Born To Sing…Making Another Difference

November 28th, 2015 by Deb Saville

As Christmas approaches Born to Sing is aiming to Make A Difference to women brave enough to escape domestic violence.

A women’s refuge in the Northern suburbs has described how we can help the women with being able to look after themselves after arriving at the refuge. Each person really needs some of the basics that we take for granted, specifically toiletries and personal grooming items. When asked if they wanted to help everyone of our singers said a resounding and passionate, “YES! Stop domestic violence.”
We are collecting toiletry bags and boxes over the next two weeks….

WOMEN'S REFUGE BOX-NOV 2015


And although this video was written about Climate Change – the message could apply equally to domestic violence….

November 20th, 2014 by Deb Saville

Deb Saville and Martin Meader, co-founders of Born to Sing would like to thank all the singers and audience from the local suburbs who sang at the Dare to Dream concert on sat 15 November.

Put Your Hands Together Please1Deb asked the audience to CLAP, CHEER and DIG DEEP.

A MASSIVE $ 3, 286 was raised to assist Flynn….who has been diagnosed with a rare form of venous malformation, causing his blood pressure to be very unstable and gives him huge pain in his head and legs. Flynn is only one and has already lost a kidney through complications. Flynn’s family live in Kinross, though are currently spending most days and nights at PMH and they said that the generosity of the choir was overwhelming and that the funds raised will help with all the costs associated with having to be at the hospital every day and Flynn’s ongoing care.

You too can join this fantastic community-minded singing group- Call Martin on 0433 653 219.

Let's Get Jess on StageThe concert was a huge success with two singers with disabilities sharing their dreams with the audience who were inspired…Jess Butt lives locally in Currambine and has started her own coffee business. She inspires everyone as well as being a comedienne, always willing to smile and share a laugh and a joke!

Jess Garrett has recently moved into her own house to be more independent and she travels from Vic park to sing each Wednesday. She overcame her nerves to deliver a very powerful message about how it feels to have an Acquired Brain Injury and the hard work needed to regain skills such as walking, talking and budgeting. She urged parents to always seek medical attention so that infection can be dealt with quickly as an unattended ear infection caused her disabilities.

Flynn's Fund3Flynn’s family would like to say a BIG THANKS to all Born To Sing-ers who contributed to the Flynn Fund.

Born To Sing ‘Flash Mobs’ Christmas Lunch in the Park!

December 30th, 2011 by Deb Saville

Born to Sing was the ’surprise’ at the Mission Australia’s Christmas lunch in the park.  This is the biggest event Australia-wide and is for those who feel isolated and/or disadvantaged at this time of year and 80 of our singers volunteered their time on Christmas Day to uplift everyone’s spirits.  Mission Australia Event-Dec2011 (56)                                                                                                                                                           We hoped that Born to Sing being involved would Make A Difference not only to the audience of 2,000 people but to our singers.  Many said after the event that they felt so grateful to be a part of such a great ‘community’ experience.  Sandra Wilson of Mission Australia was very impressed with our commitment and willingness to be a part of the day. 

Thanks to everyone who participated….you can see a video of the day here… http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/top-stories/christmas-lunch-in-the-park/story-e6frg12l-1226230210833#

Are You Ready for this Thought Provoking Movie? And to Make A Difference for our Indigenous Australians?

July 19th, 2011 by Deb Saville

Deb and Linz have been to Darwin coaching a group of Indigenous Leaders and their final trip is at the end of July.  They went to a theatre production to learn about Aboriginal perspectives on the Australian justice system…and have also been introduced to some very confronting politics in the Northern Territory.   

Please Learn About UsTwo filmakers have captured the issues and released the  the story of ‘Our Generation’.  Deb and Linz have been so touched (and enlightened) by this movie and their experiences meeting the people affetcted by the NY policies, that they are organising a Community Screening.  “Our belief is that every Australian should see this movie – to raise awareness of the issues affecting Indigenous Australians….and of course, by coming to support this screening part proceeds will be donated to help Indigenous causes.

Deb is negotiating with the City of Vincent and Hale School about showing the movie….Watch this space!

Born To Sing Loves Across The Land…with Success!

April 14th, 2011 by Deb Saville

Present The Cheque (10)Our generous singers practiced, sold tickets, baked cakes and rehearsed some more. 

They performed to a packed audience in the Quadrangle of Applecross Senior High School. 

They sold their cakes.  And we had two VIP guest speakers, one lady who had been evacuated during the fires…and another who was volunteering with Roleystone Bush Fire Service at the time….their stories touched everyone’s hearts…and pockets.  People donated very generously to our worthy cause.

All our efforts were rewarded when we were able to present a cheque to the Mayor of Melville for $14,767 to help those affected by the recent bush fires in Perth.

We also collected $ 5,000 worth of household goods and delivered two trucks full of items to help one family turn their rented house into a home.           One Truck                           

Born to Sing certainly lives up to its vision of Making A Difference!
