We are so excited to share that our phenomenal Co-Founder, Deborra-lee Furness was honored recently as an Officer of the Order of Australia (General Division) for distinguished service to children as an adoption advocate, to not-for-profit organizations as an ambassador, and to the arts.
This is one of Australia’s highest honors for civilians and is for distinguished service of a high degree to Australia or to humanity at large.
For her entire life and career Deborra-lee has been trying to make a difference. From challenging female stereotypes in film and TV roles, to founding Adopt Change and Hopeland, we think you’ll agree with us that she has made a huge impact and richly deserves this recognition.
It is also a trifecta for Deborra-lee’s family as she follows in the footsteps of her mother, and her husband, Hugh, who have also one this prestigious award.
Congratulations Deb! We are so proud of you!
