What You'll Get
One out of two women in Canada has experienced physical or sexual abuse in their lifetime. One in six women has been abused while pregnant, and more than 360,000 children across the country are exposed to domestic violence each year. The Assaulted Women’s Helpline counsels women suffering from abuse and provides safety planning and emotional support with a confidential 24-hour, seven-day-a-week crisis telephone and TTY line.
For more than 25 years, the Assaulted Women's Helpline has served as a free and anonymous crisis line to all women in Ontario who have experienced any form of abuse. The helpline provides crisis counselling, safety planning, emotional support, information, and referrals to more than 49,000 women each year. However, due to limited funding, half of women who call during peak times face a busy signal.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help support women facing assault or emotional turmoil. If G-Team members raise $500, then The Assaulted Women’s Helpline can fund one day of crisis-phone-line operation, connecting as many women as possible with crisis counsellors. Each additional $500 raised will fund another day of the phone line.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100 per cent off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
