Hi, my name is Stephen Whittaker and I want to support LIFESAVER and win The Best Job in the World competition with the Australian Tourist Board
I am a full time Carer and nature lover who has made it to the final 25 out of 100,000 contestants across the globe in The Best Job In The World Competition, more information can be found here http://www.australia.com/best-jobs.aspx. The particular category I am featured in, is the Queensland Park Ranger position. When I win I will be working in the Australian Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef on behalf of Tourism Australia.
How does this connect with LIFESAVER?
I first came across the LIFESAVER technology in 2009, where I saw the captivating TED talk by Michael Pritchard, Inventor Founder. My initial reaction was one of awe and I thought ‘why give a starving person a fish, when you can give them a fishing rod!’ This is the same concept when applied to LIFESAVER – using technology to allow people to find and use their local water source, but filter it into sterile drinking water without needing bottled water or to wait for costly infrastructure that wouldn’t happen.
How I need your support
The top 3 contestants will be announced on the 15th May 2013, and I need all the help and support I can get. I want to win the chance to have the ‘best job in the world’ and also support LIFESAVER by giving the gift of water. So, how can you help me? Well ‘sharing is caring’ so share this blog on your social media sites, tweet, post and tell the world about my pledge to give the gift of water and have the best job in the world – an amazing achievement I think you will agree.
You can also use the hashtag #ivoteforste on social media sites, so please use this to help spread my pledge to help LIFESAVER when I win the best job in the world in Australia!
My promise to LIFESAVER
When I win, I would like to donate 1000AUD (approx £650) of my salary to LIFESAVER, to purchase LIFESAVER jerrycans to send out to The Paskay Charity in Peru. LIFESAVER systems have agreed to allow me to double my purchase of LIFESAVER jerrycans for the same amount of money, so I can now send out 40,000L of clean water rather than 20,000L! A great and generous amount of support to give me and those really in need; and a big thank you to LIFESAVER.. You can find out more about the charity here:- http://www.paskay.org
