The White Ribbon Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to eliminate violence against women, through education campaigns and promoting cultural change.
White Ribbon Day is held on the 25th of November and is signified through the selling of ribbons and wristbands to highlight the importance of the issue. This afternoon I was invited to the Suzanne Grae store at Eastland where a cheque of $220,000 was presented to the White Ribbon Foundation.
Suzanne Grae has been a prominent supporter of the White Ribbon Foundation and its Eastland store sold the highest number of ribbons and wristbands across its network of stores. The cheque was presented by the CEO of Suzanne Grae to Andrew O’Keefe, the Chairperson of the White Ribbon Foundation, and demonstrates the commitment of the Maroondah community towards social causes.
