This 2020 Mother’s Day Campaign is inspired by the ZypChicks’ own mother, the remarkable Tillie Zyp.
Tillie was a warrior for social justice and a strong advocate for marginalized women and children. Our parent’s home was always open to those in need.
This month, ZypChicks will donate 20% of sales to local women’s’ shelters. The Zyp sisters will then personally match the donation, so effectively 40% of your purchase will go to local women’s shelters.
If able, ZypChicks challenges you to match our personal donation and give 20% of your purchase to women’s shelters.
This pandemic has quarantined people at home. And for many, unfortunately, home isn’t safe.... Home isolation, while vital to fight the pandemic, gives the abuser more power. Domestic violence rates are up all over the world.
There is help, but shelters need our support.
Please contribute to ZypChicks efforts in supporting women and children this Mothers’ Day.
When you’re in the midst of an abusive relationship, it can be hard to recognize the signs.
Please reach out and get help if you need it! It can happen to anyone! If the threat is immediate, call 911. In Edmonton, the 24-hour Distress line, 780-482-4357 (HELP) is available for other support.
