Yep, it’s been a while since I’ve been venturing off in the blogging world =O, it may even seem like I disappeared off the grid! Can’t believe that it’s almost October already, the year has simply blown by too quickly. It’s like my perception of time doesn’t really match up to where the year is really at. Do you guys sometimes feel that way?

In short, in between uni’s projects (finally done and dusted 6 projects out of the 7!) woo! Last week was by far the most hectic, 3 major projects including a 48 hour one, till 1am – led the funny results. Like the fact that after 12am, anything and I mean anything becomes ridiculously funny 😉 But all good fun nonetheless!

Anyway, it seems that whenever I take a break from blogging there’s always awesome big news to announce! (Odd random observation there, so let’s keep an eye out for September 2016’s big one!). So for this year, as you may have guessed from my interesting blog title- I’m fundraising for cancer research!!

Introducing Unibookworm’s Cancer Saving Duckies =)!!!

But who are they?

They are my cute rubber duckies that are on a mission to save the world from cancer! =) 😉

Every year the Queensland PA (Princess Alexandra) Foundation (cancer research hospital charity) have this awesome event called the Duck Race!

Known as the biggest charity Duck Race in Australia (we’re talking about 40,000 rubber duckies!) it has a history of running for 9 years. It’s a fun family community event where the duckies are released into the water to race. Best of the all, the event raises vital cancer research funds to save lives! (In 2013, $400,000 was raised, which is amazing!) (PA Research Foundation 2015).

So today, as they say…

“Don’t be a sitting duck and come join us for the race that quacks the nation!”
