Gabby Helps Disaster Aid Australia

Ten-year-old Gabby Norman was wondering what her grandpa does at Rotary Meetings.

When she heard about a presentation at Hawthorn Rotary Club for Disaster Aid Australia and it’s Safe Water for Every Child Project she wanted to help.

Gabby who is 10 and attends Carey Grammar School, asked her teacher if she could make a presentation on clean water at a Junior School Assembly, and try to raise funds.

Her plan to raise money was by other students paying $2.00 to guess the number of lollies in a jar, with the closest guess winning the jar.

The fundraising was launched on August the 9th when Gabby spoke at the School assembly supported by Disaster Aid Australia CEO Brian Ashworth.

Gabby’s project raised $238.00 for Disaster Aid over a two week period, which proud parents and grandparents boosted to $400.

When the Hawthorn Rotary Club heard this inspiring story they committed to add the remaining funds to support a full SkyHydrant installation.
