Get in some retail therapy and change the world at the same time with a special shopping event in Canberra.

Rebel Muse Sends Hope is a night of shopping, live music and food and drink that will see $5 from every item sold at Rebel Muse donated to Send Hope Not Flowers, providing safe birthing to women in the developing world.

Send Hope Not Flowers aims to help mothers survive childbirth in the developing world. They accomplish this in numerous ways, such as funding doctors and midwives to train local health workforces, purchasing obstetric equipment and basic supplies, delivering baby packs and helping mothers access supervised deliveries.

More than just shopping, the special event on Lonsdale Street will also feature a grazing table, raffle prizes and a talk from Send Hope’s own Emma MacDonald.

Rebel Muse Sends Hope is on Thursday 5 April from 6pm to 9pm.
