Celebrations, Good News & Neknominations - April 2014
Join Us In Celebrating - It's Here
After the tremendous success of Awesome South Africa and You’re Awesome, we are very excited to be launching the next book titled Living in South Africa.
This new book by Derryn Campbell and Regina Gräff is a comprehensive and practical handbook on moving to, working in and enjoying life in South Africa. This guide is useful to all interested in embracing life in South Africa. The 296 colourful pages of carefully researched information are complemented with personal experience and includes helpful hints and recommended resources.
Living in South Africa is a guidebook born out of a desire to share the insights into daily life in South Africa. This book will help to ensure the transition of arriving and living in this beautiful country is a rewarding and fulfilling experience. Living in South Africa will be on the shelves in the bookshops countrywide in the coming week.
Awesome SA is running an introductory offer for the month of April. If you order two copies of the Living in South Africa book from our website then we will include - at no cost - an option of an additional copy of either the Living in South Africa, or the Awesome South Africa or the You’re Awesome book.
More info and sample pages of the book can be viewed our website. www.living-in-south-africa.com

Spreading The Good News
Trish Beaver is an award winning journalist who has worked in the media industry for over 24 years. Her passion is to write stories that inspire people.
Many people avoid reading newspapers because there is so much bad news which makes them feel despondent. Life is tough, but if you only hear bad news then you start to believe that all is bad. Yet there are so many people who are reaching out and creating positive change in South Africa. Despite all the obstacles we face, there are wonderful people with inspiring stories.
These unsung heroes need the media support they deserve. Trish Beaver is highlighting real examples of what people can achieve with optimism, determination and courage. Where intention goes – possibility flows and every success story is a catalyst to spreading hope and inspiration.
Inspiration Works is a project run by Awesome SA to highlight and publicise South Africa’s good news stories. Should you wish to get your (or another’s) inspiring story into the media then we ask you to contact Trish on firstname.lastname@example.org
