Humans in Geelong is a unique way of connecting people in Geelong and understanding the depth of what people do for and within our community. The book will become a major and constructive 'asset' for Geelong.

I feel that this is a fantastic initive, highlighting all the great people who are making a difference in Geelong. The sharing of positive and uplifting stories will be fantastic for all who have a chance to view the book. What a great thing to be in schools, libraries and all areas where people can be impacted by the stories presented, i.e. doctor and dental surgeries, holiday houses etc

This grant would enable the book to go FREE to all these places and more. It will help Humans in Geelong to achieve their aim of using the powerful medium of storytelling to create positive social change.
