Ros and I have just returned from Melbourne where the Children First Foundation had their major fund-raising ball titled Under the Crimson Sun.
It was an unbelievable night with one of the highlights being seeing the Children First Foundation children, including the twins, Trishna and Krishna.
All of the children have and some are still undergoing medical operations.
The twins are doing famously and to see these two little girls being just that, two happy little girls, after all they went through just over a year ago with their separation operation, brought tears to the four hundred plus people who enjoyed the evening.
The evening was a first class event and congratulations must go to Moira, Marg, all of the office staff and all of the volunteers for their efforts in making the night the success it was.
Congratulatulations to all..
Only the other day 22/11/2010 marked one year exactly since the Darwin to Melbourne Thank You Camel Expedition walked through Melbourne to say thank you to Moira Kelly and the Children First Foundation for their work of saving and changing children's lives. It seemed ironic that it just happened that I was with the camels on Beltana Station in the Flinders Ranges exactly one year since walking the camels through Melbourne to see Moira and her teams.
For Ros and myself, a lot has occurred since then. We have been married, moved to South Australia and slowly getting back onto our feet again after the camel expedition which took two years of our lives away from mainstream living.
Already, the plans for the solo camel expedition for the Children First Foundation from Perth to Sydney in 2013 are on the way and I will keep you up to date with these as progress continues.
Thank you to everyone who supported us and assisted us with the Darwin to Melbourne Thank You Camel Expedition and I hope I receive as much support on my solo attempt to walk across Australia on the Perth to Sydney Thank You Camel Expedition 2013 for the Children First Foundation.
Cheers For Now
Children First Foundation
