Meet our Ambassador Bonnie Gillies
You may know Bonnie Gillies as our trusted Oz Beauty Expert, our go-to for everything hair, make-up and well-being!
Bonnie is a true beauty and health addict. Being passionate about educating and helping her community, Bonnie became an official Kiss Goodbye to MS Ambassador this year to help raise awareness for the need of MS research and raise the profile of MS by educating her predominantly female followers.
Bonnie was first touched by MS when she experienced a numb spot on her back for more than a year. After speaking to her doctor at the time, the initial diagnosis was MS. Young and female, Bonnie did fit the typical picture of MS. Thankfully it didn’t turn out to be MS, but the experience made Bonnie realise that this easily could have been her.
As a young mother in her 30’s and prime of her life, it really hit home for Bonnie. Today, Bonnie is determined to do what she can to help raise awareness and funds for MS research.
“My whole career has been built off my passion for helping women look and feel great through beauty and well-being. I have a loyal following of Australian women in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, and therefore the ideal platform to help raise awareness and most importantly contribute to finding a cure for MS which affects mainly women”, said Bonnie.
Earlier this year, Bonnie lit up the crowd at our Kiss Goodbye to MS Launch Breakfast as our MC, where she helped launch The May 50K and met our incredible supporters, ambassadors and fundraisers. She also hit the ground running by taking part in this year’s The May 50K and raising an outstanding $1,216 for life-changing research.
Last words for Bonnie? She is super excited to be an official ambassador for Kiss Goodbye to MS! Welcome to the family Bonnie, we are so excited to have you on board!
