THE George Khouzame Foundation has a new logo for its 2010 Big Give charity event, thanks to Revesby’s Broderick Gillawarna School student Emma Alkheder. The organisation approached the special-needs school and asked the students to create a picture about what the Big Give meant to them. The organisation’s marketing and development manager, Priscilla Khouzame, said Emma, 13, stood out from her peers after creating a picture that symbolised exactly what she wanted. “The way her hands were lifted was like she was giving someone a gift. It was the perfect interpretation of the Big Give,” Ms Khouzame said. The Big Give focuses on making the dreams of five children with a disability come true. Ms Khouzame said the children will be chosen from five special-needs schools across NSW. “We will speak with the teachers and see who they believe is in need of a Big Give. We will place all the students’ names in a box and pick out five,” she said. The chosen children will be presented with their Big Give at the organisation’s charity ball in May. Details: 9709 6588.
