Kate Peck Ambassador for YGAP/AddWater

Tuesday, 17 January 2012

Kate Peck has joined youth charity YGAP (Y Generation Against Poverty) and AddWater as an ambassador in their partnership to provide communities in Africa with clean drinking water.

Fifteen cents from every bottle of AddWater will be donated to fund the construction of water tanks at the Ntenyo School in Rwanda.

Kate travelled to South Africa in 2010 as an ambassador for YGAP, where she rode her motorcycle over the country visiting some of YGAP’s organisational partners and a series of development projects.

“While volunteering with YGAP in Africa, I saw first-hand how access to clean water can help children turn their lives around,” she explains.

“AddWater is a simple way anyone can make a difference to the lives of 5,000 people living in Netnyo.”

Paul Verhoeven Ambassador for Movember

Tuesday, 15 November 2011

Paul Verhoeven

Paul Verhoeven is the latest Profile member to sign on as an ambassador for the annual Movember campaign. The campaign sees men growing moustaches during November to raise vital awareness and funding for men’s health issues – specifically prostate cancer and male depression.

Last Thursday Paul went in to renowned Melbourne men’s barber RockIt, which specialises in traditional barber practices, and had his Mo sculpted, groomed and waxed to support the cause.

Paul says his own experience with depression is one of the reasons that he is supporting men’s health.

“Depression is something I suffered from, and awareness is such a colossal part of fixing a problem. And because I appear to have inherited a rather overactive wookie genome, and were I to squander it on old time villainy/cowboy lookalike contests, I’d not be able to live with myself,” he explains.

The growth (who has the character of a country gentleman) even has its own twitter account, #PaulsEpicStache.

Last year the campaign raised a total of $AUS 72 million for men’s health globally, with AUS $24.6 million collected in Australia alone.
