up several care packages and drop them into homeless centres and soup kitchens in Byron Bay and Lismore (to begin with) and hopefully expand from there.

I would very much appreciate any donations, sanitary products or other basic toiletries, such as toothbrushes and deodorant etc, which can be dropped into the office for me to collect.

Thank you,
Lily x
