Women charity to hold tag day

Deputy Governor Ginny Ferson was first in line to purchase her holiday button from local charity Dare2Be.

Dare2Be volunteers will hit the streets on Wednesday, selling both traditional tags and the holiday buttons.

Executive director Deborah Blakeney said in a press release: “There are so many tag days around this time of year so Dare2Be wanted to stand out from the crowd by offering donors a little extra festive cheer.

“In addition to regular tags, we are offering supporters who donate $4 or more a fun, festive button. There are several different styles, and we are hoping the community will give generously to collect one of each.”

Tag days traditionally take place on Fridays, but Ms Blakeney said: “We wanted to take advantage of the fact that there are only three discount Wednesday shopping days left until Christmas. So in addition to being in Hamilton, we will have volunteers positioned at grocery stores Islandwide. Hoping savvy shoppers will be in a festive and giving mood.”

Dare2Be's mission is to empower disenfranchised women to break their cycle of dependence through education, soft skills training, work shadows and full-time employment. All the proceeds from the tag day will go to supporting the programme.
