AUSTRALIAN Catholic University (ACU) students and graduates redefine success.
Beyond income or possessions, ACU students find success in empowering themselves and others to make a real impact.
Take Orange Sky Laundry, started by friends Lucas Patchett, Nicholas Marchesi and David Tubb as a means of helping those doing it tough to do their washing.
“All three of us were involved in food vans for our friends doing it tough when we were at school and realised that hygiene wasn’t something that had really been thought of before,” David said.
Now general manager of operations, David said the washing machines in 17 vans around the country are a catalyst for connection: “Once the laundry is in the machine there isn’t much to do aside from having a really positive, genuine and non-judgemental conversation”.
