I'm celebrating having turned 60 by doing a sponsored Sky Dive for charity. Donate and give me the courage to take this Big Leap. Thanks!

When I turned 50, my family gave me a jump off Auckland's Sky Tower. Lots of people helped me pluck up courage to take that Big Leap by generously donating to the breastfeeding support charity that I work for as a volunteer, La Leche League New Zealand.

Now that I've turned 60, I've set my sights on an even Bigger Leap - a Sky Dive while on holiday at Lake Taupo at the end of February.

Please help me pluck up courage for this Bigger Leap by donating to this fundraiser. Every dollar will support my fellow LLLNZ volunteers who help mothers and babies in their communities to achieve their breastfeeding goals.

My goal is to exceed $2700 - that's a dollar for every time in the last 19 years that I've helped mothers one-to-one with breastfeeding their babies. Yes! I really have helped mothers and babies 2700 times - and counting. I find it hard to believe too. I think you will agree that it's a volunteer effort worth rewarding.

Please give as much as you can. I'd love to exceed my goal!

I'm doing a Sky Dive (Barbara's Bigger Leap) to celebrate having turned 60 AND to raise funds for La Leche League NZ.

It's a fun (I hope!) way to support a charity whose volunteers give so much of their valuable time and expertise to help others in their communities.

All funds raised go to:

  • La Leche League New Zealand

    La Leche League is the world’s largest mum-to-mum breastfeeding support organisation. Our collective breastfeeding wisdom spans generations.

Participating in:

  • Barbara's Bigger Leap 2016

    Barbara is skydiving and needs your donations to add to the fun. Help Barbara and La Leche League to keep supporting breastfeeding mums.
