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.
