Strive To Be Kind
About Strive To Be Kind
Strive To Be Kind is held every year during July to promote positive behaviours and raise awareness for the prevention of family and domestic violence. The Allison Baden-Clay Foundation is raising funds to deliver programs that empower and prevent domestic and family violence through education.
In 2018, Strive To Be Kind will focus on how ‘we all have a voice’, and how this voice should be used to spread kindness. Through this message we aim to bring attention to the fact that verbal and emotional abuse is a common sign and behaviour within domestic and family violence, with one in four women experiencing verbal and emotional abuse by a current or former partner.
We are also encouraging the community to get involved by baking and sharing your Kindness Cookie recipe and engaging with us on social media by using the hashtag #FillYourselfWithKindness throughout the month of July.
Strive To Be Kind Day- Friday July 27, 2018
A part of the Strive To Be Kind campaign is Strive To Be Kind Day. On this day people are encouraged to wear yellow and spread positivity and kindness. The Allison Baden-Clay Foundation also hosts the Strive To Be Kind Luncheon, this year being held at Victoria Park Golf Complex and raising funds for Griffith University’s MATE Bystander Program.
There are a number of ways you can get involved and show your support for The Allison Baden-Clay Foundation. Even the smallest act of wearing yellow on Strive To Be Kind Day, Friday July 27, 2018 is a great way to show your support.
