I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I LOVE it when companies put their money where their heart is and support campaigns for the greater good of the community and not just their bottom line.
Today, instead of my usual Fab Friday style tip post, I’m joining in with bloggers around the world who are “speaking out” about domestic violence and the incredible destruction it leaves in its wake.
Which is why I was stoked to learn that fashion chain store, Suzanne Grae, has been supporting the White Ribbon Campaign throughout the year and especially this month in the lead up to White Ribbon Week next week.
White Ribbon‘s pledge is to stop men’s violence against women. By swearing the White Ribbon oath, Australian men and boys are committing to stand up for the women in their lives. Asking Australian men to make the oath brings men and women together to work towards a common goal, never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women.
The cause was chosen by Suzanne Grae staff as its dedicated charitable cause and $250,000 has been raised throughout the year. This month, there are limited edition products for sale in store, which you can purchase to help make a difference and grow awareness around this campaign. On top of this, Suzanne Grae will give $1 from the sale of any white product next week to White Ribbon.
“We are so proud of our involvement with the White Ribbon cause as it is one that affects all Australians. At Suzanne Grae our efforts are aimed at the prevention of violence against women through education and addressing this devastating issue. Our team will never walk away from a challenge and this year we aim to raise even more funds and awareness to support White Ribbon.” – Suzanne Grae CEO Carole Molyneux
