1. SPEECH: Natalie Warne: Anonymous Extraordinaries

2. LETTER: Lauren’s Letter To Santa (via World Vision Australia’s Facebook Page)

3. BOOK: ‘Start Something That Matters’ by Blake Mycoskie

Written by Blake Mycoskie, founder and Chief Shoe-Giver of TOMS Shoes, this book is practical, amazing and so inspiring when it comes to making a difference in the world. I’ve adored the TOMS vision and products for some years now, and this book is just the icing on the cake. If you can, try to get your hands on this beauty – you will not be disappointed. If you can’t, check out TOMS and get familiar with what they do – so good!

4. PERSON: Principal Sherrie Gahn of Whitney Elementary School in Las Vegas, USA.

Saw this on The Ellen Show through the week and cried. There are no words to describe just how amazing Principal Sherrie is. Her big heart, generosity, kindness, grace, ability to not just see a problem but to also act on changing it is simply overwhelming and truly life changing. Goodness, if only there were more people in the world like her. Watch the clip below – you will be better because of it…

5. QUOTE: 

‘Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.’ – Robert Louis Stevenson

Have a wonderful, wonderful Christmas guys! Lot’s of love… Beth, x
