33 Day Challenge – Day 2 and 3 Recap

Day 2

Tonight while we watched Kardashians, Mum had a glass of wine. She got up at one point to go into the kitchen and I quickly leaned over and smelled it. It didn’t even smell good. I don’t even miss it.

Day 3

We had a large donation from David and Mick at Melbourne Interiors last night. Their generosity reminded me of our cause ‘Violence Against women’ and I thought I would touch on it again.

A few months ago when we started thinking about abstaining to raise money for White Ribbon, the death count stood at 33 lives. I am sad to read on ‘Counting Dead Women’ that the count stands at 43 today.

Destroy The Joint’s (DTJ) Counting Dead Women campaign was launched last year to remember women who have lost their lives due to domestic or family violence. Please read these names and remember the count is not just numbers, these were lives.
