After a wonderful holiday to Fiji in 2017, Nathanial is planning to give something back to the locals by returning to do voluntary work in 2019.
Palm Beach Community Christmas Lunch
From the age of 15, Nathanial dedicated his time to helping those in need on Queensland’s Gold Coast.
With no prior event management experience or knowledge, armed with only his Year 10 education whenthe event started, Nathanial conceived the idea of a Christmas event to bring cheer into the lives of homeless, lonely, isolated and vulnerable people locally.
For three years, he ran the Palm Beach Community Christmas lunch, growing it from a BBQ in the park for 15 people to a packed room of over 200 people. From organising the sponsors, to the venue and entertainment, to recruitingvolunteers, Nathanial did all that was needed to make Christmas Eve one to remember eachyear.
Even in the year of his year 12 graduation, he prioritized the lunch over Schoolies celebrations.
Australian Anti Ice Campaign
The Australian Anti Ice Campaign aims to, in their own words, put the freeze on ice.
There is an epidemic of use of this dangerous drug which can only be stopped by stopping people, especially vulnerable young people, from using it. The AAIC believes that education is the key, both to prevent people starting to use the drug and to connect users and those in a position to help them with the support and services they need to break free.
Nathanial worked with this organisation from 2014 to mid 2018. He held various voluntary roles including Darling Downs Area Coordinator andmanagingtheirsocial media presence.
