Upon reflection of almost two years of my volunteer work with Support The Girls Australia, I’d like to say that I continue to be inspired by the amazing women that we have the privilege to work with, and the wonderful camaraderie and relentless commitment to the ethos of our charity by yourself, and our fellow volunteers.
The stories that our women openly share, the trust they place in us as bra fitters, and the humility and appreciation shown when receiving our support is truly humbling. Many of the women we support entrust us with their stories of social, emotional, physical and economic abuse and/or disadvantage. I feel so much compassion and respect for their trust and resilience shown.
To witness the smiles on their faces, and hear their expressed words of gratitude at our events, is truly priceless. As a volunteer, not only do I get to meet and contribute in a small way to improving the lives of the remarkable women we serve, I also benefit greatly from the friendships, fun and connection shared with a wonderful group of like minded volunteers working with STGA.
