Macarons for CEO Sleepout Fund Raising

This was my 2nd Australia charity event to help the homeless people whereby it was a bit different in the way that help CEO to raise fund in conjunction of CEO sleepout event. You might be wondering what's this CEO sleepout event?

In fact, these Brisbane bosses voluntarily swapped their warm beds beds and houses for a freezing cold night in the open to raise money and create awareness about homelessness. All money raised through the sponsorship of participants goes directly towards the ongoing provision of Vinnies’ homeless services across the country. If you're interested to donate some via online, you may support them at "Rise to the Challenge"

Sounds so unique and it only happens in Australia especially after the flood tragedy happened last time. A lot of victim suddenly become homeless people just in 1 night. Hence, a lot of charity events happening to help out all these homeless people.

With that, Kate from Arrow Energy organized an bake off morning tea event to support our CEO for this fund raising. Anybody can bake and bring to office, for those who do not bake, just bring money to donate and enjoy the bakes. Even from this small event, we managed to raise AUD382.80 for those homeless people. Well done, everybody.

After this event, I indeed caught into surprise that I was proudly mentioned in the email chain to all staffs.

4 different types of macaron that I specially baked for this events were:
  1. Hankerie's macaron
  2. Melody macaron
  3. Most famous burger macaron - CEO loves it so much.
  4. Chocolaty lemon macaron - do not deceived by its look, it consists of lemon cream even it looks like pure chocolate cream

Some label behind the macarons' packaging.

Whenever you do for charity, definitely you feel good. Looking forward to do more in future.
