We are so excited to be part of this incredible collaboration with this AMAZING group of people!
The Sophie tote bag will make the perfect Christmas gift this year. Lovingly and thoughtfully designed from sustainable materials, this will be the best tote bag for the summer! But knowing you're helping women in our communities survive family violence is the real gift.
Family violence affects 1 in 3 New Zealand Women, yet most of it is completely hidden. New Zealand emergency services receive a family violence call out every 4 minutes, and this is tipped to double in the next year, as the domestic violence pandemic continues to spread.
100% of the profits raised from the Sophie Tote Bag will be used to provide Safelets for people in need.
Safelets can help keep women who are experiencing family violence safe by getting help to their location quickly, gathering evidence so Police can deal with perpetrators effectively, and keeping women and children safe when they leave harmful family situations.
Special Thanks to the wonderful people at Ico Traders, Rachel Hay Design, MiseryLand, Studio Home Gardening, Christchurch Aunties and Te Whare Tiaki Refuge.
