CONGRATS THE NAPPY COLLECTIVE

The Nappy Collective first birthday on www.engagingwomen.com.au

It’s hard to fathom how much The Nappy Collective has achieved in just one year.

For one they’ve collected a whopping 109,669 NAPPIES. Giving practical and emotional support to so many mothers and children in crisis.

SERIOUSLY AMAZING.

I was so honoured to be invited to their first birthday celebrations at Melbourne’s Prince of Wales hotel.

The room was full of good energy as host Natalie Bassingthwaighte and the gal who came up with the idea Sandra Jacobs thanked supporters and sponsors.

Natalie Bassingthwaighte told guests women’s issues are very close to her heart; she was one of five girls growing up and she has little ones of her own.

Sandra Jacobs explained how a half finished packet of nappies is worth everything to many families.

Jocelyn Bignold, CEO of McAuley Community Services for Women a 24 hour crisis centre reminded us of why we were there:

THERE ARE 65,000 REPORTS OF FAMILY VIOLENCE IN AUST EACH YEAR.

35% OF HOMELESSNESS IS CAUSED BY FAMILY VIOLENCE AND MANY PEOPLE ARE LIVING ON A BUDGET OF 40-50 DOLLARS A WEEK.

THE NAPPY COLLECTIVE NAPPIES ARE A PRACTICAL RESPONSE AT A TIME WHEN PEOPLE NEED IT MOST.
