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 and that two-thirds of Canadians know a woman who has experienced abuse? Take a minute to take it all in, I had to re-read the stat three times, as I couldn’t believe how high the numbers were.

The Canadian Women’s Foundation has partnered with Winners and HomeSense to create the “Shop for Hope” campaign and you too can help stop the violence by shopping the collection that runs now through May 11th, 2014. The unique exclusive line has a little something for everyone and the net proceeds from the “Shop for Hope” collection, which includes T-Shirts, Pillows, Jewellery Boxes, Inspiration Quotes, Throws, Candles, Mugs and more, will help raise hope for women and children in local communities across Canada.
