Wesley Mission takes part in #BeBoldForChange campaign
International Women’s Day, Wednesday 8 March 2017, is an opportunity to honour our sisters, mothers, grandmothers, aunties or friends’ achievements, while also reflecting on past and present struggles faced by women globally.
Internationally both men and women are being asked to #BeBoldForChange by recognising, encouraging or supporting women from our local communities. This campaign is also an opportunity to take action and raise awareness about gender inequality.
The call to #BeBoldForChange cuts to the core of how Wesley Mission works with all of the people we support. As an organisation dedicated to supporting the most vulnerable in our communities, International Women’s Day is an opportunity to applaud and thank our female volunteers, supporters, staff and congregation members who give so much to the community.
Twins, Jayme and Jenny (pictured below) are just two of the many women we wish to celebrate. Co-owners of Frankie and Seoul, an online organic retailer of natural and organic Korean skincare and beauty products, the hair held a pamper event for telephone crisis support volunteers at Lifeline Sydney & Sutherland.
“We were inspired by the amazing work of Lifeline and telephone crisis supporters to redefine beauty as Beauty is Inside-Out, Outside In,” the sisters said. “Frankie and Seoul wants to celebrate the beauty of these amazing Wesley Lifeline volunteers and staff.”
To mark International Women’s Day, we’ve created a Facebook album honouring women from the Wesley Mission family.
If you’re looking for a way to thank the women in your life while helping to further empower vulnerable communities and people, check out our range of International Women’s Day gifts in the Wesley Gift Shop.
