Give the gift of safety, sisterhood & sanctuary:

Donate in honour of a friend or family member, and give a gift that nourishes and empowers. Your contributions make for meaningful Christmas gifts and sustain our ongoing work in the Downtown Eastside.


Fill out our tribute donation form. Under tributee email, you can put the email of the gift recipient, OR, your own email if you would prefer to print or send the acknowledgement yourself. You will receive the acknowledgement within a week. If you don’t receive it by then, contact us.

You can also choose for the gift recipient to receive their acknowledgement by mail, in which case we’ll send a postcard. If you would prefer to receive the postcard acknowledgement personally so that you can wait until Christmas, input your own address into the “Tributee Mailing Address” field.
