Naked For Change charity calendar is helping to raise funds for domestic violence victims. The calendar features our very own HDS trainer, Kim Stenhouse of Hunter Valley Bouquets.
NAKED FOR CHANGE STORY
The project was created and fuelled by Ashleigh Palmowski of The Naked Florist, and features 12 nude florists, seven of them based right here in the Hunter.
Palmowski put the call out to florists to collaborate in a cheeky yet tasteful nude photoshoot with the aims of raising funds and support for women and families affected by domestic violence.
Each florist was able to chose their photographer, creative team and a scene. This creative freedom produced 12 unique looks as each participant allowed their own personality or floristry style come alive and shine.
The result of 44 creatives working together is the liberating Naked for Change calendar.
In an interview with the Newcastle Herald, Palmowski shared:
“Our biggest aim is to raise money and awareness for Got Your Back Sista, although we are also promoting and encouraging conversation.”
HELPING THOSE IS NEED
Got Your Back Sista is a local Hunter charity, which supports women and families affected by domestic violence. Their vision is to see women and their children happy, thriving and living independently after escaping the trauma of domestic violence.
As such, Got Your Back Sista offers benevolent relief and support to women and children escaping domestic violence and are at risk of living below the poverty line. GYBS give a hand up for them to begin again and live independently.
The Naked for Change calendar costs $20 with all proceeds going towards Got Your Back Sista.
The calendar is available at Flower HQ, Newy Burger Co, Kinfolk Barbers, Floweresque, Piccottee Floral, Blooms On Darby, Newcastle Flower Markets, Worn Out Wares, Pearsons Darlinghurst, IF The Florist, Caves Coastal Bar and Bungalows and The CoWork Space Cessnock.
