Donation in lieu of corporate Christmas cardsDecember 22, 2008
In the spirit of Christmas, on behalf of CyberText Consulting I have made a donation to the Western Operations of the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia in lieu of sending out Christmas cards to clients.
The Royal Flying Doctor Service is an essential service for people living and working in areas outside the major metropolitan centres. It provides on-ground medical services and air ambulance transport.
Many of my clients are mining and resource companies whose employees live and work in some of Australia’s remotest places. The RFDS is literally a lifeline for them, and for all outback workers and travellers. While it gets some government funding, it relies a lot on donations and bequests to keep running.
