We (together with all of you :) ) have done it again! Our last party for the year to celebrate a super jam packed and fun filled 2023! 🎈🥳✨
A massive ✨THANK YOU ✨to all our wonderful Brisbane Zouk lovers who came to our Xmas party last Sat , & especially to those of you who brought a gift for those in need. 🤗💖💖
We managed to gather many goods, gifts & toys for the Salvation Army's Christmas appeal, which is just lovely and sure to be appreciated by the families receiving them. ❤ These have been dropped off under the Kmart Wishing Tree, and for those of you who'd like to still contribute, just visit your nearest Kmart store. :) 🎄🎁
The Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal for The Salvation Army Australia aims to create a brighter Christmas for Aussies experiencing hardship or crisis, through the delivery of gifts to those in need nationwide, including communities impacted by the cost of living.
💖 Join them in creating a positive change this Christmas. 💖
📣 Exciting Update on Cash Donations to our 2 other selected charities -
Also, as you know, just by coming and dancing with us, you've helped to contribute to 2 wonderful causes dear to our hearts, with $10 from each ticket being donated to Opportunity International Australia and Charity Water ($5 per ticket to each). <3 <3
This year our aim was to double last year's donation.
And made up of a portion of your cover charge, some lovely and generous cash donations on the night, as well as a little contribution from us to top it up, we will be donating $800 to each organisation!
You will not believe how far this can go, so we are very excited, super appreciative and grateful. 🙏🤗🙏🤗🙏🤗
🎄Some more info for those who'd like to read more - 🎄
Opportunity International Australia is ending poverty in developing countries – one family and one community at a time.
Providing collateral free loans as small as $100AUD, Opportunity is changing lives by giving a person a 'hand up, not a handout' to set up and receive support to build their own small business and earn a livelihood to leave poverty behind.
71 million people in the world live without clean water.
By giving the gift of clean water you’ll provide a basic human right, one that is still out of reach for nearly 1 in 10 people on the planet. Without clean water, cycles of poverty, illness, and limited opportunities persist. But with it? Communities — and all the people within them — begin to thrive.
This holiday season, you can help 200 communities gain access to the clean water they deserve. Give $40 to bring clean water to one person, or $240 to provide clean water for a family. No matter how much you give, 100% will fund community-owned water projects around the world.
We love our little tradition & making a difference in others’ lives through dancing ❤ , and once again we thank all of the dancers in our community who came to our Xmas Party and who have come to any of our events during the year. 🥳🙏
We're so grateful to all of you! 💖
And special mentions to ... our wonderful volunteers for their time and care over the year, and also to those thoughtful people who just offer or 'lend a hand' just to be helpful, .... 💖
Our appreciation as well to our community & guest DJ's who bring their passion for music & dance and add their special vibe to our parties ✨️🎵 , and especially appreciation to all the other dance schools in Brisbane and Australia, helping to build this beautiful dance community that we are a part of <3 , and putting in their hearts & hard work to bring dancing into the lives of so many! <3
Love & Hugs from us! <3 🤗
Our warmest wishes to everyone for a happy holiday season! <3
