Your gift to Guide Dogs will change many lives
It costs over $35,000 to breed, raise and train an amazing Guide Dog like Teena,
who was provided at no cost to Beth.
For Beth, having Teena by her side doesn't just mean greater independence.
It means being the mum she wants to be to her three children.
Two out of three Guide Dogs, like Teena, are made possible thanks to gifts in Wills.
Please leave a gift in your Will to Guide Dogs, Australia's most trusted charity,
and help make sure that when someone like Beth loses their sight,
they don't lose their freedom as well.

PSEUDO ECHO OPENING BAND
Carlisle will perform a
mix of international
hits and songs from
her upcoming album.
Carlisle should attract a full house
American pop star Belinda Carlisle is
one of a few artists who belonged to
arguably the most successful female
rock band of all time and whose
successive solo career still attracts
international full-house crowds three
In March, the ex-Go-Go s singer
will perform the band s global hits live
in the Australian capital, including We
Got The Beat and Our Lips Are Sealed.
She ll also perform her top solo
singles, Heaven Is A Place on Earth --
which cracked second on the
Australian charts -- Summer Rain, I
Get Weak and Runaway Horses.
While most audiences explode with
energy when Summer Rain breaks, Ms
Carlisle said it was particularly
noticeable Down Under.
"I think in Australia, it s my
favourite song to perform because
people know the whole choreography
to it and that happens no other place in
the world," she said. "And the reaction
that I get from that song there is
always over the top -- it s a lot of fun."
The Go-Go s reportedly made
history as the first, and possibly the
only, all-female band that both wrote
their own songs and played their own
instruments to top the Billboard album
charts. The group split in 1985 after
seven years together. Ms Carlisle then
embarked on her hugely successful
solo career which continues today with
sell out shows.
She will throw in a new cover and a
couple of songs from her upcoming
album into this national tour, but she
knows her audiences are desperate for
"I love seeing the joy on people s
faces at these songs that have stood the
test of time. Most people who come
and have never seen me live before are
surprised by the power of the songs
live and also that my voice is a lot
more unique and much more powerful
in person than it is on record.
And although the 57-year-old has
played those songs countless times
over the years, she has a few more
shows in her yet.
"I still really enjoy singing and
travelling, it s still a lot of fun," she
said. "I ll keep doing it until that
Australia band Pseudo Echo will
join Ms Carlisle on tour, with hits such
as Don't Go, Listening and Funky
