Upcoming Events

‘100 Headstarts’, Cindy’s new book on child-raising, is due for release in 2011.

20 January 2011 – Salvation Army Media Launch for new campaign ‘Shopping with a Conscience’. Cindy is proud to be an Ambassador for the Salvation Army – one of her very favourite charities of all time – and will speak at the launch.

The aim of ‘Shopping with a Conscience’ is to encourage all Australians to shop local and discover local, both online and at their local Salvos Stores. Why? Because all proceeds from Salvos Stores go directly to helping the local community and the local environment – by reusing pre-loved items.

In addition, Salvos Stores will be leading the Australian charities sector by officially launching the Salvos Stores online store – a national first!

By supporting this community campaign we can help Salvos Stores provide 100,000 meals for the hungry, refuge for 500 victims of abuse, care for 3,000 elderly people and 2,000 beds for the homeless every week.

26 January 2011 – Australia Day celebrations. Cindy is honoured to be an Australia Day ambassador and looks forward to participating in celebrations, including delivering her first Australia Day address.

At 7pm Cindy will participate in the Eye-Dotting Ceremony (designed to awaken the spirit of the dragons) just outside the Town Hall in George St before riding in the motorcade that leads what promises to be a spectacular parade which will welcome in the Year of the Rabbit with a message of peace, beauty, endurance and hope. The parade will feature a giant rabbit made from recycled metal, hip hop artists, flag bearers, stilt walkers, stunningly beautiful lanterns, more than 250 performers from Hubei in central China, traditional dance, martial arts, and gorgeous floats from the Australian Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese communities celebrating the Lunar New Year.

“The medical benefits of laughing should not be underestimated. They range from improving circulatory and cardiovascular health and improving breathing capacity to enhancing the immune system, relieving stress and burning off calories. Laughter releases endorphins as well as giving you a great aerobic workout!
