I’m keeping my kit on for The Sudsy Challenge!

I'll be wearing the same set of clothes for three days, shining a light on homelessness and raising funds and awareness to support people doing it tough.

Orange Sky helps to positively connect people doing it tough with access to free laundry, warm showers and genuine conversation.

By participating in The Sudsy Challenge, I will be supporting Orange Sky to ensure they can continue providing their free laundry and shower service to people in need.

Every dollar counts, and I’d love if you could support me as I take on The Sudsy Challenge!

Who is this guys in our Town Hall?

Wednesday 25th Aug
Today we had another great Town Hall at QBE. I normally remain off camera to leave the stage to the speakers but today I had an important message to share. Not everyday you have 100+ people in a room, right?

Who is this guy without the official background? (Yes, we are celebrating our Agile Awareness Month ;) Many people ping me during and after the session to know what was going on: "hey Marc, do you know you left your camera on?" hehehe.

I took the opportunity to remind our fundraising webpages and few additional donations came through almost immediately. Thanks

Today is my 3rd Day of the Challenge. Looking forward to receive my official uniform/t-shirt and continue tomorrow with another 3-Day Challenge.

Thanks everyone for supporting this initiative.
KUDOS to all volunteers and to Orange Sky.

SUDSY Challenge in all my online meetings & meetups

Monday 23rd Aug

Yesterday I joined the #SudsyChallenge and the QBE Insurance Team to support the fundraising campaign to bring the opportunity to take a hot shower and wash their clothes to many people experiencing homelessness. 160,000 across Australia and New Zealand 😰

 

Some of you will see me these days with this background in our meetings. And wearing the same T-Shirt and clothes, which I won't wash for 3 days in a row. Most of my meetings today started asking me about this background. And that's the intent here. The challenge is just a symbol. A conversation starter to share the purpose of this campaign: 10,000 loads of laundry funded.

 

Your $upport will be more than welcome HERE 🙏🏼

By reading the amazing information in their website I also learned to avoid referring to them as "homeless people" but "people experiencing homelessness". Good reminder that our situations are what HAPPENS to us, not what we ARE.

 

Many Thanks. Stay Safe.

Thanks to my supporters!
