Heart of Mary™ supporting the Hope Foundation
Have you heard about the amazing work being achieved by Hope Foundation? Founded by the courageous Bronwen Healy (author of Trophy of Grace) this local Brisbane charity is a service that exists to come alongside women wanting life change from the sex industry and/or addictions. We are so inspired by their cause, and the positive support they are providing to women in our local area that we have taken them on board as an ongoing charity we contribute too.
How do we do this? One way is that the team at All For Mary™ regularly host salon days for women cared for by the Hope Foundation. We open the salon on a Monday creating an exclusive experience for the group; the team donate their time, and spoil the Hope Foundation women with fresh haircuts and blowdrys (and the knowledge that they are valued in the process). Are you a hairdresser that would like to contribute your skills to these days? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for upcoming dates and info.
Another way we contribute to their cause is by collecting and delivering the following items to them. You can help us shower these women with even more value by donating any of these items you may have available into All For Mary™ during any of our trading hours.
Beauty Products: Do you have any items at home you have hardly used, that didn’t work for you or you no longer want? Drop these items into the salon and we will arrange to get these into the hands of those who can and would love to use them. While it seems like such a small thing to do it makes a big difference to them.
Clothing: Do you have clothes that have been sitting in your wardrobe untouched? Items that no longer fit you yet are still in great condition? Use these items to spoil the Hope women with, helping increase their confidence and sense of value. Drop these items into the salon, making sure they have been freshly washed and are undamaged.
Other items that will help are non-perishable food items, nice spray deodorant and feminine hygiene products.
Words: Words of encouragement are so powerful! They can touch the soul of a person and create hope for them and their future. Are you someone who is great with words? Contribute specifically to the ladies cared for at Hope Foundation, or even the women that work there, by writing a letter of encouragement. You can even create a quote or reminder of their value with a short line to inspire them on their journey. Drop these into the salon and we will pass them on.
Spread the word: Help out this cause by sharing this blog with others and asking if they would like to join Heart of Mary™ on this cause. The more people helping the more support Heart of Mary™ can be.
