What better way to face down your troubles than having a good old laugh? On Saturday September 2 between 8–9am you can join in a laughter yoga session to raise awareness and funds for the 48,000 homeless Australian women.
Meredith Yardley from LaughterWorx in Ballina is raising money to support for the non profit organisation, Share the Dignity, that assists Australian women gain access personal care products.
‘I can’t imagine how awful it must be to be homeless. And to make it worse, not being able to afford to buy sanitary items, shampoo, even a toothbrush, must just be soul destroying,’ said Meredith.
‘If I can create an opportunity for our community to help make a difference for these women, well, I just can’t go past it.’
It couldn’t be simpler, all you have to do is turn up and give a gold coin donation and if you have any personal care items you would like to donate then you can add them to the care basket.
‘One person can make a small difference,’ says Meredith.
‘But by all getting together, we can make a huge difference to our less fortunate sisters. So come along and have a laugh – it’s for a serious cause.’
Head down to St Mary’s Anglican Church Administration Hall, corner Norton and Burnet Streets, Ballina, entry from Burnet St.
