Starry Night – YWCA Durham Gala Fundraiser

Starry Night – YWCA Durham Gala Fundraiser


“Violence Against Women is the largest human rights violation around the world. Our community is no exception. Here in Durham Region we are dealing with one of the highest incidents of domestic violence in the province. The statistics speak for themselves. Sadly, in Ontario, a woman is killed every six days by her partner and in Durham Region; one in three women will experience abuse in their lifetime. But…change is possible!”

Trinity Design is proud to be working as the event photographer on behalf of YWCA Durham for this event to provide marketing materials for this essential service in Durham Region. Statistically 1 in 3 women you KNOW have been touched by domestic violence so join us for this event or make a donation here:

YWCA Durham – How we can help.

I have aligned our brand with the YWCA Durham team this year to support women experiencing domestic violence. The rates in Oshawa and Durham are alarming for domestic violence, higher on average than other areas in the province. Sadly the need is ever present and support paramount to help women get back on their feet after escaping the violence in their lives.

What can you do?

Starting immediately Trinity Design is collecting the following self care items for women in both the Y Wish Shelter and residency programs within the YWCA Durham organization. This includes the following NEW items (for health and sanitary reasons):

  • Feminine hygiene products: sanitary napkins and tampons
  • Toothpaste and toothbrushes, floss
  • Hand soaps, hand sanitizers, shower soaps
  • Baby products (diapers, pull ups, baby wipes, baby powder, shampoo, rash cream, baby oil)
  • Conditioners, shampoos, deodorant & razors (male & female), makeup, hair spray, self care products, hair dyes, NEW hair brushes

If you wish to make a cash donation visit:

Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $15 or more. YWCA Durham is a Registered Charity with Revenue Canada.

Thank you for supporting women in need in Durham Region – we look forward to capturing the experience and will accept donations at all seasonal and regular experience sessions, too.
