Tap to End Violence

Tap to End Violence

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes launches ‘Tap to End Violence,’ a campaign that introduces touchless giving for the entire month of August to help raise the critical funds required to provide life-changing and life-saving supports to survivors of violence.

We’ve teamed up with dynamic community connectors and local businesses to help us ‘tap to end violence’ and meet our Walk a Mile in Her Shoes fundraising goal of $150,000. Visit a participating ‘tap to end violence’ location to tap your smartphone or debit/credit card to give $5, $10 or $20, connect with a Walk Star or visit us at community events across Hamilton and Halton to tap to end violence, win prizes and more!

Can’t make it out?

You can still ensure that survivors of violence have what they need to stay safe.

Meet Our Walk Stars

Our 2021 Walk Stars promote Walk a Mile in Her Shoes throughout the month of August using their own personalized tiptap device. A special thanks to our fleet of Walk Stars who have signed on to engage their networks to tap to end violence. The Walk Star receiving the most taps throughout August will receive special recognition!
