Brisbane Lady Mayoress Nina Schrinner, "Right now, there are more than 700 women over the age of 55 in Brisbane who don't have a safe and secure place to sleep at night, and sadly this number is expected to more than double by 2036." She continued, "These could be our mothers, aunts, sisters, and daughters, and we have a duty to help them. A car is not a home, but this is a reality for too many women."

 

White Label Noba, the iconic fashion label known for its celebration of women of all ages and sizes, is DONATING all SALES from white tracksuits sold between 6pm this Thursday and 6am this Friday to 'The Forgotten Women’. 

 

Tracey Watkins, said, "There's a fine line between being at the top and being at the bottom – it could happen to any one of us." By donating the sales from the sale of white tracksuits, White Label Noba is taking a proactive step toward helping these women regain their footing and find safe, secure housing.

 

Carla Haddan, Lead agent and Partner at Place Estate Agents’ One Group, together with her colleagues have a target to raise $1million over the next five years to donate to The Forgotten Women charity, standing by women and the community in this important cause. “Place’s mission is to help clients find “their happy place” and everyone deserves that; supporting this charity is like extending that mission to provide a meaningful home and a fresh start for homeless women,” Carla said.

 

Teresa Reed, the founder of 'The Forgotten Women,' stated, "If we reach our goal of raising $250,000 in this year's 'Live Like Her Challenge,' it will help on our mission to put a roof over the head of every homeless woman over 55."
