PAYING IT FORWARD
We often hear the phrase, 'paying it forward', yet not give it too much thought how we may do that..
GBDA believes that 'paying it forward' is the simplest gift of all. Our beginnings in early 2019, saw us using that concept to create the Community for Community cards that are in use in the region. The idea is to purchase a meal, coffee, or items and the vendor then passes it on to a suitable recipient. It has been well subscribed and continues to be used.
With the generosity of our donors we have been in the fortunate position of being able to 'pay it forward' to many community groups and events that we have here. They too, have been finding it difficult to get by as their facilities were lost in the fires, had their water stolen or just needing a hand up..
It is a pleasure to help these groups, get back on their feet or assist in their event - My apologies if I miss one.

Xylem - Lets Solve water
Xylem 'Lets Solve Water' - one of our supporters visited one of our smaller schools recently with a trailer load of groceries and gifts for the children and families of the district. They also gave a presentation on water- a surprisingly refreshing and informative slideshow with interesting facts on how we use our water. The slideshow is aimed at primary school children, however everyone will enjoy the presentation.
Take a couple of minutes to watch the video..it will surprise you!
