Ted Hosts a Movie Night to Support his Grandma

Small actions can make a big difference. Our hero this week is 7-year-old Ted who was inspired to do something to make a difference for his Grandma. A small movie night turned into a huge success as Ted managed to raise $250 for Shake It Up Foundation – a wonderful achievement!

Why Shake It Up Australia?

Because of the funding they provide for research 

Tell us what you are doing/did to Shake Things Up?

I ran a movie fundraiser with The Grinch showing for family and friends. 

Greatest Reward

The amount of money I got in support for Grandma! I didn’t run the fundraiser just to raise money, though — I wanted her to know I was supporting her. I want her to be able to get around faster and help find a cure to do that.
