While the world is standing up to defend the lives of black men, I implore everyone to remember that black and indigenous women are at an even greater risk of violence than their male counterparts, including in their own households.
With this in mind, I managed to fundraise enough to purchase 100 face masks and 2 bottles of hand sanitizer for the ladies at the Chez Doris women’s shelter in Montreal!
It’s better to purchase face masks when donating, because homemade masks are not good quality enough for use in commercial settings, although they are fine for personal use when running errands.
If you have PPE to spare, this website https://en.donnezlaprotection.com/ will match make you with those who are in the greatest need, so that you don’t have to figure out for yourself where to donate!
