Thank you for taking the time to reach out for women. Below you will find an email that you can send out to your friends, family and colleagues. You can also send your own personalised message, invite someone to give over a cup of tea or phone a friend and invite them to join the Challenge.
Together we can make a significant difference to women and girls across the world and keep moving towards a future that sees an end to unacceptable violence. When we reach out to women, we can also reach entire communities and influence change for the next generation.
I joined UN Women as a regular supporter because I believe that by working together, we can reach women all over the globe and make a significant difference to their lives. We can put an end to unacceptable violence and accelerate gender equality. Will you join me as a monthly supporter to create a brighter future for women and girls?
I am inviting you to give $25 a month, just 80c a day to support women who are experiencing horrific violence right now.
The reality is, 1 in 3 women and girls will be beaten, raped, abused or mutilated in their lifetimes. In the Pacific, the numbers are even worse. Over 60 per cent of women in the Western Pacific have experienced gender-based violence.
Your $25 monthly donation can help increase vital services for women including safe shelter, counselling, telephone hotlines, justice through family violence laws and training programs for police officers and health workers. These services can help women escape violence and rebuild their lives.
When we reach out to women, we can also reach entire communities and influence change for the next generation.

Thank you in advance for joining me to reach and empower women and girls.
