Tuesday, August 17th, 2010 - Mrs Australia
You’ve heard of Miss Australia, but did you know there is a MRS?

On 20 August, 2010 in Melbourne, Australia, the worlds of charity, achievement and catwalk bling come together at Mrs. Australia 2010. By the end of the evening, one lucky lady will be crowned the new Mrs. Australia (the most beautiful married ‘Mrs’ in the country) and become the National Spokesperson for the WIN Foundation and Project Dovetail.

From teachers and authors, to models and mumpreneurs, 28 finalists were selected from over 500 applicants around Australia and will represent Australia at the international event in Cypress, Greece if crowned at the national competition next week.

In addition to her crown, Mrs Australia more importantly serves as the national spokesperson for the WIN (Women in Need) Foundation, an outreach for abuse recovery for women faced with domestic violence and Project Dovetail, an organisation for disadvantaged children.

“Our goal at Mrs. Australia is to forward women’s needs and education, and to draw a spotlight on domestic violence in Australia,” says reigning Mrs Australia 2009, Kylie Tsiafogiannis. “It’s shocking that sexual violence affects one in five Australian women, and that physical violence affects one in three.”

More Information about the Mrs Australia Event:
The bevy of National Finalists has worked hard throughout the year running charity events to raise funds and awareness for the Mrs Australia charities including ‘Celebrating Women’ Morning Teas, market stalls, and Kids Day Out parties for local disadvantaged kids.

As well as the top crown, a ‘Mrs Philanthropy’ title will be awarded to the National Finalist who has contributed most to their community, and they too get a shot at competing at the international competition.

The Mrs Globe pageant is now run in over 40 countries, and the WIN Foundation operates in seven locations including: USA, Greece, New Zealand, Pakistan, Bahamas, South Africa and now Australia.

The WIN Foundation is an international not-for-profit charity that runs recovery programs for women who have experienced domestic abuse, and a prevention program 'Raise Your Standards' for young women.

“Mrs Australia is more than a traditional beauty pageant,” says Kylie, “it is a creative and quality event that offers the enjoyment of competition, networking and personal growth for women who deserve acknowledgement for their contribution to their families, career, and community.”

Project Dovetail


What makes Project Dovetail different, is that we do not send or give money to any of the orphanages or organisations we work with, rather plan activities and events, organise services or give items directly to the children, to ensure that everything goes directly to the children.

A lot of these children have been abandoned at birth or come from families who can no longer look after them, and often long for one-on-one attention and things to call their own.

Our aim is to let these children know that they are special and important, and that there are people who care about them. We want the children to be proud of who they are and to be able to look into a future and see their dreams and great possibilities.

To do this will give them access to a social support network as well as helping them with educational supplies and guidance.
