Give Now Week (28th November – 4th December): Recent research has shown that 61% of Australians donate to charity. Young people are some of the most frequent givers, with a third of those aged 25-29 donating every month and for every $1 donated to environmental causes, $3 is donated to animal and $7 to human causes. People are encouraged to focus their attention on the many ways they can make a difference, in the lead up to Christmas as charities rely heavily on donations at this time of the year.

And She Said YES! Anton Kerr had a unique experience on Friday morning, with a Colombian doctor from Geelong in Victoria and his girlfriend, high above the fields of Canowindra, when she said yes to the doctors marriage proposal. The doctor, who had organised everything and booked an exclusive romantic balloon flight package, caught his bride-to-be totally unaware that she was about to receive a proposal. Whilst Anton said it was all said in Colombian, there were tears and hugs, he then turned to Anton and said, “She said Yes!” The doctor had gone down on one knee around 300 metres above the ground in the balloon basket to ask the question. A first for Anton high in the sky.
