As the holiday lights appear and the festive decorations materialize, let's use this joyous time of year to bring peace to those around us.
November 25th to December 10th, marked the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, an initiative to take commemoration a step further and activate change.
What is beautiful about this time of year is that in the spirit of giving, we can all contribute to making a change in women’s lives. You can make a donation in someone’s name as a gift or purchase a ticket to WomanACT’s Soul of a Warrior Awards Gala. In any form that you give this year, remember that such donations are a step in the right direction, working towards ending violence against women and girls.
And even if a donation is not ideal, awareness and activism are the greatest drivers of change. Share information on Social Media, and use your platforms to express the significance and importance of change, because without all our collaborative voices, we will not be heard.
