My name is Sami Glastonbury and I’m the founder of Befrank.
My son Francis (Frank) was born with a congenital heart disease, which has seen our family in and out of hospitals for much of his young life, but I consider myself one of the lucky ones.
I have a wonderful husband, two funny and kind daughters, and a strong, resilient son.
Because of this support, I have the strength to fight.
Without love, kindness and community, the system breaks people. It hasn’t broken me. That’s why I am committed to giving back.
I have always been an open and honest person but Frank unlocked in me a need to be real, authentic and purposeful in every conversation.
You can’t make a difference if you don’t speak up.
I’m an advocate from way back and have had a career in the wine, food, health and wellness space for many years. But I’m also a philanthropist. Among a number of my passion projects, I sit on the board for Heartkids Australia and together we are making an enormous impact on the lives of children and their families all over this country.
Befrank brings my love of these industries and people together with my passion for giving back. So, it made sense for me to create a social enterprise to shake things up and corralling a community to make change.
Join me and the Befrank community and let’s start a conversation.
