What can your donation do for someone in need?
There are so many amazing Charities out there asking for donations to create awareness of their cause but that is exactly where your money goes - to create more awareness. While this of course is extremely important it's not what most people envisaged their money doing when they agree to help. This is what sets Hands Off apart from so many other Charities. Over 90% of the funds raised through donations and fundraisers go straight to helping the survivors of sexual assault and their families. This mainly is given in the form of a voucher of the survivors choice. It could be a voucher for a family entertainment package, a day stress-free at no cost to them to the Movies, Bowling or even Jump Trampoline Centre. Some may choose a pamper voucher for a Massage, Beauty Treatment or Natural Therapies. Some choose broader vouchers such as Westfield or Coles Myer and therefore can use them to help with everyday expenses such as food, school supplies or petrol. Whatever their choice remember this small act of kindness can make a huge difference in someone's life.
In addition to the vouchers we also provide Care Packages for SECASA (South Eastern Centre Against Sexual Assault) to distribute that can be given to males, females and children. The care packages are just another way to show survivors and their families that there are people out there who care and want them to heal.
