I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work of White Ribbon Australia and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in White Ribbon Australia's Trek for Respect.
What inspired me to align myself with White Ribbon?
I am all about communicating the need of financial, employment and education independence for young women throughout their life, no matter what relationships you have. One of the many barriers to leave an abusive relationship is perceived economic necessity: where your partner may control the finances or be the sole source of finances for the family. Another barrier is perceived limited employment opportunities to break away after years of childcare responsibilities.
I am a huge advocate for taking control of your own financial education, maintaining your networks for further career opportunities and nurturing further education.
As a daughter and granddaughter to a line of hard working independent women this is a message I want to pass to my daughters so with the right support, this is not a barrier that usually stops a lot of women from leaving a bad relationship.
Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about White Ribbon Australia, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.
Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
