Homeless Women's Project
The S.H.I.F.T. Project aims to provide an educational program and stable housing to help homeless women shift from disadvantage to empowerment.
Kate volunteers at the Byron-based project every week by offering trauma sensitive yoga and meditation sessions to help improve the women's overall wellbeing.
Yogafari supports the project by giving the women a spot on the Byron Bay Yoga Safari so that they can enjoy a weekend of care and nurturing.
If you would like to donate to the homeless women's project please bring clothing, toiletries or small gifts with you to the retreat.
Every donation is appreciated and will help the women to feel supported and move towards a future where they can follow their own hearts.
Christmas Bags for Homeless Women
You have the power to make life better for a woman experiencing homelessness or poverty this Christmas. Donate to the Yogafari Christmas collection "Christmas Love Bags". Provide toiletries, gourmet treats and everyday luxuries to homeless women, women at risk or women experiencing domestic violence in Byron Bay. It’s simple. First of all, choose a handbag you no longer use. Then, fill it with items that would make a woman feel special, pop in a thoughtful note or Christmas card and show her someone cares. Show her that she matters because everyone deserves to feel that way.
Next time you’re at the shops, collect a few items for your Christmas handbag. No matter how you celebrate Christmas with your family, this will be the most meaningful and appreciated gift you give this year.
WHAT GOES IN THE BAG?
Your handbag can be packed full of useful things and little luxuries for someone experiencing homelessness or in crisis. So what do homeless women need? Chances are, she needs the same personal care and sanitary items you need. Especially relevant items are toiletries, scented candles or jewellery. Because nobody should go without life’s little essentials!
Please get the bag(s) to us by 20 December so that the women have them for Christmas.
You can drop your bag to Kate in Byron Bay, send it in the post, or Kate will come and pick it up from you!
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
