Hands bring Hope to raise awareness of Domestic Violence
Domestic Violence shatters lives.
The impact on children is debilitating and often long term.
The Redcliffe Area Youth Space and Chameleon Housing are dedicated to working with the victims of abuse, assault, domestic violence and other horrific issues; both organisations actively support other disadvantaged young people as a part of their daily work.
The second initiative is the "Together We Can" fund which supports parents who are encountering financial hardship as a result of escaping from domestic violence. This initiative is about the children of those parents and it will fund things like:
specialised trauma counselling for any child exposed to violence and abuse;
school excursion costs for those children;
sporting fees; and
other special items that help make the life of a child the special experience it should be.
Every cent donated will be spent only on children in need who have experienced some type of abuse, or who have been involved in a domestic violence incident. No administrative fees will be taken out of the fund.
Any donation above $2.00 is eligible for a tax receipt for donating to a registered charity.
