Give back with the Give Registry
At Prezzee we love to share "Give-Back initiatives" and when we leanered of the new Give Registry from Myer this really struck a chord. The Give Registry will be able to provide practical assistance to women and children who desperately need support.
The Give Registry, launched this month by Myer ambassador Lauren Phillips, will mirror a traditional gift registry and encourage shoppers to buy “everyday items” that are needed by women and children to rebuild and improve their lives. Each donation will be matched by Myer and distributed to The Salvation Army’s crisis accommodation and women’s refuges.
The Salvation Army’s secretary for women’s ministries, Colonel Karyn Rigley says “One in three women are affected by family violence in Australia. Family violence is also the leading cause of homelessness for women and children and often when a woman leaves a violent situation she leaves with nothing but the clothes on her back.”
What a wonderful concept from Myer and we wish it every success.
