Dinners that make a difference
The world is full of people making amazing contributions without recognition. MAD allows some of their stories to be heard.
What motivates people to make a difference? What inspires us to challenge injustice? How can we contribute?
MAD is a not for profit, voluntary organisation who seeks to give voice to those in our community who have chosen to support, change, inspire, challenge and make things happen to make our world a better place. Even the smallest action can make a difference.
We invite you to be part of our community- Join us for a feast for the mind, the taste buds and an opportunity to connect with Inspiration, Courage, Innovation.
Thank you for your contribution

Bicycles for Humanity
Andy Gild is the President & Co-Founder of Bicycles for Humanity
Bicycles can change lives! Every year in Australia 1.5 million bikes are sold across Australia- It is estimated that around half of these will end up unused or abandoned. Since 2008 Bicycles for Humanity have been putting this huge resource to work in some of the poorest countries in the world. Join us to hear how this adventure started and how these container loads of unused bikes change lives and communities.
