For The Sisters: A Fundraiser
Sat, 25 Mar 2017, 20:00 – Sun, 26 Mar 2017, 00:00 PDT
Regardless of housing or financial status, all women should be granted access to feminine hygiene products. All women have the right to keep themselves safe, clean and comfortable during menstruation. Women should not have to choose between buying tampons or eating dinner.
Inspired by this short clip by Bustle.com, we've identified barriers women living on the streets face. The reality is many have limited or no access to feminine hygiene products. And so, we want to help.
Our mission is to raise funds for our partners in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. All funds raised will go towards purchasing feminine hygiene products and will be directly distributed to:
-The Bloom Group (Powell Place Emergency Shelter for Women, Springhouse Emergency Shelter)
-Atira Women's Resource Society
-Vancouver Women's Health Collective.
Please join us on Saturday March 25th for an evening of live music, desserts, guest speakers and a raffle draw with tons of amazing prizes from our generous sponsors. All proceeds will benefit women in Downtown Vancouver.
For the Sisters is a group of women in Vancouver working hard to increase accessibility to health and wellness for our sisters in the DTES.
