The Sky Is The Limit
Blue Knot Day 29th October
Blue Knot Foundation's national awareness day held on the last Monday in October, invites all Australians to unite in support of the 5 million Australian adult survivors of childhood trauma and abuse.
Everyone can help. In the past some people have raised awareness through dyeing their hair blue while others have organised blue lights to illuminate bridges, buildings and to celebrate Blue Knot’s 21st birthday in 2016, the Sydney Opera House was floodlit blue… what ideas might be possible this year?
We’d love to hear from you.
The tangled knot in the Blue Knot Foundation logo symbolises the complexity of childhood trauma, with blue representing the colour of the sky; the clear blue sky providing the space for new possibilities.
What possibilities might there be to raise awareness in your community?
Many Breaking Free readers have hosted events locally such as workplace morning teas or community gatherings. To see highlights from recent years please visit our website. If you would like to raise awareness, fundraise, promote Blue Knot Day on social media, organize a community event such as a workplace morning tea, community BBQ, trivia night, fun run teams, faith based events, please let us know
Blue Knot Day pins and bracelets offer a simple and effective way to raise awareness and can also be great conversation starters. These are now available for sale online ($20 for pack of 5 pins or $25 for a pack of 5 bracelets).
Blue Knot Day will be held on Monday October 29th, with activities and events taking place across Australia, throughout the week until Sunday 4th November, 2018
