Hey MySwaggers,


Our Jillsy has been nominated by one of her work colleagues for the Fred Hollows Foundation - Humanitarian of the Year Award.


She is going to embarrassed by me posting this here as she is still very overwhelmed by her nomination and that she is Qld's finalist for the award.


Those of you who have meet Jillsy (Jillian Alloway) Im sure you would agree that she is very caring person and always willing to go out of her way to helps other without a fuss of looking for recognition. Jillsy is also what I consider the BACKBONE of MySwag.org, working behind the scenes with Merchandise and helping out our Moderators or any members in need. I feel she is more than worthy for this award and Im asking you guys to vote for her or at least visit the Fred Hollows Foundation page and read about the awards and all the great work they do around the world. There is no monetary component with this award, just recognition for being a beautiful person.


Below is the nomination sent in by Jillsy work colleague Carrie.


I have never met someone so genuinely kind, thoughtful, caring & with such integrity. Jilly has worked for many years as an Emergency Medical Dispatcher for the QAS, helping people through what are sometimes the worst, most frightening moments of their lives, yet she has never become jaded, but is always compassionate to the core. If anyone in my family was hurt, frightened, dealing with a loved one dying or suicidal, Jilly is who I hope would be on the other end of the phone. And she’s the same with her colleagues & friends. A friend of hers has recently had a motorcycle accident & is in an induced coma. Since he has no family or close friends, she has helped organise a group to pay his rent so he doesn’t lose his house. She takes on extra tasks at work purely out of the goodness of her heart & is always not just ready to lend a helping hand, but is attuned to & always willing to comfort colleagues having a tough shift or life. She is truly one in a billion!


So please take the time and visit the Fred Awards and vote for our Jillsy -> https://www.hollows.org/au/the-fred-awards/fred-awards-vote-now#modalPanel7 (https://www.hollows.org/au/the-fred-awards/fred-awards-vote-now#modalPanel7)

Naww!!! Thank you for your amazing words Bretto.

And thank you so very much for voting for me Swaggers!!!

I have recently found out I am being interviewed by the local ABC radio presenter tomorrow...OMG!!! I don't do well with all this...this...ATTENTION...however I am going to take a deep breath and use it as an opportunity to promote the amazing work of Fred Hollows (ie turn the lime light off me and onto a truly special man).  Given the fact that our daughter is blind in one eye, I have a particular appreciation for people like Fred.

Voting closes 1st November.

Evening All,

Sorry for the delay in updating you. 

I did in fact get interviewed by ABC Capricornia (radio) and, unbeknownst to me, they did air the interview at some point after that (the journalist told me he would send me a copy of the audio and tell me when it was going to air but never did  ???).  The Executive Manager of our Queensland Ambulance Service (who I work for) Media Unit did manage get a snippet (why only a snipped I'm not sure  ???) of the audio and sent it to me though.  I had to convert and upload it to YouTube in order to be able to share it with you but this is the link:

https://youtu.be/FBmJX5g708g (https://youtu.be/FBmJX5g708g)

The announcement of the 2021 Fred Hollows Humanitarian was made today via a zoom ceremony at 1pm QLD time.  It was a really lovely event and I was absolutely in awe of the achievements of the other finalists.  Their attitudes and efforts really have restored my faith in humanity.  We are supposedly getting sent a recorded copy of the ceremony so I will post that up as soon as I get it so those who wish to can have a gander. A lady by the name of Alannah McGregor from Bendigo in VIC was announced as the winner  :cup: :cup: :cup:. After suffering the terrible loss of two children, Alannah has worked tirelessly over the past 19 years to raise awareness of suicide prevention and to de-stigmatise what was once considered a taboo subject. Alannah worked with other communities to create a campaign in central Victoria, promoting suicide prevention strategies. From this, the Suicide Prevention and Awareness Network was formed.   Alannah helped establish Safetalk suicide prevention workshops with community groups, while also mentoring funeral directors, health agencies and bereaved families – using her personal experience to help educate others. What a woman!!!

A representative from the Fred Hollows Foundation told me via phone (off the record) that I had come a close second which I was really chuffed about as I don't even hold a candle to to the likes of Alannah IMO!

Thank you so very, very much for all of your support Swaggers and thank you for voting for me.  I was (and still am) completely overwhelmed by the love and support that has been sent my way.  This whole thing has been a really lovely experience.

Cheers!!!

 :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

My trophy for being the QLD finalist

As you only know too well, an award is just icing on the cake for all the good work you and the other finalists have been doing , so even though you have missed out, the communities you and the others serve have NOT missed out.
Keep up the good work and congratulations..

 I’m now part of a group called DHDLBCL and I’m looking at helping in some small way for the cause, but it takes a special kind of person to walk the walk, which I certainly am not.
