Impact100 SA members are passionate in all that they do – passionate about making a difference, passionate about contributing, and passionate about causes, and in the case of our new member Megan Edwards, her passion knows no bounds.
Megan is a retired senior school maths teacher and a committed volunteer in the community, passionate about social justice and access to services and opportunities for all people, particularly those who are experiencing disadvantage. Megan has been a volunteer with Catherine House supporting women experiencing homelessness since 1988 and over the years has volunteered for many community, school and sporting organisations, including at RPH (Radio for the Print Handicapped) where Megan managed a team of volunteers who worked to provide access to a world news service for people with visual impairment and other disadvantages.
When Megan is not volunteering, she is an accomplished bridge competitor, a keen bushwalker and an ardent Port Adelaide football fan. Megan is a founding member of Powerful Women, a supporter’s group that seeks to bring together women from diverse backgrounds and to hear their stories in order to create a stronger, kinder and more connected community.
Megan says she was motivated to join Impact100 SA because of the power of collective impact, knowing that alone, her donation could only do a little to help, but pooled with others donations, together can do so much. Megan says that her experience volunteering and donating has taught her that one person can make a difference.
