It is at their annual conference that they put a dollar figure beside the 1% Pledge items of profit, services and time. Then they strategize how they are best able to fulfill these targets. Every year is different. 2016-2017 included a week in Cambodia for a team of 11 (out of 13). They packed hampers for the Foodbank, ran up and down the beautiful Sunshine Coast for Cancer, and supported their colleague Maria as she cycled the mountains of New Zealand for the Smiddy Challenge Days for Girls – to name just a few.
