In 2015, the Bank of Montreal supported Women’s Expressions for a second time. The calendars were exposed at the Bank of Montreal, 1247 Wellington Street in Ottawa. The branch manager, Ms. Christine Kirkwood 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 $100.00 in donations. This donation was added to the total sales from the calendars and the amount raised from the Lia Sophia Fundraising Events, totaling $1,780.00. Because of charitable people, Women’s Expressions was able to give a cheque of $1,880.00 to the Interval House of Ottawa.
Nadine and I would like to thank Ms. Christine Kirkwood for taking the time to meet with us and plan this special event. Because of her kindness and the generosity of the clients at the Bank of Montreal, we were able to give more to the women shelter.
Christine has volunteered to become our next Women’s Expressions Model for the 2017 calendar. She will be representing the Goddess Fortuna. It is with great pleasure that we welcome her into our group. Until our next calendar!
Jo-Anne and Nadine
