Good afternoon,

In 2021, the Australian Catholic University assisted one of our community partners, Impact for Women, an organisation dedicated to assisting women and children fleeing extreme violence at home, by dressing around 250 rag-dolls that were kindly donated to Impact. We still have another 200 dolls that require outfits, and we would like to invite your organisation to participate.

Please visit our website for further information:  https://www.acu.edu.au/about-acu/community-engagement/community-giving/dress-a-doll-for-impact      

A doll auction will be held in late September 2022 with some of the competition entries being available for purchase. Last year we raised $2,100 from the sale of 36 dolls that went directly to Impact for Women.

This initiative is being coordinated by the ACU Research Impact Unit with the support of the ACU Community Engagement Time Release policy.

We would be very grateful if you could share this initiative among your social networks to help spread the word as much as possible. Thank you for your support of this initiative. 😊

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Kind regards
