Fitzroy White Ribbon Night 2018

Our annual Facebook auction supports White Ribbon Australia in their campaign to end violence against women.

It’s our creative way of addressing a heartbreaking issue. Instead of asking ‘how on earth can we help?’ we entice family, friends & followers to bid on fashion, homewares, artwork and dining experiences. Really, the generosity starts with the kindness of local shops, business owners and artists. Together we all make a meaningful contribution to an important cause that continues to plague our country.

It’s called Fitzroy White Ribbon Night because that’s where I live. I have three sons of my own who will be taught to love and respect the women in their lives, and I want to continue supporting the efforts of White Ribbon the best way I know how.

This annual online auction supports the important work of White Ribbon, the largest global male-led movement to stop men’s violence against women. With the help of local businesses and my family & friends, we have raised almost $8,000 since 2015 to support White Ribbon’s vital prevention work in schools, workplaces and communities, helping to put an end to violence against women in Australia.

Please RSVP and share our event here.
