Endeavour Foundation’s CEO David Barbagallo just doesn’t know when to shut up, but with your help we can make him zip it for a day during Silent September.
As part of the Chatterbox Challenge, Mr Barbagallo is asking community members, professionals, business leaders and politicians to take up the offer to shut him up today (Tuesday, 15 September) during Disability Action Week, 14 to 20 September.
You can shut him up for one minute, 12 minutes, 30 minutes or a whole hour. If enough people get together, we can shut him up for the whole day.
“I am hoping to raise a lot of money this year as I know there are a lot of people, including my staff and friends, who would love to shut me up, so now I am giving them that opportunity,” Mr Barbagallo said.
“Initiatives like the Chatterbox Challenge help raise awareness and the funds needed to support people with disabilities to improve their opportunities to live an ordinary life with choice and control.
“The Chatterbox Challenge also highlights some the challenges faced by people with disabilities, including difficulties with communication, something many of us take for granted every day.”
The third annual Chatterbox Challenge is an initiative of five charities; Multicap, Endeavour Foundation, Cerebral Palsy League, Life Without Barriers and Centacare. The funds raised assist the event’s five charities to help thousands of Queenslanders live more empowered and independent lives. This year, the aim is to raise more than $150,000.
Participants can pick any day during Silent September to either zip it, host it or donate to it and pledge to go silent, host a silent event or simply donate to the Chatterbox Challenge silent cause.
To help shut up David Barbagallo for a day, sponsor him by visiting www.endeavour.com.au/chatterboxchallenge.
Challenge yourself or your boss by taking part in the Chatterbox Challenge this Silent September. To take part in the Chatterbox Challenge, register a silent event or donate, visit www.chatterboxchallenge.com.au.
