      Not many people ‘sit down’ to stand up for what they believe in. Simon Griffiths did, sitting on a toilet for 52 hours to raise money to fund sanitation programs in developing countries. A qualified economist and former engineer, Simon turned down a lucrative corporate job to pursue his real passion – improving lives in the developing world. A passion for hands-on learning and “consumer driven philanthropy” led Simon to create Who Gives A Crap; a toilet paper initiative that uses 50% of its profits to help build toilets in the developing world. Simon is also the founder of Shebeen; a non-for-profit bar offering wine and beer from developing countries, with profits funding development projects from the drink’s country of origin. Simon inspired us with his views on changing the way Australians view charity and philanthropy. He believes that by offering ethical alternatives to the way we consume and buy, we can all contribute back to those who need it most. _____ Thanks to Saxall Design Studio (www.saxall.com.au) for filming and editing this video. ____ For more information on Creative Mornings Melbourne, say hello: facebook.com/cmmelb tweet us: twitter.com/Melbourne_CM or check out our photos here: instagram.com/Melbourne_CM

                  from Renew Newcastle Added 220 3 3

                  Kate Banazi was born in London. Heavily influenced by her parents, both typographers, designers and keen makers of things, she studied menswear fashion design at Central St Martins, before moving into silkscreen printing and illustration. Kate moved to Sydney in 2006 with her husband and young son before signing with the Jacky Winter Group and setting up her own studio. Alongside commercial jobs and private commissions, she especially enjoys collaborations with others outside her field and is currently working with the research of a microbiologist. Fascinated by the sciences and space travel, she often uses reference to these subjects in her personal pieces and will sneak them in wherever she can in her commissioned work. Her background in fashion and textiles is often referenced with strong use of colour and bold graphic imagery and led to her most recent collaborations with furniture designers Koskela and fashion designer Dion Lee. www.katebanazi.com - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Renew Newcastle presents Creative Talks, a series of breakfast lectures by people who have made a living from their creativity.
