I reckon that women still get the rough end of the stick and, consequently, we all suffer. Wouldn’t it be great if 50% of our leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (and politics) were women.

That’s where my champion Mel Snape belongs and she’s been accepted onto the 5th cohort of 75 women from around the world in the Homeward Bound Program.

So I’ve put my money where my mouth is by supporting her fundraising campaign. Next year you’ll see me in the bush in a snazzy #TeamHB5 T-shirt.

Want in? Support Mel via  www.chuffed.org/project/melsnape .

A little return on your investment? Why not order a mixed case of fantastic local wines, courtesy of Capital Winery? (Limited time only). Or come along to our special screening of 2040 hosted by Dendy on October 22nd.

Keep updated on new events and fundraising milestones by following ‘For the Good Of Penguins Everywhere’ on Facebook and ‘For the Good of Penguins’ on instagram.

Go Mel!
