A VERY SPECIAL MOTHERS DAY @ THE LOFT
Show your mum some love and help women in need.
As you may know, domestic violence has skyrocketed in the last couple of years on the back of COVID and lockdowns. Many women escaping domestic violence don't have the time to grab anything but their children before they escape.
We are working with SWAG Family Sydney, a complete non-for-profit organisation feeding the homeless in Sydney every week. They find and provide shelter for those in need, with the owner Rick even taking people into his own home and providing work and a new start for them.
Women seeking refuge are faced with a number of challenges, including no beds being available in shelters. The refuges are not clean or safe. They cater to anyone who needs a roof over their head so the other people are sometimes dealing with drug and alcohol abuse or psychotic episodes.
The conditions of these shelters being unpredictable, unsafe and unavailable, has led to a lot of women living in their cars.
If you don't have an address, you don't get any financial subsidies from the government.
We are supporting SWAG and the women they help this Mothers Day by donating 50% of proceeds made on gifts for mum. Show your support by getting a pressie for your mum @ The Loft!
