As women, we know that we are stronger together. Our goals with Callisto Crate are not only to highlight books with strong women, but to help women to be strong at a time when they might need it.

To this end, Callisto Crate pledges to donate 1% our profits and products to the Kamloops Y Women’s Emergency Shelter. Their Intervention and Support Services offers a continuum of services to help women and children find safety and support when leaving violence.

This is done with the help of Pledge 1%. Pledge, according to their website, is “a corporate philanthropy movement dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business.”  They do this by encouraging businesses and individuals to contribute 1% of their profit, product, or time to a local nonprofit.
