I recently met up with Jonathan Boynton-Lee, top billing presenter, actor, director, MC and Reach for a Dream Slipper Day Ambassador. At the media launch of Slipper Day 2018, Jonathan was emotional, as he spoke about his involvement doing hospital visits, home visits or funerals that he has attended. It is evident that not only is he making a difference to the lives of the terminally-ill children, but they have affected him where he realises that life is short and valuable.
The quote that he lives by is: Don’t just dream at night… dream all day… dream for a living.
When I ask Johnathan why did he chose Reach for a Dream, he simply responded, “Why not. Why must there be a why. Giving back is such a massive part of who we are as human beings. I will give back without any reason. It is part of who I am and what everyone should do.”
It is evident that Jonathan is very selfless and is using his public profile for a good cause by doing acts of kindness. He recently withdrew his daily ATM limit and gave it all away. Good on you for inspiring me and others.
