Virtually unbeatable networking concept

TODAY, thousands of virtual assistants and home-based businesses will be linked Australia wide for a “virtual” morning tea to raise funds for the Cancer Foundation.

An email discussion group has been set up to allow people to stop for morning tea across Australia and, in an online forum, share their experiences and stories on how cancer has touched their lives.

Those experiences and stories will later be compiled into an e-book.

To enter the discussion group, participants need to go to and follow the instructions there.

Participants also will be able to pledge and donate to The Cancer Foundation via a secure online payment system.

The event, organised by the Virtual Assistant Group, runs from 7am until midnight.

Virtual Assistant Group founder Kate Gorce-Macham said the morning tea was a great opportunity to use technology to raise funds.

“Virtual assistants work virtually all the time anyway, so this just seemed an ideal opportunity,” she said.

Virtual assistants are those people offering business services online. The types of business services offered online range from translation services to bookkeeping.

Ms Gorce-Macham hopes to make the virtual morning tea an annual event. Cancer Foundation spokeswoman Lillian Ray said it was exciting to see such an innovative approach applied to cancer research fundraising.
