School Funding with environmental thinking
August 05, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsThe 2007 Grey Eye on Australia Report identifies 'the #1 issue concerning Australian (as) the wellbeing of the environment', with 'many thinking they are unable to take real steps to address the issue'
During July and August 2007, photographic artist Angela McPherson - using the motto 'reduce, reuse, recycle, reinvest, reinspire' - is launching her 2008 Traveling Light Inspirational Calendar, designed as much for function and environment sustainability as beauty.
Printed on art-quality recucled paper with vegetable-based inks, the large 24.5 X 34.5 cm spiral bound calendar includes:
• Cultural & public holidays
• Original design imagery
• Inspirational quotes
• Year at a glance for 2008- 2009
• 3 months viewing window
• school term for Australia & NZ
• space for notes
• Every month is a re-useable postcard & bookmark
Following the tradition set by her internationally renowned parents Ruth & Dennis Sharkey, Angela has primarily focused on helping children, offering schools across the country the innovative calendar as a fund raiser - for every $22 calendar sold, the schools receive a massive $7.50. This offer is also extended to other interested charities and organizations.
Angela's philosophy of giving back extends further, with space donated on the back of each page (plus a share of a further 2.5% from sales) to 12 environmental and humanitarian organizations; where they have expanded on some simple ways we can all 'make a difference'
