Solidarity Volunteering: Strong Relationships, Mutual Development

Did you forget someone this Christmas?

It really doesn’t take much to substantially change the future for our friends in East Timor, Papua New Guinea, Kiribati, South Africa, Thailand, Zambia, Ethiopia and Tanzania. Before you plan this Christmas, please consider adding Palms to your Christmas list.

What do we need at Christmas?

I am wondering what to get the kids for Christmas. My kids are aged 14 – 29 so you can guess that technology figures high on the list. Smart phones, computers, gaming consoles and the like seem to be the go, but how much is a reasonable spend?

How do we measure “reasonable” when it comes to our own? We would give them anything despite knowing it might be excessive. I know that without another thing they really do have the resources to realise a full life.

Inaugural Solidarity Awards a tremendous success

Palms Australia’s inaugural Solidarity Awards evening was declared a tremendous success, with guests excited by addresses by Palms’ Patrons, Dr José Ramos Horta and Deacon Gary Stone.
