On Saturday 11th Jan, Alex and I were involved in the Flight Centre NSW staff conference in Sydney.  As one of the four chairities who receive funding from the Flight Centre Foundation - we receive $220,000 every year!! - we were asked to involve approximately 200 staff in some sort of activity.  Since we couldn't take the reserves to Sydney, we ran a trivia quiz! 

It was a successful event and the staff were interested in our work and were quite compeditive!  As a result, we now have a pack of quiz material for anyone wanting to do a similar event, including table cards with our reserve names for each team - thanks to Soundri for her amazing crafty work on these!  And thanks to Alex, Soundri & Honesty for helping me organise.  Contact me if you are interested in the material.

Flight Centre Foundation were also running a competition to increase their workplace giving, which then flows onto the four charities.  The incentive was that their state managers were to be spray tanned bright orange live on stage if they got 300 new or increased donations.  They reached their target and the managers were indeed spray tanned! 

But the best part of this is that there is an additional $89,000 PER YEAR available to the charities, of which we will be a recipiant!!  So a huge thanks to Flight Centre Foundation & Flight Centre staff for supporting Bush Heritage!!
