Witchery's White Shirt Campaign for OCRF

Witchery's 2011 White Shirt Campaign

Australia’s leading fashion brand Witchery has announced the launch of the 2011 White Shirt Campaign. 
On May 19, Australians will be invited to show their commitment in the fight against ovarian cancer by wearing a white shirt.
The exclusive limited-edition specially crafted capsule collection is due to arrive in Witchery stores and on on Thursday the 5th of May 2011 and will be available in stores across Australia and New Zealand and online at Comprising of three shirts for men and seven shirts and a classic tote bag for women, Witchery has also produced their signature Silver Gift collection to compliment the White Shirt collection, donating five dollars from the sale of each piece directly to the OCRF.
Witchery has agreed to donate100 per cent of the gross proceeds to the OCRF’s vital research endeavors for early detection for this insidious disease.
Witchery has a proud tradition of working together with the OCRF. Since they began supporting the OCRF, Witchery has raised over $2 million dollars. These funds have enabled the appointment of Witchery fellows Dr. Adam Rainczuk and Dr. Katie Meehan, who are now using state-of-the-art equipment to aid them in their research endeavors.
“We are extremely proud of our long standing partnership with Witchery and madison magazine," says Liz Heliotis, OCRF CEO "We are thrilled to see the White Shirt Campaign continue this year for the third time. Funds raised from the campaign go directly to advancing vital research into an early detection test. In Australia alone, one woman dies of ovarian cancer every ten hours due to late diagnosis. An early detection test will help change this devastating statistic."
Please do your part in supporting this fantastic campaign.  Be sure to wear your capsule shirt on May 19th to show your commitment in the fight against ovarian cancer.

Climb 'Til Your Dream Comes True

by: Helen Steiner Rice

Often your tasks will be many,
And more than you think you can do. 

Often the road will be rugged

And the hills insurmountable, too. 
But always remember, 
The hills ahead
Are never as steep as they seem, 
And with Faith in your heart
Start upward
And climb 'til you reach your dream. 
For nothing in life that is worthy
Is ever too hard to achieve
If you have the courage to try it, 
And you have the faith to believe. 
For faith is a force that is greater
Than knowledge or power or skill, 
And many defeats turn to triumph
If you trust in God's wisdom and will. 
For faith is a mover of mountains, 
There's nothing that God cannot do, 
So, start out today with faith in your heart, 
And climb 'til your dream comes true!

Piper O'Neill: An Evening with Johnnie Walker

Johnnie Walker uncovers the stories of some of Australia’s most extraordinary men at
‘An Evening with Johnnie Walker’

Last week my husband and I were lucky enough to be invited to attend An Evening with Johnnie Walker at Sydney’s Carriageworks in Redfern.

We feasted on canap├ęs and Johnnie Walker Black Label cocktails as Johnnie Walker led guests on an exhilarating journey into the lives of three of Australia’s most inspiring men. Cricket legend and former Australian Captain, Steve Waugh, former Olympian and gold medal winner, Grant Hackett and renowned explorer and former Australian of the year, Tim Cope all shared their incredible stories and experiences, with 300 of Sydney’s elite. The evening was hosted by renowned journalist and author Peter FitzSimons.  He unveiled stories of personal progress, adversity and determination, giving the audience the opportunity to hear the  great stories of their amazing accomplishments.
Model and TV personality Erika Heynatz facilitating an interactive digital forum where members of the audience were able to tweet questions live.
It was a fantastic evening and such an honour to be amongst some of Australia's legends.
