GIVE ME SHELTER

A collection of chic and easy must-haves with charity in mind

Did you know that Canada has over 400 shelters for abused women?  Finding ways to support women’s causes is always near and dear to our fashionable hearts.  The Canadian Women’s Foundation has just unveiled this year’s Shelter From The Storm campaign — full of do-good springtime essentials. Heart-printed T’s, an eco-chic reusable tote, triple-milled soap sets and umbrella round out the offering.  This collection is available now at Winners and HomeSense stores nationwide, with all net proceeds going straight to community violence prevention programs and women’s shelters across the country.  Particularly touching, products feature a ‘Heart of Hope’ emblem, designed by Tammy, a domestic abuse survivor who was able to turn her life around with support from her local shelter.  The collection starts at just $1.49, with nothing over $13, making it very affordable to aid to women and children escaping violence.
