What is Light It Orange?
We want to shine some light onto the dark subject of domestic abuse - so we’ve come up with a special way to do just that. We call it Light It Orange! It’s our special day to raise awareness and much needed funds to help victims of domestic abuse to get safe and stay safe.
Domestic abuse is not an easy subject, especially because our statistics here in NZ are shocking. Did you know that the NZ Police answer a domestic abuse callout every 5 minutes? Or that 1 child is killed every 6 weeks by a family member? Or even that 1 in 3 Kiwi women will experience physical or sexual abuse by a partner in their lifetime.It’s awful to know that we have such a huge problem with domestic abuse in our beautiful country.
The good news is that now you can do something that will actually help victims to get free from abuse. You can even score yourself some fabulous prizes along the way!
