To my Dearest Sisters and fellow Goddesses
My Christmas message is of a ‘not so nice’ personal experience but with a positive
When I was eight years old I was molested by a very close family member. This led me into a world where I was faced to make one of two choices.
One of those choices was to be a victim and allow that horrific experience to bring me down and lead me into a life of drugs, abuse, emotional issues and hatred.
The second choice was to accept, grow, heal, rise above the ‘story’ and be strong. Most of all to choose to not allow that story to win, get me down or ruin my life.
When my husband and I united, we both felt strongly about giving some of our money to an Australian charity and we chose Bravehearts. Braveheart’s mission is to educate to prevent child sexual assault for Australian children. Money goes towards educators going around to schools, and also counselling and support for children who have been abused and support for adults whom have ‘historical cases’ and may need counselling and support.
It gives me so much happiness and gratitude that our money actually helps these people,
and just maybe one child has been taught to know the warning signs and say ‘NO’ or tell their parent/carer.
If you have ever felt as though you would like to donate to a charity, Bravehearts would be an excellent choice.
Sexual abuse has a massive negative impact on our society and can tare’s good family’s apart.
This Christmas and for the new year please be a part of the revolution to prevent and stop sexual abuse.

I send out a healing message of love, light and hope to all sexual assault victims and survivors.
And I would like to wish you all a beautiful Christmas and an exciting, happy and safe new year.
Love and many blessings Annie
