Foxy Fest 2022 is here! Our annual fundraiser in celebration of International Women’s Day! And while it will be a bit different from previous years, we are very excited to be launching a few female artist collaboration pieces for sale with proceeds being donated to the Canadian Women’s Foundation. For the month of March, these pieces will be for sale online and in select locations and proceeds from every sale will be donated. Want to just support the CWF? We’ve also set up a GofFundMe for those looking to support this amazing organization during the month of March. Best news is all those that purchase a collaboration piece OR donate to the GoFundMe will be entered in to win one of THREE ‘Free Brazilian Waxes for a Year’ packages from the location of their choice. Learn more about the feature artists and the CWF below!
Sarisha Polders – Reshi Designs:
“I am an illustrator and designer currently working out of Victoria, BC. I was born in Cyprus and spent most of my youth in Spain. Growing up in several different countries and being exposed to many cultures has definitely inspired my art through out my life. We left Spain for Canada where I studied art at NSCAD university in Halifax, NS before moving to the West Coast. I have always had a passion for the creative arts and have focused much of my time on honing my skills in illustration and design. There is nothing more satisfying than going from a rough concept to a finished product and making someone’s vision come to life.”
You can find the Reshi Designs Foxy Fest design (pictured) online and in store now.
Brookelyn Carter – Milky Sands:
“Milky Sands began in early 2019 when I was living back home in Australia. A practicing Yoga Teacher at the time, my purpose was helping women love and connect with their beautiful bodies. My aim was in changing the idea of health and well-being from being a reflection of your body, shape or size to instead be about your mindset: how we think and feel.
In July 2019 I moved to Canada and relaunched Milky Sands in a new country. Over the past 1.5 years Milky Sands has grown so much not just as a business but as an amazing community of women! Milky Sands is a warm, loving and support community filled with incredible women. Women I am so grateful to have connected with.”

The Canadian Women’s Foundation:
The Canadian Women’s Foundation is a national leader in the movement for gender equality in Canada. Through funding, research, advocacy, and knowledge sharing, we work to achieve systemic change. We support women, girls, and gender-diverse people to move out of violence, out of poverty, and into confidence and leadership. Since 1991, our partners and donors have contributed more than $150 million to fund over 2,500 life-transforming programs throughout the country.
You can donate to the CWF directly through our GoFundMe or by purchasing one of the artist pieces above.
