A rebel with a cause, Amy Clarke is on a mission to make a difference this Christmas and is calling on the Northern Beaches community for help to create Pamper Hampers for women escaping domestic violence.

You may recognise Amy Clarke as the face behind the bright, bold and empowering apparel brand, Confetti Rebels. Or you might recognise her name from the Northern Beaches Living Facebook Group where she often does a call out for volunteers for feeding the homeless or helping adolescents in crisis.

As the holiday season approaches, Amy is again organising ‘Pamper Hampers’ for women escaping domestic violence at the Northern Beaches Women’s shelter – and she needs the community’s help.

Amy explains, “Women that come to these shelters usually flee turbulent situations with nothing but their phone and wallet, and never know how long they are going to be in the situation they are in. By providing them with something a little more than just the ‘staples’ offered when they first arrive, I hope to give them some small joyful thing this Christmas to take their mind off what they are going through, even if it’s just for a moment.”

She continues, “I chose the Northern Beaches Women’s Shelter because I find our local community is so full of kindness and selflessness, they want to help, but just don’t know how. With me being the organiser, packer and deliverer it takes a weight off those who want to give and allows more people the opportunity to donate.”

Those wanting to contribute to Amy’s Christmas pamper hampers can donate anything that “screams pampering” including face masks, chocolate bars, body products, skincare, headbands, tea, eye masks and candles. Amy will then pack these into Confetti Rebels designed Santa sacks that say, “Here’s to strong women”.

Donations can be dropped off at Amy’s residence in Elanora Heights (just email her for the location), and if you need assistance with pickup, she’s able to help between Dee Why and Avalon. The cutoff date for donations is Friday, December 1.

“I would like to think if I was in this position that someone would help me and my family out,” she reflects. “I live a very privileged life and I understand I cannot ‘save the world’ however, starting local and helping local gives me gratitude and also allows me to spread the awareness of shelters like this working overdrive. I like to use my following for good, and spread kindness that way.”

Since starting Confetti Rebels, Clarke has donated thousands of dollars to charities including Headspace, Beyond Blue, National Breast Counter Foundation, Black Rainbow and the 2019 bushfire crisis. She selects these worthy charities based on the related theme of her t-shirts and donates a percentage of her sales accordingly.
