In honour of Valentines Day, 25% of our online sales made between February 11th–18th will be donated directly to Atira Women’s Resource Society
Atira is a Vancouver based not-for-profit organization committed to the work of ending violence against women.
The organization is based in the heart of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, just a few blocks from our head office. This neighbourhood, one of the oldest in the city, is an area of complex social issues such as homelessness, addiction and mental illness.
Atira supports and empowers women of all walks of life including “trans, two spirit and intersex women and or those who identify with a femme centre non-binary gender” as well as “women struggling with substance use and or mental and spiritual wellness.” They offer a wide variety of support services including legal advocacy, daycare, housing, outreach and education.
Not only is Wolf Circus close in proximity to Atira, we are also a group of women who believe that every individual is deserving of equality and empowerment, and this is the only way our community can truly thrive.
