Blogger Constance Hall will be ‘Queen’ of Byron
ON SATURDAY, Australia's most influential mum blogger Constance Hall will come face-to-face with the incredible Lennox Head mother and her team who have devoted their lives to ensuring children as young as two are protected from violent sexual predators.
The outspoken mummy blogger will be in leaving her four kids with family for the first time, and heading for Byron Bay with the hubby to meet the women behind Rafiki Mwema, the charity that she helped raise $200,000 for in just over 24 hours.
She's super-stoked about it:
Constance Hall, who has more than 750,000 Facebook fans, threw her support behind the Lennox Head based charity in March this year, asking her fellow 'Queens' to help raise money to buy land and build a safe haven for very young girls who have been sexually abused in Kenya.
Tickets for the charity event are sold out but the Lennox Head mums have revealed the focus on Contance's appearance will be to announce her support for 'King's Castle' a safe house for abused street boys in addition to her 'Queen's Castle' for sexually exploited young girls. For every copy of her soon-to-be-released book Like A Queen Constance will donate $1 to fund King's Castle.
Rafiki Mwema Australia's chief executive and Lennox Head local Sarah Rosborg says once Constance shared the gofundme details on her page more than $150,000 was raised in 24 hours - this is believed to be the fastest growing Go Fund Me campaign in Australia's history.
We happened to capture Sarah's reaction the moment the charity hit its initial goal of $75,000.
Also in attendance will be Instagram superstars Celeste Barber and Fat Mum Slim, who have both used their incredible social media influence to support Rafiki Mwema. Anne Marie Tipper, the UK-based founder of Rafiki's parent charity Play Kenya, has also flown out to attend the event that is being hosted by the prestigious The Byron at Bryon Resort & Spa.
