The 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children Campaign is a United Nations campaign which takes place annually from 25 November (International Day of No Violence against Women) to 10 December (International Human Rights Day).
Here at JFF, we are continuously working to stand against GBV and this year’s 16 Days campaign is all about supporting victims through our Handbag Project. For us to do this and make a BIG positive impact, we will be nominating local businesses on social media to collect and pack just #16handbags over the 16-day period.
Here is exactly how our #16Handbags Challenge will work:
1. Company X will be nominated by JFF on Social Media to start an internal handbag collection within their organisation to see how many rape comport bags they can collect within the 16 Day period. We are aiming for just 16 bags per company, but this number is of course not limited and is up to the team!
2. If accepted, company X will post the above “Challenge Accepted” image, tag @jesfoord and then challenge company Y to do the same.
3. Company Y will then challenge company Z to follow suit, and so on.
Can you imagine the impact it would make if every company collected just 16 rape comfort bags each?! If you and your company would like to get involved, simply save the image in this mailer, post it on social media to confirm you have accepted the challenge and then nominate a business of your choice.
We will be doing our final collection and pack on the last day of 16 Days of Activism – the 10th of December, and all collections can be dropped off directly at our Kloof offices. To find out more about what we pack into each bag, simply click here. If you require any further information on this campaign, please do not hesitate to get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good luck friends and we hope you will stand with us during this very important time.
