PAST INITIATIVES 

Purple Box Campaign

September - November 2020

This campaign helped women and children in need to overcome certain obstacles. This campaign involved sending essential items to those vulnerable in London, Ontario. We collected donations from individuals in the community and used this money to create care packages consisting of personal hygiene and protective equipment. Overall, more than $2,000 was collected to purchase items for the packages! These packages were then donated to the Anova Women's Shelter and My Sisters Place located in London.

School Initiatives

2020

Our first fundraising event was a bake sale in support of women abuse prevention month with all proceeds going to the Anova women's shelter. Additionally, we organized a pledge signing campaign against women abuse along with a white ribbon awareness campaign throughout A. B. Lucas Secondary School in London. During the holidays, we arranged a Christmas Card Sales Campaign for the Anova Women's Shelter and participated in the Shoebox Campaign led by the A. B. Lucas Secondary School. Finally, in the week prior to International Women's Day we promoted significant accomplishments made by women, organized a purple shirt day, and created an awareness video which was shared with the student body at A. B. Lucas.

Champions of Today

2021

 

The Champions of Today Interview Initiative was a way for people in the community to learn about how other local, successful business owners have overcome their own obstacles during their business journey. Champions of Change interviewed local owners and then wrote articles based on that interview. The articles were written in hopes to inspire others to take on their own business ventures, projects and passions.

Equality Artistry

2021

 
Equality Artistry was an art auction initiative that entailed creating and running a female-driven art show and auction. We contacted female and gender diverse artists of all kinds, professional or non-professional. We requested the donation of an art piece they feel would represent how they view change within our society. A determined charity that lines with the belief and support of gender equality received donated proceeds from the event. Collaborating with a fellow female art auctioneer, we had bidders submit all offers before the main event.

Made to Lead

 
      This initiative focused on opening the mindsets of young girls and boys to the endless career opportunities available to them regardless of gender stereotypes, empowering them to achieve their goals and encouraging others along the way. We ran workshops for every age group. Our interactive workshops educated youth on matters such as different career opportunities, confidence and empowerment, leadership skills, inequality/gender stereotypes and how to overcome them, as well as how to influence change in your life, in an environment that is engaging and age-appropriate.
