Donate an amount of your choice to Alice House. Over 80¢ of every dollar goes directly to charitable programs. You have the option of donating in memory of a loved one. You can also donate in honour of someone who has touched your life, and show them you care about the issue of intimate partner violence.

Feeling scared is common for children who witness intimate partner violence. Give the gift of comfort to a child who would like a new toy for their new life away from violence.
A woman needs to know that life without violence is possible. A secure atmosphere in which she can examine her options and make changes in her life is needed. Keep women and children safe by covering the cost of an external security camera and 24 hour alarm system for one month.
Personal cleanliness is necessary for one’s bodily health and well being. Put your donation towards diapers, baby wipes, soap, razors, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, and toothbrushes.
Give a child the tools to succeed in school. Fill a backpack with pencils, erasers, loose-leaf, glue sticks, notepads, and more.
There’s no fear when you’re having fun. Sponsor a mom and two children to watch a movie at the cinema, spend a day at the beach, or other carefree outing. “To me there is no picture so beautiful as smiling, bright-eyed, happy children; no music so sweet as their clear and ringing laughter” – P. T. Barnum.
