Supporter Spotlight - Meet Jodie

By WAGEC

Published on May 12, 2020

Meet our WAGEC's wonderful supporter Jodie!

Introduce yourself! Who are you and how did you hear about WAGEC?

My name is Jodie, I run a community movement, Little Care Packs, which educates and enables kids to give back in their communities by fundraising, sourcing, packing and distributing basic hygiene items to people who need them.

I started following WAGEC on social media after searching for Women’s services we could support in our area.

What does community mean to you?

I have found a sense of community is many places over the years and in whatever form whether that mothers’ group, workplaces, schools, friends and families. It has always meant support + belonging.

What strengths did you bring to the WAGEC community? How did you offer support?

I bring a passion for gender equality, coaching experience and an awesome Little Care Packs community.  I support WAGEC in a number of ways, firstly as a volunteer mentor on the ACCESS Program and secondly by rounding up our Little Care Packs community to fundraise for WAGEC. Our ‘Dance4Difference’ on line dance party recently raised over $3K.

What is something you are grateful for amidst these uncertain times?

I have been grateful for the little things…  my health, beautiful weather and kids that are taking it all in their stride.
