“I support Embrave because I know that my gifts are making a difference for survivors of violence in my own community. It’s important to me to show my children what I’m doing to make our community a better place, because I believe that giving reinforces values – like kindness – that I want to instill in my children.

Sarah-Jayne, Changemaker

“These groups are greatly needed. Thanks so much for watering our roots and helping us grow.”
