Stacey Huish for the last 2 years embarked on a journey to collect 1000 stories for a book project for children. The book was entitled: 1000 Ripple Effects.
All 1000 stories in the book were written to help answer life's unanswered questions for those kids out there who had no one.
Stacey mentioned this project was not just for the children. This project was about creating 1000 Ripple Effects to create sustainable generational change for children.
We are naturally very curious and wanted to find out more. We asked Stacey, What is a ripple effect?
A Ripple Effect is an action that continues for a long time, is passed along to everyone it comes in contact with. Just like knowledge being passed down from father to son, or mother to daughter. This continues for generations and generations.
My whole life, I have started movements.
Back in my first year of TAFE, I took the bus and noticed that no one said Thank you to the bus drivers. This upset me quite a lot. I did something about it. I spent 12 months getting on and off every bus in Brisbane. As I exited the bus, I would say loudly “Thank you, have a great day!”
The passengers, started following my lead, and soon the Ripple Effect of Thank You spread to Sydney, and New Zealand. Passengers everywhere were acknowledging the bus drivers.
Why are you creating 1000 Ripple Effects?
To create sustainable generational change for children. To do this, we need to break old patterns that have not been working. With the right education, knowledge and skills, we can change a whole generation and have it last for many generations to come. We can excite the hearts of young people to live empowered conscious lives of passion. Making positive and life-lasting change through creating a sense of significance and belonging in everyone a Ripple Effect touches.
In the future, I will be giving every child the opportunity to learn effective communication skills, parenting skills, and other life skills that will help them move into adulthood. These are some of the Ripple Effects that will be implemented over time.
Tell us more about this very first Ripple Effect?
The Ripple Effect I am creating right now is the Very First Ripple Effect of 1000 Ripple Effects in total. This one is to strengthen the financial position of the community. A strong financial position allows families to live freely, take care of their health, and have fun in life. With money, they can change their entire lives.

I ran parenting skills training for 20+ years on a donation basis. Everybody paid whatever they could afford. My heart has always been in making sure families had the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed. During those teaching years, it was made clear. There was one thing that truly made the difference to every family. Every family I taught had it. Some families had more and some families had less. But it was the the deciding factor for everything they wanted to do and how they did it. This one thing made every family decision easy and hard.”
Now they had the tools to succeed as a family, they needed the money.
The path to money is an individual journey. During my teaching years, I watched many families constantly struggle on a daily basis to make ends meet. Parenting skills was not the only thing families needed. To help them strengthen their financial position, I draw upon my business knowledge. Having successfully grown 6 start up businesses, showing others how to Make Money has been a major part of my success. I am passing down my knowledge to them. Giving them the skills needed to strengthen their financial position.
Just like the Thank You Ripple Effect with bus drivers, I am hoping that strengthening the financial position of the community will also continue to make a difference for years to come. A Ripple Effect that leaves a lasting legacy in the hearts of many.
Why are you focusing on the stay at home mums?
Because mums deserve to be supported
Because mums are doing the most important work.
Mums are there 24/7 looking after the children. Mums are everything for their kids. Mums spend all their time teaching, leading, guiding them, caring for them, comforting them and most importantly loving them.
I have a real soft spot for mums. Having been a mum to over 30 kids myself... My heart always goes out the mums.... some days they do it tougher than other days....
I do have to say this....
To all the mums out there.... thank you for wanting to be a mum. Thank you for not giving up on your children from the get-go. For being there from the initial cry, to the cry over a scraped knee, from the first word to the first day of the school, and from the first time you held your child to now, as you swear to never let them go. You are a true inspiration, and your light shines through your children. You deserve a thank you every day, for you chose to never give up, you chose to love.
