The Geelong Advertiser weekend ‘GT Magazine’ 7/12/13 ran a feature article on Bali Smiles.
The 15/11/2014 edition of GT Magazine carried a follow-up article on ‘Bali Smiles’ about the “Build A House” Campaign using www.pozible crowdfunding as a platform to raise awareness and funds.
August 2016. The Vision Australia Radio Network Geelong Branch (99.5 FM) offers a range of interesting and informative programs. On Mondays at 3:00pm a 30 minute pre-recorded interview is aired. The program is titled ‘The Remarkables’ and features local people who are involved in communities in various ways. I had a lovely time being interviewed and answering questions. Hopefully it was an interesting segment for the people who access this service. Thank you to Mr Mark Herd for this opportunity.
