To commemorate Woman Abuse Prevention Month, we are organizing our 4th Annual Shine the Light on Woman Abuse Campaign that includes asking Halton businesses to turn purple for the month of November. Purple is a symbol of courage, survival and honour, and has come to symbolize the fight to end woman abuse.

 A goal of the Shine the Light on Woman Abuse campaign is to raise awareness of violence against women and to stand in solidarity with abused women and support them in understanding that any shame and/or blame they may feel does not belong to them.

Across the Region, Halton Women’s Place is asking local businesses, schools, churches, apartments and homes in the area to get involved – including YOU!


Halton Women’s Place (HWP) will be creating a Virtual Grab Bag, which will highlight and give access to special deals from participating businesses throughout the campaign.

This “grab bag” will be available online during the month of November through a link provided by HWP, and will contain downloadable gift cards or coupons to businesses around Halton just for Woman Abuse Prevention Month in November.

We will create the coupon for your business – All you will need to provide is your logo and a description of what you want printed on the coupon (please view coordinating “Creating Your Coupon” form attached to email). You will also get final approval of the coupon.  You will just need to ensure you’re your employees know to honour the deal on the coupon during November.

We will provide you with a PDF of your company’s coupon so that you can circulate it and post it to your website as well.

We will provide you with the link to the site, which you can circulate on social media or provide to your clients. HWP will also promote our “Virtual Grab Bag” and all coupons throughout November on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, as well as on our website.

Here are some suggestions for types of deals you might create through your business for Shine the Light:

  • $1 off a certain product (or any dollar amount)
  • 10% off a certain product (or any percentage)
  • BOGO offers
  • A certain percentage of the sale of one item (or purple items!), goes to HWP
  • Offering a special purple menu option (drink, smoothie, appetizer, dessert, etc.)
  • Offering a deal on all purple items/clothing
  • Offering a special deal on purple manicures

Please view our “Creating Your Coupon” information form to obtain more details on what the creation of a coupon for our Virtual Grab Bag would look like.
