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.

Naww thank you Cutie for those lovely words.  I think my eyes are leaking.

Already done !

Thank you!!!

Hell, I even voted from NZ
Hope it counts  ;D

Of course it counts!! And thank you!!

Done, Well done for being nominated Jillsy.

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

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.
