Larissa Baldwin is one of the most generous people you'll ever meet. She's a Bundjalung woman who dedicates her life to fighting for First Nations justice. From staunch grassroots resistance, to building the Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network, to starting GetUp's first Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organising program. It doesn't stop there - she's constantly mentoring young people, crafting brilliant strategy and sassing people.

But this week Riss had to go to hospital for urgent surgery because she was at risk of organ failure and issues were compounding. She was told to have surgery quickly, or risk taking decades off her life expectancy.

So she took $30,000 out of her superannuation to pay for the surgery and is currently in recovery. But $30K in super now would be worth $200,000 when she retires from a lifetime of helping other people and the world.

Riss is terrible for asking for help, so we're doing it for her. She gives so much to others, and now it's time to help her.

It's a lot of money, so let's try and help her pay back some of her super and cover some of the additional costs of about $5k that have come from complications over the past week in hospital.
