Rush recently returned from a trip to the Philippines in support of the not-for-profit organisation Good Return. She and colleague, Sydney corporate partner Kate Jordan, observed Good Return’s work firsthand before embarking on a fourday fundraising trek up Mt Madjaas, the highest peak in the Philippines. To date, the two women have raised over $17,000 for the cause. Good Return works to create long-lasting change in the lives of some of the poorest people living in the Asia-Pacific region by providing small loans and banking services, as well as financial education and skills-building training to help deliver long-term benefits to families and individuals facing poverty. “What appeals most to us about Good Return is that what it does is empower the poor, particularly women, to lift themselves and their families out of poverty,” says Rush.
