Writing on Raising Misters has been the most amazing experience. It was a little project I wanted to try and I’ve loved every minute of it. The stories and comments you’ve shared have made it all the more wonderful.

A few months ago after witnessing the increasing and horrific acts of domestic violence in and around my community I organised The Hand Up Donation Drive. The generosity of people was overwhelming and together we were able to provide the women residing in the refuge of My Friends’ Place with clothing and food and helped furnish the second refuge which opened a couple of weeks ago. 

I’ve recently been asked onto the Board as the new Donation Coordinator which I gratefully accepted. It’s a volunteer position and I’m thrilled to be a part of something that is truly helping these women. It’s a big role and I’m throwing myself into it and with this, my day job and raising my two misters, spare time is something I’ll be a little short of.

It’s with a big lump in my throat that I say farewell to you and to Raising Misters. I really want to give my new role with MFP my all so for now at least I’m saying goodbye.

I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support. Thank you for reading my words and sharing your own. I’ll always be grateful.
