Charity = Generosity - GFC

Thank you Aynur for the opportunity to photograph the Charity Trivia lunch in support of Cystic Fibrosis Victoria.

There was a generous turn out and everyone gave generously toward this great cause. This is the tin with the donations inside. The photo doesn't do it justice but I shouldn't touch the money.

CFV Mission statement: "To promote research, increase awareness of Cystic Fibrosis and provide education, support and advocacy to Victoria's Cystic Fibrosis community."

Really exciting to see the spirit of charity not snuffed out by the global financial crisis (GFC)! Charity is a positive number because Generosity is always greater than GFC (or crisis).

Thank you to NAB and management for empowering its staff to contribute to the community in this way. If you would like to make a donation to CFV, please visit here.

Isaiah 58:6-7,14a, "Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter — when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? ...The mouth of the LORD has spoken."
