Inspirational woman of the Month: Melody Towns
Inspired, empowered and motivated - just three words that came to mind after hearing the story of our woman of the month, Melody Towns. The Be Hers’ founder's story begins with Melody attending a function in 2010 which saw A21 charity founder Christine Caine speak about the realities of human trafficking. To say Melody’s eyes were opened is an understatement.
“I heard story after story about little girls being sold into slavery and I was sitting with my own little girl on my lap and $500 shopping money in my pocket — I decided I needed to do something,” she recounts. It was after this life changing event that Melody decided to set up Be Hers, an NFP organisation that helps raise money for victims of trafficking and educates people about the realities of slavery in the modern world.
It all began with a small high tea with her closest girlfriends in a bid to raise awareness about the cause. With a less-than-perfect fashion show for entertainment, it was the topic of conversation that truly struck a chord with those present. Almost 20 years on, Be Hers is holding its’ biggest event yet with close to 1000 inspired females confirmed to attend Be Her Freedom in Hobart. For our Tassie girls, it’s not too late to get your ticket.
Every year since Be Hers was founded, the not-for-profit has grown twice over. With a team of ladies behind her, including 300+ volunteers AU wide that are truly as inspiring as she is, the sky's the limit for the not-for-profit organisation. Want
A message from the Be Hers team:
Needless to say, we couldn’t be prouder to support this amazing cause. $5 from every order over $300 at Esther & Co. is donated to Be Hers. Are you ready to shop for change?!
