How we are giving back
We are always grateful for the roof over our heads, for the love of our family and friends, for the warm food we eat, and for our health. Unfortunately, not everyone experiences these basic comforts, and we want to do our part to help.
2020 has been a challenging year so far for many. With the COVID-19 Global Pandemic turning the world upside down, we are grateful for technology and the ability to offer our products through our website. As a young family, we can appreciate the struggles that many face in today's world.
We will be donating a percentage of all online sales to meaningful causes, starting with Children's Aid. By purchasing our handmade products through our website, you will be helping people in need.

Thank you for supporting a small Canadian Business, and helping me donate to a cause that I believe will build a stronger world.

Current Fundraising Efforts are going towards the Coldest Night of the Year Fundraiser. I will be walking on February 20th to raise money and awareness for Home Horizon through the CNOY.org Virtual Walk. My team and I are doing this to show the youth in our community that we care. The ultimate goal is to support vulnerable youth in our area as they weave through life's challenges and help steer them back into the community with confidence, tools and abilities.If you can, please feel free to donate to my team below. Every dollar counts! I will also be donating a percentage of my sales from January and February to the cause.
April 29th, 2020 - we donated to the Children's Aid Emergency Covid-19 Appeal. Thank you to everyone who purchased a basket and helped us donate to this cause.
We look forward to giving back with your support in the future.
May 30th, 2020 - we donated to Black Lives Matter, Canada. Thank you to everyone who purchased baskets in the month of May and helped donate to such a meaningful cause. I'm positive we can change the future, and treat every person equally with love and compassion.

July 14th, 2020 - we donated to Jack.org which is the only charity training and empowering young leaders to revolutionize mental health in every province and territory in Canada. In January of 2020 I personally joined a local group here in Collingwood, and we took part in a 'Brain Freeze' jump into Georgian Bay to raise funds and awareness for youth mental health.
This summer, two local young men decided to swim 32km straight in Georgian Bay to also raise funds and awareness. The mental and physical strength of these boys inspires me daily and inspired me to donate. Youth are the future.
December 2020 - we donated to the Shoebox Project in our local community which is a registered charity that collects and distributes gift-filled Shoeboxes to women impacted by homelessness in communities across Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom. For women who have been displaced from their homes and estranged from their families, special occasions can be particularly challenging. Often, women report feeling disconnected from society, invisible and alone. A Shoebox gift is a powerful reminder for a woman that she has not been forgotten and that she remains a valued and respected member of her community.
