Be Generous Not Jealous

I support Tall Poppies is the new Charity Awareness campaign which was launched at the Hancock Prospecting International Women’s Day 2019 on March 22nd at Crown Towers.

The aim of the campaign is to eliminate the Tall Poppy Syndrome in our society, and remove the stigma attached to it by encouraging people to be generous, not jealous.

Founder of the campaign, Barbara McNaught, said people need to be allowed to stand tall above all, and raise high without being cut down for their successes.

Jealously and envy are the roots of the tall poppy syndrome,” the host of Hello Darlink! Talk Show said.

“This can lead to bullying, domestic violence, depression, and destroying people’s self-esteem.”

The number of Tall Poppy ambassadors is growing, with names including Iris Smit – founder and CEO of The Quick Flick, Dana Vulin – published author and internationally known burn survivor, Nez Erok – award winning singer songwriter, domestic violence survivor Katarina Popovic, and Bec Bucci – breast cancer and domestic violence survivor.

We are calling on everyone to embrace their Tall Poppy and share their stories of success.

Support the Tall Poppy Movement by using the hashtags – #generousnotjealous #Isupporttallpoppies and #unleashyourtallpoppy on social media.
