Did you know that 1 in 5 children, in Australia alone, are experiencing sexual assault?
It's a silent torment and it's heartbreaking to think there are so many children suffering in silence. It's an awkward and uncomfortable subject to approach - but we need to start the conversation. We need to start the dialogue so we can break the silence and protect the innocent children that are part of this statistic.
I know it can be overwhelming. That's why when my lovely sister-in-law, Kellie Windle (who works at Bravehearts) asked me to take part in raising funds for the upcoming White Balloon Day, I didn't hesitate.
With brush in hand and a heavy heart, I wanted to create a print with words that gave hope. That no matter what these children have suffered, that we can make a difference, starting today, by raising awareness and raising much needed funds in support of this selfless charity.
The outcome is this print:
Available at an affordable price of $15 for A4 or $25 for A3 with every cent of the profits going to Bravehearts.
You can purchase your copy here:
Available for purchase until this Thursday 7th September. Your support in this means so much to so many.
