The Australian surfer is renowned for her fearlessness in taking on the world’s biggest waves – bravery that has cemented her spot in the top 10 rankings of the World Surf League. So it’s not surprising to hear that Laura has linked up with accessories brand MIMCO for its annual #BePartOfTheChange campaign with Our Watch – the organisation valiantly tasked with tackling this generation’s biggest challenge: putting an end to violence against Australian women and their children.
The prevalence of domestic violence in Australia is well-known but still shocking, with on average, at least one woman a week killed at the hands of a partner or an ex. To turn these figures around, MIMCO has joined forces with Our Watch to create a capsule collection of two special pieces – the Our Watch Timepiece and the Our Watch Charm. One hundred per cent of profits from their sale will go directly back to Our Watch. marie claire is again proud to support this great campaign, which raised more than $400,000 in its inaugural year. Join us to be part of the change.
