Three Oaks wants INKED to raise awareness – Toronto Star

Three Oaks Foundation has announced that registration for the second annual INKED for Three Oaks tattooing fundraiser is now available.

Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations, affecting women of all backgrounds across the globe. As the COVID-19 Pandemic persists into the colder months, reports from the frontlines have shown an alarming increase in violence against women and girls.

INKED for Three Oaks aims to bring awareness to the Three Oaks shelter and services as well as violence against women. This fundraiser is a commitment to the promotion of equality and the end of violence against women and children in the Quinte community.

The tattooing fundraiser is a community effort designed in an effort to make up for the shelters shortfall in government funding. During the first annual INKED for Three Oaks event in November of 2019, over 100 individuals participated and the fundraiser raised a total of $16,000.

The 2021 INKED for Three Oaks fundraising event has been organized in collaboration and partnership with East Coast Tattoos, Justapinch, Lonewolf and Picton Tattoo Club. INKED for Three Oaks is set to run from Monday, January 18th to Friday, January 22nd. All local tattoo shops are currently following Public Health guidelines in respect to COVID-19 and will continue to do so in the new year.
