How it all Began…

Support The Girls Australia began when the universe connected two people, providing a catalyst for an incredible Journey…

In January 2016, Jane Holmes- the CEO and Founder of Support The Girls Australia- had a chance encounter with a 13 year old girl in a Gold Coast shopping mall. The young girl looked dishevelled and malnourished and she asked Jane if she had any menstrual hygiene products that she could spare. Jane asked her if she just required one or two pads and she said no she needed a packet as she was homeless. This was alarming to Jane as the young girl came across as very young and naïve After providing the young girl with menstrual hygiene products, Jane insisted on buying her lunch.
During the course of lunch, Jane listened to the girl’s story and discovered that she had run away from home where she was being sexually abused by her step-father. The 13-year-old girl told Jane that the streets were a safer place for her than home.
Upon further probing, the young girl showed Jane where she lived. This is where Jane met “Lily”- an elderly and weather-beaten lady who was full of character. However, behind this gregarious and larger than life woman, was a very sad physical situation. Upon noticing “Lily’s” large bust size, Jane inquired as to why she wasn’t wearing a bra. “Lily” informed Jane that she had not owned a bra for four years and proceeded to show her the severely infected gangrenous tissue under her breast. This was a result of chafing caused by skin on skin and heat.
Despite having worked as a Crisis Counsellor with the New Zealand Police , Jane was still horrified and saddened by the dire situation in which this girl and woman were living. This was when Jane decided to change the entire course of her life.

We’re always on the road somewhere - van packed to the brim with bras, underwear and sanitary products. She’s one of the most important members of our crew. The mobile hope mobile ✨ Did you know that we sometimes bring hundreds of bras to our gifting events? We carefully pack each box depending on the information we receive on our clients … however many women have never had a fitting before and consequently they aren’t sure of their size. That means we pack em all! We work to make sure everyone goes home feeling confident, hopeful and ready to make waves in their lives. Our volunteers do an incredible job of moving all of your wonderful donations from warehouse, to events and then back to the warehouse again so that no woman is left behind 💫 ...

✨INTERNATIONAL NURSES DAY✨
This is our day to give a huge shout out to all the nurses in our community who have been saving and changing lives everyday! In Australia our nursing workforce is 89% female - and the feminisation of this industry has meant largely low wages, overwhelming expectations and underwhelming resourcing. Especially during this time, where the risk is greater and the hours are longer. Yet everyday they get up and continue to be the silent heroes behind the masks. Help us say thanks today 👏💫
