We want to wish a Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. While this day is meant to celebrate you, we encourage you to think about the women in your lives. Many women face violence and discrimination on a regular basis.
While WTG aims to empower women in our community, we need EVERYONE involved to make progress. You can make a difference today by participating in our Virtual Garage Sale. Donate gently used items to be exchanged for monetary donations through Giveshop, or buy an item that has been posted! You can also donate directly through our website.
The pandemic has brought numerous challenges into our world. We have encountered a new social and economic landscape, and each individual is affected in a different way. Unfortunately, the pandemic has heavily impacted women survivors, many of whom are now in inescapable violent situations. Our Covid-19 Relief Support program aims to help these women survivors with or without children by providing PPE, sanitizers, and other useful items. We rely on corporate partners and individual donations to give as much as we can to these women during these trying times. To support these women, WTG is hosting a Virtual Garage Sale fundraiser from May 25th – June 25th. Sell/or Donate your gently used items through the Giveshop platform, the profits will go to our beneficiary, Interval House of Hamilton.

This weekend is a special time to appreciate mothers and all the hard work that they do. We are thankful for all of the care, love, and dedication each mother gives, along with their endless contributions to our communities.
This Mother’s Day, we ask you to think about women survivors and their children. Many of these families are facing numerous challenges that have only been worsened during the pandemic. That is why we started the Covid-19 Relief Support program. You can make a survivor’s Mother’s Day very special by making a donation today.
Thank you Salon Fortelli and Spa for supporting our Covid Relief Support Program (CRSP) with your generous donation. Your beautiful gifts will brighten Mother’s day for women survivors at our beneficiary shelter, Interval House Hamilton.

Gender-based violence (GBV) can sometimes seem like a thing of the past, however, “67% of Canadians know a woman who has experienced physical or sexual abuse,” (Canadian Women’s Foundation). The pandemic has made some GBV situations inescapable, putting women at a greater risk of serious injury or even death. Gender-based violence can also lead to significant trauma for children who witness it, while encouraging the cycle of violence. We all need to come together to prevent GBV and support survivors to help create a safer community for everyone. WTG creates programming and raises funds for survivors. Make a donation today here
