We’re nearing the silly season with the Christmas holidays fast approaching. In the spirit of giving, it’s been another busy month for the PlanBig community.
Our PlanBiggers have been achieving great things this month, connecting and inspiring more and more people every day. We now have more than 2,370 likes on Facebook and more than 2,020 followers on Twitter.
We’ve put together some of the highlights from the month for your reading pleasure:
Bendigo Blues and Roots Music Festival
Colin began planning the first ever Bendigo Blues and Roots Music Festival nearly two years ago and this month all of his dreams and visions came true. The event was a huge success, with the three day festival featuring more than 55 acts as well as kids’ activities, face painting and craft workshops – there was something fun for everyone. You can see what Colin has been up to here.
Men’s Health Expo
This month John successfully hosted the Men’s Health Expo, an event committed to supporting and promoting men’s health. There were a number of community organisations present on the day including Movember, Vision 2020, Kidney Health Australia and the Red Cross Blood Bank – all lending a helping hand to this fantastic cause. You can check out John’s plan here.
Cruisin 4 a Cure
Vanessa has a plan to travel around Australia for 12 months in a motorhome with the goal of raising $1 million dollars for the Cancer Council. Vanessa successfully hosted a Bingo and Burlesque night to help contribute to the cancer research fund, raising a whopping $3,500 and has other activities lined up to help make her dream a reality. A fantastic effort Vanessa! Show your support here.
