A portion of all sales and vendor fees (and 50% of anything contributed to the tip jar) will go to the following group! This group was amongst those nominated on this site. Our vendors then voted that this cause should be the one to receive the funds.
The Sexual Assault Support Center of Ottawa
The Sexual Assault Support center (SASC) is a registered Canadian charity and community-based organization that was established in 1983. We support all women and survivors. This including those from diverse groups, particularly, though not limited to, persons with disabilities, Indigenous people, immigrants and refugees, racialized persons, persons from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, and those with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, and expressions. SASC Ottawa strives to be a safe space for survivors of all intersections, and we believe a commitment to end gender-based violence is centred in the foundation of anti-oppressive values.
