Bravehearts’ White Balloon Day 2020
Bravehearts’ White Balloon Day is Australia’s largest and longest-running campaign dedicated to preventing child sexual assault and exploitation.
Held annually during National Child Protection Week, White Balloon Day unites communities to make a commitment to protecting kids.
The White Balloon was adopted by Bravehearts as symbolic of the issue of child sexual assault following a public demonstration in Belgium in 1996.
Bravehearts’ first official White Balloon Day was held in 1997. After more than two decades, the white balloon is now a symbol of hope for survivors of child sexual assault and encourages them to break the silence by speaking out. In turn, the humble white balloon works to protect today’s children against sexual assault and exploitation.
