Thank you for expressing interest in the 2017 Apron Project to benefit the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women's Shelter. This year we are spreading our wings and we will also be raising awareness and funds for three additional shelters under the Women's Community Shelters umbrella PLUS we are heading to Wisconsin USA to co-host withOh Hello Happiness, a special benefit for Bridgeway & Beyond.
In the last two years over 80 artists have presented over 100 aprons and raised almost AUD20,000 for the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women's Shelter. Importantly they also raised awareness of the growing epidemic of Domestic Violence.
In Australia there have been 173 deaths by domestic violence since we started this project.
The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.
HOPE - Hope is looking to the future with trust and faith. It is optimism in the face of adversity. Hope gives us the courage to keep moving forward. It can be elusive when we have suffered often, yet it is the light that can redeem our dreams. With hope, we know we are not alone. There is always help when we are willing to ask. With hope, we find the confidence to try and try again.
Artists donating an Apron to the 2017 Apron Project are asked to submit:
Details and images will be used on our website, the HKWS Facebook page and promotions of the project.
Please wash and iron your apron before working on it.
