Goodness, how time has flow. We have been so busy supporting the campaign to prevent violence against women that we haven't had the time to update our progress here.
We are proud to support the West Australian based registered charity PVAW (Preventing Violence Against Women).
We were very proud to sponsor the 3rd Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event in Perth held on 20th March. We pick up all costs and work with an awesome committee behind the scenes to organise this event.
All donations, walking fees, raffle ticket proceeds go direct to White Ribbon Australia. That brings our total fundraising effort to well over $90,000 for the past three events!!
Although we are passionate about the preventative side of the complex issue of violence against women with White Ribbon Australia being our main charity beneficiary, we gladly donated some Easoto product to two Perth Christmas campaigns for women and children supported by women's refuges.
It really made our hearts warm to see our Totes and Handbags filled with cosmetics, toiletries and other gifts.
We have included a link to a video regarding the Project Purple Santa campaign - click here.
The CFMEU-WA members once again provided a bumper Christmas collection; items for women, toys for children of all ages, even practical gifts like baby/child car seats, starter packs of linen, kettle etc. Here's a photo of some of the massive bounty ready for collection and distribution:
If you now have an Easoto from one of these campaigns, we wish you and yours the very best for 2016 and beyond. You are stronger than you ever thought!
We are very proud to let you know that despite the stormy weather, once again we had a fabulous turnout for the 2nd Perth Walk a Mile in Her Shoes for White Ribbon Australia on Sunday 17th May 2015. Final tally was over $42,470 raised for White Ribbon Australia!!
Easoto believe passionately in this cause and covered all costs and organisation. ALL funds raised from registration fees, donations and raffles have been passed on to White Ribbon Australia, a male-led charity dedicated to preventing men’s violence against women.
All details are on the event webpage, including terrific photos of the good men of Perth in their finest heels.
