Participants went into the running to win 1 of 5 Coles/Myer giftcards. Congratulations to our lucky winners!

While there is definitely a sense of loss and hardships experienced in 2020, there are common themes of hope amongst the responses; appreciation of the environmental benefits seen across the world; a sense of comradery and working together to help and protect each other; and an overwhelming sentiment that Australia is the lucky country.
We look forward to sharing the survey results in more detail in the coming weeks.
“It’s been a chance to re-assess our priorities, and also be grateful for the way people (and even politicians) can come together for the greater good. We have recognised and given thanks for the mighty efforts of hospital and other front-line staff. For me personally, I have given more time to being mindful, and am practising compassion and kindness more as a result of COVID-19.”
