Team The Ripple Effect

Welcome to our Team Ripple Effect fundraising page!

Kevin Whitley and Margaret Melkie share a unique bond. Kevin is a survivor of child sexual abuse at the hands of a convicted serial paedophile, decades before Margaret was even born. Margaret is the neice of a convicted serial paedophile. Together Kevin and Margaret have formed Team Ripple Effect.  Listen to how this unique bond was formed and what was the beginning of the Ripple Effect...

Channel Ten reporter Dan Sutton ran the story of our journey together "Unlikely Team Turns Evil Into Good" ...

The Ripple Effect Team is all about raising awareness of child sexual assault and providing encouragement, hope and support for all of the '1in5' victims living with their deep dark secret in our society.

The take-away from this event is that the smallest of steps can create ripples that form a Tsunami of change. Please join Margaret and I in our journey to reach our fundrasing goal by clicking the Make A Donation link to sponsor our team or register and join our team and help us in raising much needed funds for Bravehearts!
