The Jassy Dean Trust helps sick Waiheke children and their families at times of a child's illness. Its major fundraiser is the annual SeaLink Jassy Dean Trust Garden Safari. Chairman Greg Dean looks back onayearof helping kids. Jassy Dean Trust chairman Greg Dean This year has seen many instances of children needing health support. The success of the Jassy Dean Trust in providing this support has only been possible through the efforts of a multitude of Waiheke people who work tirelessly to help. It s time to thank them. The Jassy Dean trustees are all volunteers and our supporters are people who support without a need for acknowledge- ment or thanks. Their gratitude comes with the knowledge that their giving makes a dif- ference in a child s life. It s big stuff -- it s going beyond ourselves and helping make our island the unique and special place that it is. This year we have funded medical equip- ment, life-saving epi- pens, wheelchairs, spon- sored therapy for autistic and asbergers children, funded counselling for parents and children, paid for parenting courses, arranged count- less Fullers and SeaLink-sponsored ferry tickets, provided funding for childcare, sent 12 children to YMCA camp and lots more. This year, 14-year-old Sahara Adams was diag- nosed with cancer. We will do what it takes to help her recover. Three-year-old Ollie Davies was born pro- foundly deaf. We work with his hard-working father Gary to raise $40,000 so he can hear. The 2010 Sealink Jassy Dean Trust Gar- den Safari, our annual fundraiser, raised $65,000 this year for Waiheke Island children with a medical condition. Already this money is being spent meeting the health needs of children in our community. Needs grow so we need to grow to meet those needs. So that we continue with the success of our fundraising, we need garden owners to regis- ter their interest in taking part in next year s safari gardens. Thank you, wonderful Waiheke Island. As ever, working together, we have proved again that this com- munity does what it takes to care for its chil- dren. Have a happy and safe summer, and a prosper- ous and joyful 2011.
