The 2010 New Zealander of the Year

Posted by Steve Koerber on August 10, 2010

Last night I was privileged to be invited to the book launch of Ray Avery’s book “Rebel With A Cause”.  I knew little about the great Ray Avery beforehand and I’m looking forward to reading his book as soon as possible.

If you know nothing about Ray you can read some more here.  Congratulations Ray, you are an inspiration to us all!

This is what really touched me during the night – During his short speech Ray shared a story about the Corporate Cab driver who had picked him up from his Mt Eden home and taken him to Sky City for the book launch.  The driver refused to charge Ray a fare, stating that because Ray had done so much for people all around the world, the least he could do was give him a free ride.  A great story of generosity from someone so generous.
