Who exactly is Andrew Griffiths?
Today I’m known for being a bestselling author and a global presenter. Of course I’m an overnight success right? Well like most overnight successes, where I am today is the end result of a lot of hard work, taking more than my fair share of risks, falling over often but always getting back up, dusting myself off, learning my lesson and keeping on going.
Over many years, I’ve learned that there are three important keys to success - resilience, belief and determination. Master these and everything changes. See how it changed me...

Standing up for what I Believe In
Because we’ve all got to stand for something, right?
I grew up as an orphan and like many children in the same position, this lead to a less than perfect start to life. This is the reason I accepted an invitation to become an Ambassador for the Abused Child Trust (ACT for Kids). Act for Kids has one main aim - to stop all forms of child abuse. They are an incredibly dedicated group, who have to deal with some very ugly situations. They never lose track of the value of each and every child.

Sadly I understand that people can be pretty terrible to each other, but I simply can't understand people being cruel to animals, especially those we are charged to care for and protect. I strongly support the RSPCA in an ongoing capacity and I have also made a point of providing for them in my will. Why did I tell you this? Because I would love you to do the same.
Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary. On a recent trip to Cradle Mountain in Tasmania I fell in love with wombats. There had been a huge blizzard, leaving the landscape covered with snow, except for lots of brown and grey balls casually digging holes and looking for grass. On doing a little research I came across Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary in NSW - and I was very moved by the work they do to help rehabilitate and relocate injured and abandoned wombats (sadly there are many). Anyone this passionate about helping wombats in need, should be supported - so I do. And I encourage you to do the same. Check out the Sleepy Burrows website - the videos are beautiful.
When I was a teenager someone very close to me died from cancer. I saw how her life was extended through regular blood transfusions, and each extra day was very precious. I started donating blood at the same time and have done so for 30 years. In recent times I have started to donate plasma as often as I can. Every donation can save up to 6 lives. If that is not the absolute best way to contribute to others, I don't know what is. If you are afraid of needles, don't be a baby! It doesn't hurt and you get a biscuit and a glass of orange juice as well. Awesome.
When I was a young boy, and my life was challenging to say the least, I remember befriending a local Salvation Army Officer. He looked out for me, made sure I was OK and protected me from some less than savoury people who actively sought out troubled children. I have never forgotten this man's kindness. Over the years I have actively helped the Salvation Army with fundraising and promotional activities. Sure, they have had some hard times in the press, and some members who did pretty bad things in the past, but every single member of the Salvos that I have met or worked with have been extraordinary individuals in every way.
