A chance meeting with a real M.A.D (Making a difference) person
She’s soft natured, softly spoken but a lioness beneath her slight build.
I stumbled upon this pop up shop in the heart of Midland and the message is clear, it’s about social responsibility in our own back yard and effecting communities thousands of miles away.
Belinda tells me about the companies and products she supports are always being researched to verify a positive effect in society.
I asked Belinda, why she’s giving her time, energy and money into this project when she obviously is working through her own setbacks.
Belinda shares how she received a gift a couple of years back in the form of a transplant and feels that she’s honouring the person that she’s never met but gave the ultimate for her to be alive.
Belinda wakes up every morning with a sense of purpose.
I dig a little further and find out about her upbringing and what motivates her.
Belinda casually shares how her family have fostered 14 children and her heart goes out to children that don’t stand a chance as custodians of the state.
Belinda clearly reflects the spirit of a social entrepreneur taking her passion into the courts looking to change a broken system.
“After you give these children a safe home and nurtured them with love, it’s heartbreaking to give them back knowing the children won’t get the love they deserve”
People like Belinda, a local champion of everything that really matters isn’t alone in the struggle for a social conscience to thread us into a wholesome society.

She’s about to launch an online business.
More power to her.
