Friends of the North. I need your help!
Melbourne Period Project has some AMAZING NEWS. Out of thousands of applications submitted to the Victorian Government's 'Pick My Project' Community grants initiative, ours was chosen as a finalist.
Our project idea is to start an Op Shop that is also a safe place for women to come and talk to someone about how to leave a violent or abusive relationship...‘before’ it's too late.
We want to get women out before they become another tragic family violence statistic. The Op Shop will have information, numbers, access to counselling and working groups to give women the information needed to get them to safety.
But we’re going to need your help to get it started because it will rely on getting the most votes to win the $66k funding.
How to vote for us:
1. Go to www.pickmyproject.vic.gov.au
2. Enter your postcode (if you live within 5km of Carlton North)

Please share, share, share! And Vote, vote, vote!
