One Billion Rising is a global initiative with a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With a world population of over 7 billion, this adds up to more than one billion women and girls. 

Every year, the WSO charity volunteer teams get together in dozens of cities across Canada to assemble care packages to deliver to women and children in local shelters. The WSO charity is committed to raising awareness about this issue in the community and supporting women and children who are survivors of gender-based violence.
