Every year, November is Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Canada. In 2014, The Women’s Resource Centre chose to mark the occasion by encouraging women to create postcards offering messages of resiliency and wisdom to women using the services of other women’s resource centres and shelters in Manitoba. Since the start of the program the Postcards of Positivity project has reached over 800 women at over 25 different agencies across Manitoba.
During the month of November we set out postcard paper, pencil crayons, crayons, markers, stickers, magazine clippings, and glue for people to design their messages. At the end of the month, the postcards are divided up and sent out.
Here’s a sampling of some of the beautiful postcards that were made (click to view larger images). Thank you so much to all of the women who took part!
