My sister nominated me for a box after I lost my job because of covid lockdown again. Ann dropped off a beautiful package filled with food and nice pamper type of things and she also gave me a $100 Visa card to help me afford my shopping. Safe to say that I balled my eyes out like a baby. This helped me a lot Ann so thank you. Thank you for helping me and by the looks of it you help A LOT of people. I messaged Ann on the bent but not breaking Facebook page to thank her and she was so lovely and kind. She told me that if I need any extra support to just message her and she was just really really nice and caring.
Highly recommend!

I ordered a I am enough bangle and anxiety is a liar shirt and both are equally as amazing as the other but it’s the meaning behind them that truly makes me feel special. A great ice breaker and conversation starter too which thing is part of Ann’s great plan. Around 2 weeks after I ordered my bangle and shirt Ann emailed me to tell me what my order provided for people in need along with photos and a very special thank you and I think it is a beautiful thing that Ann is doing.
I Highly recommend bent but not breaking. It is a community that is run by a woman who is healing the world while also healing herself as she battles her health.

Just wanted to send a special thanks to Ann who has been a godsend to those in the community. I recently nominated someone, who I felt could use a pick me up after being thrown a few bad turns. Ann instantly came to the rescue, dropping round a gift hamper to brighten her day. Ann posts often about her struggles and real life issues, connecting with those around her. She is a real person, with real issues of her own, yet she offers support and guidance to those less fortunate. When things seem to go wrong for others and life kicks them to the curb, you will see Ann selflessly driving around and dropping around food and support no matter the day or night. I too have been a recipient of Ann’s generosity. As an educator I was gifted a pack from Ann. It gave me the strength and positivity I needed to keep doing what I do, and knowing that I made a difference to someone else, is a true gift in itself. Too often in life we forget to thank those around us, so on this occasion I need to ensure that Ann is thanked for the countless hours and tears she sheds while supporting others.
Keep up the great work Ann.

My son has been bullied just like Anns son once was. It’s been shit for our family. My wife was reading about Ann on a parenting website and she checked out this website and then directly messaged Ann for advice. I didn’t know about the messages until a giant box labeled to my son Jayden arrived. He was excited and my wife started to cry. She hasn’t coped with this bullying issue well and ann went all out to my wife and Jayden the box was loaded with stuff for him . My wife’s favourite celebrity is aby gilmore 2 and she was overly excited to see Ann gave Jayden new affirmation cards by aby. I actually think my wife hid them 🤨 the card ann gave to my wife even made me a little teary and I just wanted to say thanks champ. It’s nice to come home to a happy kid and to see my wife has a friend who can help her in ways I cant. Jayden love his new lego and books to. The Batman pjs were a hit. Bloody Brilliant Ann

Thank you bent but not breaking. I wouldn’t make it through the week without your support. I contacted this website for help With my groceries and the lady ann who got back to me didn’t ask questions or make me feel judged. She only asked what my kids ages were. She actually told me that shes proud of me and that I should b proud of myself too. I felt a bit embarrassed to ask for help because there are people who need more help way more then me but Anne was really nice and so caring and she told me that it’s okay to reach out for help and that everyone deserves support when they need it no matter what there story is. The same day I messaged I got a box at my door with things I needed for my family and a giftcard to buy more groceries online. Im a new single mum with 4 kids in lockdown so this helped me a lot. They put things in the box for my kids and I think that was really nice because they are so bored at the moment and I don’t have much to keep them busy right now so it’s nice that this company thought of my kids. There was other nice gifts inside the box for me and a card that made me want to cry when it said I am not alone. Anne said I deserved to have some things of my own and that looking after myself is important so she added things in for me to. This company is underrated. They are doing a lot to help people like me and are real life angels on earth who don’t make you feel bad for asking for help. Thank you to the lady I spoke to for being so kind and thank you to this company for helping me and my family.

I want to be private please.

I don’t no what to say. I wasn’t expecting a parcel so I was confused when I had a knock at the door with a box with my name on it. I was nominated for a box and I didn’t know what it was and when I opened it up I cried like a baby. I don’t no Ann but I can say that she had changed my day. The day I got my box delivered was one of the hardest days of my life’s and it made me cry but for the first time in a long time I cried happy and not sad. It came at perfect timing and the card she added in my box was the final straw. The words on the card and the magnet was moving and it did what she said in her card that she hoped for. It made me feel loved and less alone. Thank you to my friend for nominating me and Ann for the Hard work that you do. The card that I got in my box had me tears. It was the reminder I needed 🥺 thank you ann

Firstly putting the pack together was so easy! Anne has a great selection of things that can really help someone take time out and do some relaxing self care. The bangle and the jumper fitted so well and he loves them!
The best part was hearing him say “I’ve let one person make me feel so alone and so worthless but now I can see that there are lots of people who love me so much that they’d go out of their way to do something like this for me. I’m not alone. I never knew how much love and support I had in my life!”
It helped to finally break through and lkft him out of a really bad time.
He now confidently wears his ‘Anxiery is a Liar’ shirt and knows he can get through anything because he has a community behind him.
The positive change this made to someone who is struggling in their mental health is priceless.
Thank you.

