Social Mission
Above all, kindness is our currency. We Donate. Share. Support. and Connect. As Mamas, we need to create a supportive village in which to raise our children. We are working every day to change the landscape of poverty for mamas and families in BC and across Canada. Items are never sold, and donations given directly to the organization will be distributed to our high risk, community based mama clients. Financial donations support the maintenance of our programs and are greatly appreciated!

Stories of our community involvement
When the world shuts down and you don’t know how you’re going to keep filling the gaps in poverty relief when everyone is in the same boat, your community steps up.

When we had to cancel our biggest fundraiser of the year, we had to get creative and we needed some serious hands on deck to make that happen.

Wow. Did they ever step up.

We are so excited to announce the lineup of speakers for our inaugural @stayathomegala as well as our incredible line up of private chefs!

Thank you to:

Our MC @caseyclarke (has been MC since first event in 2015)

We can’t wait to hear your inspiring words while safe at home in our Bubbles. Ideally sitting back relaxing with your very own private chef!

We are so excited to have found a way to still host a pandemic-safe event, giving our friends and supporters the chance to be part of the change we need in this world.

Get your tickets now and check out our list of absolutely incredible chefs available for auction starting today (closes October 31st).

To complement your incredible culinary creation, with each private chef comes a case of paired @sandhillwines from our incredible title wine sponsor.

Thank you to every single person making this event a success. It truly takes a village.

“Unless somebody like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better it’s not”

Thank you all for caring an awful lot, can’t wait to see you all on Nov 14th!

In the last few months the requests for help have gone through the roof.
Like more than a 100% increase...

Families who used to bring us donations are now coming to us for help, for food and diapers and in some cases emergency subsidy to avoid losing their homes.

It’s been hard to keep the shelves stocked during regular times let alone recently, so we put a call out to our community for help.

Wow. Did you all ever show up in force. Individuals, friends, companies, couples and local heroes of every kind stepped up to help us fill the massive gap in poverty relief support with, and for us.

Thank you just doesn’t seem enough, but thank you anyway.

The tears were flowing freely, from staff, donors and mama clients alike.

The relief was palpable.

Thank you for helping us keep kids fed, clothed, housed and loved during this very strange and difficult time. You’ve been the silver lining to the cloud of COVID 19 since day one, and we couldn’t imagine doing this crazy life without all of you.

Some pretty big and exciting things happening in our world! We just celebrated a huge milestone with @modernpurair and their foundation @purkidsfoundation who have donated over $62,000 since May 2019! This is thanks to the most recent surprise $8000 donation we now get to spread across the 16 communities we support through this partnership.

We have also launched our first edition of our monthly newsletter, the Kindness Chronicle. Huge love to our new national HR coordinator, Anisha for spearheading this awesome project to showcase our incredible partners-and to ALL of team Mamas for making it happen.

This is community.

This is contagious compassion.

This is what will continue to bridge the divide.

This is what will bring hope back to so many who are having a hard time imagining how to get through tomorrow.

This is a small sample of stories of lives changed through this partnership.

This is what 1% can do to change the lives of your neighbours.

This is also a clip of Shannon doing her first presentation in 10 months 😂 For anyone who thinks it’s perfect every time, think again!

Reminder- your support does not need to be financial, lend hand when you can, I promise it’ll make a difference.

How do you give your 1%?

A Mama knows her child and their needs. They know how to comfort especially when they’re sick, and the power a teddy bear has.
A huge thank you to Mamas for Mamas for dropping off all these cute and cuddly teddy bears for our BC Children’s Hospital visit with Elsa❤️
