Meet Liam Robinson, from Belmon P.S. in Vic. He and his classmates have collected a whopping 21,000 five cent coins for our Big Heart Project! That's over $1100! I just can't believe it. Thank you to Tash and the entire community in Belmont.
And I can finally announce that we have settled on a time and place. Australia's biggest love heart will be built on May 10th, in Canberra, at the Lyneham Netball courts, close to home so I can be there!
You might not believe this, but so far our heart is already bursting at $550,000! Which sort of does pose the question...could this become a million dollar heart? I'm thrilled that Carrie is keen to get The Project on board, and if that happens, who knows!?!?!? Can't help dreaming!
A few people sent me the Sydney Boys High School video mentioned in this letter and I had zero interest in sharing it for all the reasons listed here. I'm much more interested in bringing attention to the words here from prefects at Sydney Girls School. They are 100% correct when they highlight that men who speak about feminism are praised and platformed in mainstream places while women who discuss the same things from a place of experience are derided and, in many cases, subjected to vicious abuse - and often from the same circles these boys come from.
It's great that schoolboys want to highlight how important feminism is, but they do not deserve to be celebrated for it or rewarded. When their female peers speak out on these issues, their male peers are just as likely to bombard them with retrosexism about getting back in the kitchen, asking for the man in charge, talking about how inequality is a myth and/or threatening them with violence.
To the young women of Sydney Girls High School - good on you. This letter is superb. If these schoolboys are truly your allies, they'll read it, listen and learn.

So, yesterday's procedure was very, well, procedural. Not the happiest experience of my lifetime, that's for sure. Is there any better way to get over it, and get on with it, than a meeting last night with our fabulous five cent hero vollies to plan our big heart for May 10? And, when things are tough and you really need a friend, I am lucky to have the love and support of my family, this village, Augie (our very big and clumsy, but very loving puppy) and some great friends, new and old. Thank you for making me feel safe and loved in one of my darker hours. Love my family, love this village, love the love. #nowisawesome XXConnie

He was then hit and kicked when he tried to stand up. He was unable to see his attackers but believes there were two men involved.