To learn of the amazing work Ann does for her community was a true blessing and a burst of inspiration. Knowing that my purchase from her website was in some way being passed on to others in need, was extremely comforting and heartwarming. I love my “You are enough” top and wear it with pride… because each and everyone of us is ENOUGH! Just as we are. Thank you for reminding us of this Ann.
You are doing such a wonderful thing for your community and you should be so proud of the person you are! Thank you for passing it on and inspiring all those around you. Amazing!

I absolutely love Ann and all that she has done. Words can’t express how amazing she is but I can express my love for the Bent But Not Breaking bangle I purchased from her, not only is it amazing quality but I wear it every day and the constant reminder for me is empowering!

I nominated a friend for a bent but not breaking care package, the joy that came with this simple gesture is something I cannot put into words. The work Anne does not only for the community but for individuals is that of an angel and I cannot thank the bent but not breaking team for all that they are and all that they do!

Oh seriously. Who am I kidding…. I could talk the hind leg off a Donkey so here I go.
From the moment this gorgeous woman popped up (with her booty) on my Insta, I was instantly magnetised to her. Her humour, her funny outlook but more importantly her passion and desire to help people is what resonated most.
I recently purchased a shirt ‘I am enough’ and I love wearing it! It has so many connotations and means something different, for different people, but for me…. it’s a reminder that I should be proud of who I am and always see my worth in this world.
I look forward to building on your friendship as each day passes.
Thank you Ann for being beautiful and for all the you stand for.
Love ya guts xx

Dear Ann,
Thank you.. Thank you for being strong, for being kind, for being compassionate. Thank you for being a sounding board for my worries and fears, for being funny, for being real. Thank you for being you.
You’ve become a safe place for me, a comfortable and familiar home for when my heart is tired and my soul is heavy.
The last few months has been hectic for both of us yet you always made time to check in on me, you have shown this stranger true kindness and now I’m proud to say that you’re my friend. You’re such a shining light of a human and I’m so grateful for you and our paths crossing.
I see you. I love you. I appreciate you.
Thank you for being the friend I never knew I needed xx

Someone from my Instagram told Ann that I was having a hard time. I am a new single mum of 4 and financially this has put a strain on me. I was ashamed that to be in a place were I couldn’t afford my weekly grocery shop and so stressed. Sometimes I still wondering if my kids would be better without me right now. I tried a few churches and food drives but I had no luck but I got a message from Ann from bent but not breaking and she was so nice to me. She introduced herself and sent some links of the work she does and asked if it would be alright for her to send me something. After I told her my emails she stopped replying and I started to cry because I thought she changed her mind but after 10 minutes I got an email with a $200 coles voucher and then Ann messaged me and said because I live in Perth she wasn’t able to deliver me something but it didn’t mean that she cant help me and that us mums have to stick together. She didn’t judge me at all or make me feel embarrassed and she reminded me that my kids don’t need things but they need love and that I am just having a hard time which doe’nt mean I’m not a a good mum . Ann sent me some phone numbers to places I can go to for help for more groceries and places to go to for help for support with My ex . He is making it very hard for me to get my money right now and Ann did more than she will ever no. Thank you for helping me and for being so nice to me Ann and for reminding me of things I forgot about myself. People like you are hard to come by

Mu daughter has suffered anxiety and bullying recently, and after one of her insta friends tagged her in bentbutnotbreaking give away, we come to finding Ann’s page, my daughter won the give-away and loves the bracelet she recieved as her gift. We both love the page and appreciate Ann’s generosity and care 🥰

She has helped me so much more than she could ever understand. It started with seeing her posts which made me feel less alone and focus on the fact that my anxiety was lying to me. She then offered support when she has so much going on herself. Ann provides essential items to people in need and “pick me up” packages that make such a difference to the community without asking for anything in return. So naturally being in a financial position to be able to contribute, I was happy to donate to the cause. Now that the online shop is open, I excitedly purchased some bracelets as Christmas presents and was not disappointed in the quality or the love in packaging/postage (my friends loved them!)
Ann is incredibly selfless and knows that sometimes life sucks but we have the power to turn it around, she is not here to sugar coat the world for you but she will make you know you are not alone. I will be forever grateful to my now friend xx

Ann, well what can I truly say other than I have been lucky enough to find such a beautiful friendship with you.Your passion, your drive and your willingness to keep pushing out good into the world is an inspiration to so many others. Your passion truly shows with the hard work, love and openness you show.
The deliveries, random acts off kindness and being there for people in need does not go unnoticed and I’m almost sure that you have saved people’s day or lives with the generosity you show with no questions asked.
This world needs so many more of you and you are forever needed, loved and appreciated ❤️

Thank you Ann and bentbutnotbreaking. I have struggled very hard with depression and stress. I use to work at a cafe but we got locked down And I havnt gone back. They don’t need me yet and I can barley afford to pay my rent let alone feed my 2 kidz. A friend nominated me and Anne delivered baby formula and food and stuff for my kids to play with. She even gave me 2 coles gift cards to do my food shopping. Ann told me that the formula was donated to her cause and that the bentbutnotbraking people are huge supports and that it’s a team effort so not to thank her but to thank Melbourne but I want to thank both so thanks Anne and her community who helped to make me less stress. I got a card in the box that said I was nominated as a reminder of my worth in this world and that I am loved and I no it could sound like nonsense but getting a surprise gift like this really did remind me that I am loved and it helped me a lot. Thank you so much everyone
