Moving mountains to deliver kindness
Great things can be accomplished with goodwill and plenty of gumption.
In just two short weeks, the girls from It Works! in Hervey Bay have gathered a mountain of donations for Yoorana Women’s Domestic Violence and Resource Service.
The It Works! girls will move mountains to help others – locally, across Australia and around the world. Literally, they moved the mountain of donations via several carloads to deliver them to Yoorana last week.
“The attitude of gratitude is the It Works! way and we are encouraged to give back in any way we can,” Brooke Stubbs said.
“We felt the Yoorana service was very deserving and the donations would touch many women and children in our community.”
It Works! is a skincare and nutrition company, whose products are sold globally through a network of independent distributors like the Hervey Bay girls, who work as one team with one mission – to change lives.
Their goals are to look great, get out of debt, have fun and give back to the community.
It Works! charity foundation, It Works! Gives Back was founded this year so the team could share the passion for helping those in need in their local communities and globally.
The foundation strives to make a lasting difference in communities locally and globally through financial, practical, and emotional support and supports victims of natural disasters and humanitarian crises around the world.
Amazed at what they achieved in such a short time, the It Works! girls plan to turn it up a notch next year for the It Works! Gives Back initiative by securing a storage shed for donations and putting the call out for donations months ahead.
“This is a first for us. If we can pull this off in a couple of weeks, imagine what we could do with a couple of months,” Brooke added.
“We have had help from many local businesses including Bayside Early Learners, Bayside Butterflies Family Day and Overnight Care, Indulging Senses Soy Candles and GT’s Fresh Fruit and Vegies, and we’ve even had interstate donations from as far as Tasmania and Perth.”
“Look at what we can do. One of the aims is to inspire others so they can do it too.
“Hopefully we can also raise some awareness for Yoorana, which receives funding for its services, but not for personal care items like these.”
