I wish to inform you that I recently appeared on the Channel 10 television show Have You Been Paying Attention which aired on Monday 25 September 2017. As part of its usual practice, Have You Been Paying Attention provides an appearance fee of $1,000 to those who appear on the show. I asked that Have You Been Paying Attention instead directly provide the $1,000 to a charity in my local electorate, Very Special Kids. Very Special Kids and its hospice provides specialised respite care for children from across Victoria, and provides their families with the support they need while dealing with disability, major illness, and end-of-life care. As a long term support of Very Special Kids I was pleased to have the fee instead directed to their very important work.
