Hey Everyone, I am really pleased to announce that I have 2 new songs for download! accompanied by limited edition prints by Chris Colohan & Ben Soedradjit with all profits going to the Women’s Domestic Violence Crisis Service.
I chose to donate the proceeds to WDVCS because they are a not for profit and do incredible work supporting woman & children who suffer at the hands of their abusers. I believe that domestic violence is a national emergency. The fact that in Australia, one woman is killed every week by her partner or ex-partner is shocking & frightening. We need to create and continue discussion about it to bring it more to the surface. I can write a song about it but organisations like WDVCS are doing real work & need our support.
Women’s Domestic Violence Crisis Service of Victoria (WDVCS) is the state-wide not-for-profit service for women and children experiencing violence and abuse from a partner or ex-partner, another family member or someone close to them. WDVCS provides emergency accommodation, a free 24-hour crisis line, outreach services, advocacy, referral, and information and support services to enable women and children to become – and stay – free from violence.
