Reece Mastin – latest Australian White Ribbon Ambassador
April 30, 2015
Reece Mastin (Australian Musician and 2011 winner of the X Factor in Australia) is now an Australian White Ribbon Ambassador. “I’m extremely proud to be a White Ribbon Ambassador in Australia, this is a cause I feel very strongly about. Violence against women is never acceptable and it horrifies me that one woman a week is killed by a current or former partner. I have 3 beautiful sisters and a lot of amazing women in my life and I want to help do whatever I can to raise awareness around this massive issue in the community. I want people to know that I will not be silent and I call on others, young and old, to speak out against domestic violence.” Reece says.
Rob McCann, White Ribbon Campaign Manager New Zealand is delighted that Reece has been willing to spread the White Ribbon message while he is in New Zealand. “We hope that the action’s of Reece will inspire more young New Zealanders to make good choices and reject violence. Violence is not normal behaviour and his new video illustrates some of the shocking effects violence has on families.” Reece Mastin came to fame when he won the 2011 series of The X Factor in Australia. His magnetic stage presence and killer vocals established him as a genuine superstar with a legion of dedicated, loyal fans, affectionately known as Lil’ Rockers. Reece has since released two Gold selling number one albums and two consecutive chart-topping singles.
