uoGLOW: donations to women's shelters

Most women arrive at a shelter with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. Therefore, they rely on community support and donations. In a time like now where the COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for many, shelters have been overwhelmed with women and children seeking safety from gender-based violence. This is a critical time to support shelters in providing women with resources to feel empowered.

It is now especially important to be reminded of ways we can help fellow women who are struggling to get by, without simple necessities such as hygienic products, or enough money to feed themselves (and in some cases, their children). uoGLOW will host fundraisers, and all proceeds will go towards different women's shelters throughout Ottawa.

uoGLOW is a club that emphasizes using make-up and skincare practices as a method to empower uOttawa women, increasing their self-esteem and confidence. Make-up often carries several stigmas and negative connotations in society, so our goal is to help dissolve those and reclaim make-up as a creative tool of self-expression and self-love. GLOW is founded by an ethnically diverse team whose goal is to also work on breaking society’s “ideal” of what constitutes “beauty” and to be inclusive to individuals of all ethnicities.
