In honour of the many lives tragically lost at the hand of domestic violence in Canada.

The WIN House Hashtag Campaign is all about creating more and more awareness about the issue of domestic violence in our community! WE NEED YOUR HELP!

The WIN House Hashtag Campaign is all about working together to spread some love, have some fun, and create a personal connection to DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. The sad part is most of us have that connection.

For so much tragedy there is in the effects of domestic violence, there is also as much beauty and triumph in the rising from the grasp of it.

Together, let us spread some awareness and love! Let us create some stir and start a conversation! Join us in sharing your story and your connection to domestic abuse by choosing one (or all) of the hashtags listed below and following the directions to spread the word!


Did you know that 1 in 3 women are currently affected by domestic violence in Canada? Scary, isn’t it?

Let us break that down for you…that means that, for every third door down from you, someone is living in silence and in fear of abuse at the hands of a supposed loved one. Every – third – door.

If we are 6 degrees of separation from everyone in the world, you know someone who has or is currently experiencing the heinous, traumatic and often, murderous actions of domestic violence. AND/OR, it is you that is personally living in this environment and you are silently screaming for help.

Did you know that every six days a woman in Canada is killed by domestic violence?

It is only through putting a voice to domestic violence that we can ultimately break the silence that powers up and fuels the abuser’s need to control.

Everyone has a voice. Everyone has a connection. Everyone can ACT and break down the barriers, the humility, and the fear of abuse. But together we can make a difference. Together we can break the silence. Together, with love and kindness, we can reach the hearts of those suffering behind closed doors and change the story of their tomorrow.

We can all shine a light on domestic violence and bring it out of the shadows. And, we can celebrate the triumphs and selfless contributions of all of us who share in the fight to end domestic violence once and for all. So, come on…join us! Join the WIN House Hashtag Challenge and shine a light for those who need our help!
