Shop for Hope Gifts GIVEAWAY – Giving Back During Christmas #HolidayGifts2014

‘Tis the season to give hope with gifts that lift women and children in your community beyond abuse, and help build better tomorrows. Canadian Women’s Foundation empowers women and girls in Canada to move out of violence, out of poverty and into confidence.  This year Canadian Women’s Foundation has partnered with Winners and HomeSense to bring a line of Holiday gifts which will bring happiness to the receiver while also bringing hope to women and children because 100% of net proceeds help support local shelters and violence prevention programs in your community.

Think about that for a moment, 100% of proceeds go directly to helping others! I am totally into this because the foundation is dedicated to ending violence against women and that’s a cause we choose to support wholeheartedly.

The statistics provided by Canadian Women’s Foundation are alarming:

  • Half of all women in Canada have experienced at least one incident of physical or sexual violence since the age of 16
  • 67% of all Canadians say they personally know at least one woman who has been sexually or physically assaulted
  • On average, every six days a woman in Canada is killed by her intimate partner.  In 2011, In 2011, from the 89 police reported spousal homicides, 76 of the victims (over 85%) were women
  • On any given day in Canada, more than 3,300 women (along with their 3,000 children) are forced to sleep in an emergency shelter to escape domestic violence. Every night, about 200 women are turned away because the shelters are full.


With our Holiday Gift Guide, each of the bloggers has a charity which they’re donating to, we plan on adding to our donation by purchasing Gifts of Hope for those on our lists! These items are so amazingly pretty and again, 100% of the profits go to charity!
