Choose a local org or DONATE to the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal

It’s May!  That means it’s time for our annual fundraiser in support of First Nations women.  As always, Risa and Amy will be contributing our profits for the month of May to support the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal.

In addition, we’re asking our community to make a donation/reparation.  We know that most of you are coming to us from the United States, so, wherever you are, we encourage you to find a local Native Women’s Shelter to support.  (some places don’t have First Nations specific orgs so we’ll also accept donations to shelters for vulnerable women and children, sex workers, or victims of violence, but we would appreciate a focus on support of indigenous people.)

This year, we’ve got more than twenty prizes,  thousands of dollars worth of classes, art, jewellery, readings, books and more donated by our Coven at large, just waiting to be yours.  Full list of prizes below.  

SO here’s what you’re gonna do...  

Make your donation of ten dollars or more.  Take a screenshot of your receipt and email it to with the subject line REPARATION, what country you’re in, plus the amount of your donation.  The amount is important because for every $10, you’ll get one entry into the raffle for these prizes.  So if you donate $50, you’ll get five entries, and so on.  Winners will be chosen at random and announced on June first.  Plus everyone who donates will automatically get discount codes from our favourite witchy businesses - Haus Witch and The Death Witch!

As always, this fundraiser is an experiment, so if you think it’s a cool idea, PLEASE help us make it successful by making a small reparation to First Nations women who have been systematically marginalized and disenfranchised both socially and economically.  Let’s raise some real money, make real change, and be blown away by what we can do when we work together.
