Women's March - Windsor Bus
Every dollar raised above our target now goes to the Welcome Centre Shelter for Women Pink Door Campaign in honour of #wmwWindsor!
Show your support and with a $30 contribution get your #wmwCanada toque! [UPDATE on Jan 18th: we have SOLD OUT of toques . We will keep this site up until after the march with every dollar now going to the Welcome Centre Shelter for Women - thank you for continuing to support.]
Heartfelt thanks to each and everyone who has contributed financially and who supports us in spirit.
About the campaign: On Jan. 21, 2017 (the day after the inauguration of Donald Trump), a demonstration will take place near the Capitol called the Women's March on Washington.
The "Windsor bus" includes 56 participants from across the Southwest Ontario region. It was the first bus to be organized out of Canada (there are ten buses now booked in total) to join the more than 200,000 people who are preparing to march in solidarity and in support of the continued struggle for women's equity and equality: we will not allow our rights to roll back. Women’s rights are human rights.
The funds raised from this campaign support the Windsor bus contingent by helping sponsor 4 spots, offsetting costs of supplies for the participants (including the #wmwCanada toque that will identify the Canadian contingent) and the "Windsor & Southwest Ontario" #wmwCanada banner. Update: five spots on the bus have been sponsored!
Your support in any amount, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated! All remaining proceeds will be contributed to the Welcome Centre Shelter for Women in Windsor - and it symbolizes your support of this endeavour.

Please note that we have "sold out" of the hats!
However, we will keep this GoFundMe campaign going until after the march so that people can still contribute in support of us with all proceeds now going to the Welcome Centre Shelter for Women - at time of this update, we have raised over $1,000 - thank you!!
We are immensely grateful for your words of support as well as your financial support. We are pleased to inform you that your contributions have helped sponsor FIVE women to participate in the march.
But please don't stop giving! Every dollar raised now goes directly to the Welcome Centre Shelter for Women Pink Door Campaign in honour of WMW!! More about the Welcome Centre and their need for a new building: http://www.welcomecentreshelter.com/pink-door.php
