What is Light It Orange?
We want to shine some light onto the dark subject of family violence - so we’ve come up with a special way to do just that. We call it Light It Orange! It’s our special week to raise awareness and much needed funds to help victims of family violence to get safe and stay safe.
Family violence is not an easy subject, especially because our statistics here in NZ are shocking. Did you know that the NZ Police answer a family violence callout every 5 minutes? Or that 1 child is killed every 5 1/2 weeks by a family member? Or even that 1 in 3 Kiwi women will be physically or sexually abused by a partner in their lifetime? It’s awful to know that we have such a huge problem with family violence in our beautiful country.
The good news is that now you can do something that will actually help victims to get free from violence and abuse. So come on and join us to Light It Orange!
