Women’s Expressions calendars were exposed at the Bank of Montreal, 1247 Wellington Street in Ottawa. The branch manager, M. Omar Abouzaher believed in the cause of Women’s Expressions; helping women and children fleeing domestic violence. A table was set up at the entrance of the bank with the information regarding the purpose of the calendars. For clients who were interested, they could either purchase a calendar or leave a donation. With an act of kindness, the clients of the bank gave a total of $95.00 in donations. This donation was added to the total sales from the calendars – $1,570.00. Because of charitable people, Women’s Expressions was able to give a cheque of $1665.00 to the Interval House of Ottawa.
Nadine and I would like to thank M. Omar Abouzaher for taking the time to meet with us and plan this special event. Because of him and the generosity of the clients at the Bank of Montreal, we were able to give more to the women shelter.
Jo-Anne and Nadine
