Domestic Violence Awareness Month: Thanks To All Who Got Involved

This May the International Towers community came together with our friends at Two Good Co. to shine a light on domestic and family violence. Thank you.

This May, our community came together with Two Good Co. to shine a light on domestic and family violence.
As part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, you participated in The XO Project – a campaign designed to give back to those who need it most. Every time you came along to an event, recruited a colleague onto the Partner Portal, or interacted with our content, we donated gourmet meals for women's refuge shelters via Two Good's Work Work domestic violence support program.

And you well and truly showed up. We're delighted to announce that across the Lendlease Office Portfolio, our community helped us donate more than 7,000 gourmet meals to domestic violence survivors in shelter accommodation.

These meals are cooked by women in Two Good’s Work Work program, which helps give survivors of family violence a career path, and a brighter future. Thanks to you, these delicious meals are enjoyed by people fleeing domestic violence.

We were blown away by the personal responses you had to our activities and content. Some of you approached us with your own stories, and wanted to know what more you can do to help. We received beautiful feedback on the helpful tips from the Walk The Talk program, with many of you expressing that you would want to be able to help your colleagues if they were ever in need.

We are so proud and grateful to have been on this journey with you, and hope that you learned something about the huge issue that is domestic violence in Australia. We hope that even once the last flowers have been removed from the lobby, you’ll continue to bring attention, awareness, and action to domestic violence.
