Social Causes

causes

It should come as no surprise that my Christian beliefs manifest and drive the various causes I have aligned and supported over the years. This page is my attempt to record the various not-for-profit, community/social-focused organisations I have invested into over the years. The focus is not on quantity but instead quality – less is more as well as having a strategic intent. At the end of the day, being able to give back and make a difference in the lives of others who go without is a precious hard-to-quantify standard for living. Combined with my beliefs and faith, I know this aligns with an eternal view, where I store up my riches in heaven.

Workplace Social Involvement

Of a similar and parallel nature, over the years I have also been active in various Social Clubs, be it at the educational institution where I studied, or in the workplace:

  1. Haileybury College – School Magazine Editorial Team (1998 – 1999)
  2. Monash University Business Systems Society (2000 – 2003)

  6. Monash University, Alumni Mentoring (2008)
  7. Melbourne University Faculty of Bus & Eco, Mentor Program (2012 – current)

If you think I have been busy over these years with all this, then consider Called To Serve where I list out the different ways I have and continue to serve in church, taking note of the overlapping time periods.
