INTRODUCING OUR FIRST TQF AMBASSADOR, JACKIE LOEB!
Winner of the prestigious and iconic 2016 Australian ‘MO Award’ for ‘Best Live Comedy Act’ and selected as an official Australian juror for the ‘2017 Eurovision Song Competition’, Jackie Loeb has maintained her reputation as one of today’s most hilarious and multi-talented Comedians while simultaneously distinguishing herself as an MC, Actor, Vocalist, Musician and loyal follower of ‘The Cats of Instagram’.
Founder of The Q Foundation, Jennifer Jefferies had this to say about Jackie.
“It’s with great excitement that we welcome Jackie as an ambassador for The Q Foundation. I approached Jackie as she has a great talent for delivering deep yet necessary messages with sensitivity and compassion, and engages her audience in a way that makes people stand up and take notice.”
What did Jackie have to say about being an ambassador for The Q Foundation?
“I am deeply honoured to be an Ambassador for ‘The Q Foundation’. I have been fortunate in that I have had access to an education, clean drinking water and to live in a country where at the end of the day I can lay my head on a pillow and know that I am safe. I believe every child should be entitled to the same life essentials. No child should have to go without food, water or an education. And children throughout the world should be able to lay their young joyful heads on a pillow and feel the same sense of safety too.”
