Each year, Rogers Media partners with the Canadian Women’s Foundation to raise money in their campaign to end violence against women.

Morning for Hope is a special broadcast by Breakfast Television and Rogers Radio to raise funds in support of shelters across Canada and violence prevention programs. In 2012, our loyal viewers and listeners helped raise $436,532 for women and children in need. Together we can help women and children who’ve experienced abuse and teach our teens about healthy relationships. Together, we can put an end violence.
