Jonny is also a primary and middle school teacher along the central coast of NSW  educating our youth through passionate interaction and engaging teaching methods. 

Jonny has been through tough times recently and it has impacted on his mental health.  He has been very active in getting help for himself, whilst being so generous with everyone else.  This last past year has been one of the hardest for him, after losing his rolling home early in the year and being separated away from loved ones for an extended period of time due to travel commitments.

Jonny has never lost sight of constantly connecting with people and ensuring their time and energy is well valued and appreciated. Jonny walks into and away from every situation putting others first and always leaves himself short-handed.

Jonny is a bright soul and his community wishes to support him through this tough time. Donate now to help Jonny get his rolling home back to lift his spirits so he can continue to inspire everyone around him. 
If 5000 active members of the community he has built donated $2, we could see a positive impact back into Jonny's life. 


Jonny doesn’t know this is happening.
