Buckets of Love

Buckets of Love
Members of Quota International Region 9 fill Buckets of Love with goods.

One in three women has experienced physical or sexual abuse in her lifetime according to UN Women. In most cases the abuser is an intimate partner-someone who has earned the victim’s trust. The Combined Women’s Refuge Group (CWRG) in Queensland, Australia has spent the last 30 years advocating for women and children victims of domestic violence, and for Convention 2016 Quota International will partner with CWRG to create Buckets of Love. Following in the footsteps of Quotarians in Region 9, Buckets of Love will be filled with lightweight pajamas, books, games, diaries, and gift cards to help empower the abused women and children of Queensland.

For many years International Convention has been a platform for Quotarians to spread generosity throughout communities around the world through Service-on-Site projects. Past projects include Quota Cares Teddy Bears donations to police officers to give to children in need in Cincinnati; funds to support the Hawaii State Women’s Correctional Center’s life rehabilitation program; bags of clothing and toiletries for foster children and their foster families in Vancouver; and helping women gain and retain employment with Career Closet.
