FOCUS ON THE PRESENT

WE ARE CELEBRATING THE LOSS OF OUR PARENTS.

 

Gifts come is all shapes and sizes and as children, we where handed the darkest gift of all. Many would say it's a curse, but we have chosen to look at the box of darkness we were handed as a gift. It's taken many years to come to this, often thinking ‘why did this have to happen to us?’.

Gifts come is all shapes and sizes and as children, we where handed the darkest gift of all. Many would say it's a curse, but we have chosen to look at the box of darkness we were handed as a gift. It's taken many years to come to this, often thinking ‘why did this have to happen to us?’.

The gifts we receive in life are often disguised.

 

The deadliest Tsunami in record history takes the lives of 230,000 people in a matter of hours. Arising from the Indian Ocean, the tsunami released as much pent-up power as several thousand atomic bombs. Devastatingly, Sri Lanka was the one of the country's worst hits. More than 30,000 people were swept away by the waves and hundreds of thousands left homeless. Aged eight to seventeen, Rob, Paul, Mattie and Rosie made a harrowing 200km trek across the decimated country to discover what happened to the parents.

 

On this day Rob and Paul Forkan, and their younger siblings, were orphaned.

 

THE MOST IMPORTANT LESSON OUR PARENTS TAUGHT US, DON'T JUST EXIST

Yet our parents brought us up to be strong, and this is why we managed to pick ourselves back up. Seeking a new purpose we started Gandys.

 

10 years later, we are opening our 5 kids campus in Mongolia. The black box we were handed as children has become a gift to thousands of other children across the world. Each purchase with Gandys goes towards our 5 kids campuses that combat the poverty issues faced by each country, providing children with the equal opportunities they deserve. We now have children graduating as doctors and lawyers from our first campus.

In the past 10 years we have travelled to new places around the world and created a community of like minded people who thrive to ‘Don’t Just Exist’ and live life to the fullest.  

 

We are making our parents proud.

OUR PARENTS ARE ALWAYS WITH US

The wave in the letter A, this represents the tsunami that took our parents from us, but never defeated us.

The bird is a tribute to our dad, Kingfisher beer was his favourite.

We use Gold for our logos, representing Mum’s heart of gold.

The Focus On The Present campaign is a reminder that you will always be able to pull through the hardships in life. With the right support and mindset, times will get better.

 

We ask you to share this message, with a loved one, or someone going through a tough time. It’s a reminder that if you’re handed a black box in life, someday you’ll be able to turn it into a gift. Something you don’t look at as a tragedy, but actually the thing that made you realise…

Don't Just Exist

Focus on the Present

If you have been affected by anything you have seen or are experiencing feelings of hopelessness or loneliness, know that you are not alone. Dark days do pass, but please reach out to someone and tell them how you are feeling.
