Discovery House Kicks Off Holiday Season Giving Campaign

December 1, 2021

Gift of Hope Campaign runs from December 1 to December 31st

Calgary, AB – Discovery House has launched its month-long Gift of Hope fundraising campaign to support programs and services for over 600 women and their children leaving domestic violence. Instead of gifts or stocking stuffers, Discovery House is encouraging people to give the Gift of Hope this holiday season. This act of generosity will help change the lives of hundreds of women and their children fleeing domestic violence.

Domestic violence does not discriminate – it affects women and children of all socio-economic backgrounds and ethnicities, and unfortunately it is on the rise.

"The holidays are always a difficult time for the women and children we support. With increased isolation because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many women have not had the opportunity to leave and have experienced more significant violence," says Leslie Hill, Executive Director for Discovery House. "Your support is a gift of hope for women and children in our community who are leaving domestic violence, and your act of generosity will change their lives. Discovery House was recently recognized as a Top Women’s Charity by Charity Intelligence and received a 5/5-star rating. Donors can feel confident that their donations are making a big impact.”

Double your impact and help Discovery House end the traumatic cycle of domestic violence for women and their children.

The Auxilium Foundation has generously offered to match all Gift of Hope donations dollar-for-dollar once Discovery House raises $100,000. That means that when they hit $100,000, the Auxilium Foundation will match the total funds raised dollar-for-dollar.

Let's give the Gift of Hope this holiday season. Visit discoveryhouse.ca/donate to donate today. Together, we can break the cycle and stop domestic violence from echoing in future generations.
