Our non-profit organization partners with women and children in domestic violence shelters in Adelaide offering a handmade comfort scarf and inspirational message for winter.
"To the broken and brave who know that when the stakes are the highest, kindness matters the most"

About

Hi I'm Rachael and I am finally ready to tell my life story through the powerful use of social media and how I am turning some horrific experiences in my life into beauty for women and children who are going through these experiences right now.
It has taken me years to recover from domestic violence situations and to know that it was not my fault. Partially growing up in a shelter to leaving a partner; I now know how to love and support myself to not fall into those situations again, and, most importantly not imitate the actions of the people who chose to treat me badly.
We all need to be loved and I believe the giving of a scarf for winter next year, from people who have survived domestic violence, will go towards health and recovery to know that this is only temporary.
