For those who aren’t in Australia and may not know or have heard about Samuel’s cause – he made a promise to his terminally ill sister that he would raise awareness of breast cancer.  How is he doing this – by trying to raise $1 million and set a new Guinness World Record for the most distance travelled on a unicycle – yes a unicycle.  I watched Samuel talk about this last week on The Project whilst he was in Adelaide,  I’m not surprised that he stopped in to see Rob & Guy (Samuel is also a well known Australian actor for those who are unaware).

So please donate via the Garvan Institute for Medical Research (or by sending a cheque or in person – more info here) to an amazing cause, not just because Rob took his pic with Samuel, but because we all know someone who has been affected by this disease.

    *waves* @Mema I was literally thinking about you this morning. Hope all is ok. It is true to lose someone to this disease and more importantly for a child to lose a parent.

    Thanks @Sue. Is it weird that I’m curious whether Rob had a go on the unicycle? It seems like something he would do. Oh to be a fly on the wall …

    Love the photo. 🙂 What a wonderful promise to make to his sister. As a BC survivor myself, I applaud Samuel for his work to raise awareness and I hope he’s successful in reaching his $1 million goal . Thanks, Maria, for the info on Samuel’s cause and the links to donate. It’s a great example of why RPAU is the classiest Rob site out there.

    I’ve always had a soft spot for Samual and this has just justified that interest. My heart goes out to all my RPAU family that have been effected by BC.
    A wonderful post Maria. Thank you for the link.

    LOL – Maria – The boys all look so proud in this photo. I wonder if the unicycle has anything to do with that
