We recently attended a charity for Hummingbird House and while putting on my black tie, inquisitive 7 year old nephew asked “Uncle, what is Hummingbird House?”
I said “Do you know what a Hospice is?”
He said “Yeah it’s a sad place where old people go before they die.”
To which I said “Well Hummingbird House is a Hospice for little children, your age, who are very sick.”
As with all new or complex ideas, he took a while to register and you could see his young mind ticking.
With Family being the most important thing in the world to us, it didn’t take much thinking to realize that we needed to do all we could to help Hummingbird House.
Hummingbird House, Queensland’s only children’s hospice, will operate as an 8 bed, 24/7 medical facility, providing physician and nursing support and pain and symptom management. They will offer scheduled family breaks and emergency respite care as key features of their services.

So it’s our great pleasure to let you know that every Inspiring Business Event we host raises much needed funds for this cause.
Through our January – Inspiring Business Event we raised almost $500 for Hummingbird House.
In February at our #LoversOfBusiness event we aim to raise $1,500. We’d love your support and to see you there on February 25th at 6:30 pm.
What is an Inspiring Business Event?
The Business journey can at times be lonely. Your friends, family and employees might not ‘get’ why you put so much blood sweat and tears into your business.
But other business owners understand you.
That’s why each month we bring the local small business community together for an evening of fun, food & craft beers.
It’s called an Inspiring Business Event and are a great chance to meet other Business owners on the same entrepreneurial journey as you, and find out what’s working for them.
The recent Inspiring Business Event was a huge hit with one attendee saying “this is the best meet up in Brisbane!” – here’s the Happy Snaps.
