Why Umbrella Hearts?

The umbrella is used to protect us.​​

  • You can become that umbrella for our children. 

  • Abuse is a crime, don't ignore it and don't stay silent if you know it is happening.

  • It takes a community to raise a child, YOU are part of the community, will you play your part?

  • No person or child deserves to live in fear or being abused.

  • You might be only one person but together we are many, we are a army for the protection of our children.

Abuse takes many forms,

  • it is not just child trafficking

  • it is not just child pornography exploitation

  • it is not just children forced onto the street to beg

  • it is not just children going without food or clothing

  • it is not just children suffering intentionally inflicted hurt, broken bones, bruises, burns and poison ingestion

This list can go on and on however we are sure you understand this so we ask will you step up?

Your task should you choose to accept it

  • Stand With Us

  •  Demand abuse in all its forms is driven out of our society and our community

  • Become a true 'community member' and stand up for our children's right to safety

  • Join with us and commit to not remaining silent to known abuse occurring

  • Step up and protect all children

  • Have the hard conversations

  • Be the child's umbrella {their shield}

  • Let it be known 'it is NOT OK to hurt children' 

  • Join this movement to abolish all forms of abuse from within Australia and the World, one community, one suburb, one street, one block at a time

  • Wear the Umbrella Ribbon with pride

Abuse is often a silent and hidden crime in our community.

It continues because 'we' choose not to see it because we don't want to get involved.

We fail to see that we are as involved as those living with and suffering abuse now.


As we are all a product of our upbringing and life experiences these suffering people and children will carry their experiences into their future and ours.


Many will grow with unresolved issues and have disdain for society.


Join with us and start the push back and get these abusive criminals out of our society.

  • Become that umbrella

  • Make it known you will not stay silent

  • Make a decision that abuse of any kind does not have a place in your community

  • Be just one person who will stand up and demand protection for our vulnerable children

  • One becomes many, join others to become a wave of people that will overwhelm the criminal abusers

  • Don't be afraid to report these criminals they deserve to be reported and dealt with by society's standards

  • Take up your umbrella and make a stand, let others know you will no longer stay silent

Lets defeat abuse,

"it's not OK to abuse a child

every day it's not OK"
