MOTHERLOSS AWARENESS WEEK
MAY 2 – 8

A LOSS THAT
LASTS A LIFETIME.

For many of the 3.7 million daughters in Australia who've lost their mums, Mother's Day can be a time of renewed sadness and grief, no matter how long it’s been. So, in the lead up to and culminating on Mother's Day we are raising awareness of our organisation and offering hope to motherless daughters across Australia.

Motherloss Awareness week 2021 honours that connection.

To raise awareness of the under acknowledged impact of motherloss, and to educate the community of the services available to motherless daughters, we’re sharing a symbol of hope in the lead up to Mother’s Day.

Of the 12m women in australia,
3,738,000
have lost theIr mothers
1,200,000+
women experienced mother loss before the age of 44.

GET INVOLVED

We invite you to Draw Her Wings - a symbol of remembrance and hope, and a celebration our unique community. Join us in drawing her wings to raise awareness about motherloss, and our community of motherless daughters supporting each other through life’s journey without mum.

Sketch using any medium, on any surface, a set of angel wings, and share it to social media telling your story as a Motherless Daughter, as someone who is connected to motherloss, or simply to show your support for a great cause.

Draw Her Wings - in the air, on your hand or on your arm, in the sand or in your notebook. Anywhere! It’s a symbol of remembrance and hope, and a celebration of our proud community of motherless daughters lifting each other up.
