2015 Mom Cafe Charity Summary

We try to do a lot for the community. Although I am not great at keeping track of everything we have done, I couldn’t begin to tell you each giveaway (I do remember glamping, scavenger hunt prizes, gift cards, 100+ door prizes & such) nor could I log every nice gesture, I have kept track of a few charitable things that I wiMom Cafe Ontario Charity Initiativesll note below. The year of 2015 was a great year of community support and love! We had 2 very successful events in March and November which I hope all who attended got something out of from prizes and grab bags to activities and fun. We pride ourselves on not being just another vendor show but a way to give back to the community and an event for the community. We also offered monthly community playdates exploring different local businesses.

I do know that WE collectively as a Mom Cafe community amazingly supported/gave the following in 2015:
*$100 to Girls Inc
*$100 to Hearth Place
*$50 to Durham Down Syndrome Association
*400+ lbs food for Salvation Army
*1000 pop can tabs to be made into jewelry with portion proceeds going back to Mom Cafe charities in 2016

*$50 to The Denise House

*$100 date night to a couple for Christmas
*$50 of gas gifts cards to families with ill children needing to visit Sick Kids

This is community support and love. Your attendance at our events, your comments on our posts, sharing and word of mouth make us a stronger community and more charitable each year. For that, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you. I can’t wait to see what we do in 2016. Happy Holidays.
