The emails have started to arrive from all corners of Australia, friends of friends, acquaintances of acquaintances, all oozing sincerity. Sponsor me for Movember please. No, I shan't and I am strongly pointing out to R why he should not. Not while the homophobic and evil Jeff Kennett has anything to do with Beyond Blue, the principle recipient of the funds raised.
The brazenness of ex state Premier Kennett fundraising for depression when he, and what he did still hangs on, caused so much mental anguish to so many and now he fundraises to repair some of the damage he caused. Reagan, Thatcher and Kennett, all the same in my book.
The board of Beyond Blue recently had an opportunity to get rid of Kennett, instead they chose to let a respected CEO who Kennett bullied leave.
Not one cent of my money will go to Beyond Blue. Besides, isn't that what we pay taxes for? To look after those in need? Physically, mentally or in whatever way?
Our taxes ought to be paying for animal welfare too, but I do realise there is only so much money and not everything can be done for all.
Down Barwon Heads way a fire started and set back a koala and wildlife park considerably. Sadly five koalas died in the fire. I reckon Jirrahlinga is deserving of my largess for this week.
