Did you know that half of all women in Canada have experienced at least one incident of physical or sexual violence since the age of 16?
I’m proud to support the Canadian Women’s Foundation. They specialize in helping women and girls move out of violence, out of poverty, and into confidence – and are the only national foundation in Canada dedicated to giving women and girls a chance for a better life.
Why focus on women and girls?
Improving gender equality improves economic and social conditions for everyone.
Women and girls deserve a chance for a better life—free from violence, poverty, and stereotypes.
Women and girls face different kinds of economic and social challenges.
Helping women and girls is cost effective and creates very successful outcomes.
YOU can help. This May, raise hope for women who have experienced violence by purchasing specially marked Shop for Hope products at WINNERS and HomeSense stores.
Net proceeds from Shop for Hope product sales go directly to the Canadian Women’s Foundation Campaign to End Violence. Your contribution helps support over 445 women’s shelters and funds community violence prevention programs across Canada. This May, shop to make a difference in the lives of women and children – Shop for Hope!
Let’s start the discussion. Join us for the @cdnwomenfdn #raisehope Twitter Chat on Thursday, April 30th at 9:00pm EDT. We’ll celebrate women, share ways you can contribute, and of course, show off the latest Shop for Hope products (and give away six prize bundles, too!).
RSVP below for a chance to win, and see you on Thursday night.
