A Battle For Screen Time

Romero House

This is one fight we can help everyone win

Remember when parents had rules and parameters around screen time?  Today, as parents struggle to balance work with homeschooling, kids spending a large chunk of their day on a laptop or a computer is less of an evil and more of a saving grace!

For one family of six from Croatia with only one device in the house and two teenage girls in high school, offering both girls more screen time is a luxury they don’t have.  The one family computer is in high demand from all six people for work and school.

As hope fads that classrooms will open before summer, these parents know they need another device to ensure both girls keep up with their studies.

How you can help

After learning about this family from our friends at Romero House, we know neighbours would want to help ensure these girls have what they need to succeed in school and life.  We’re pooling funds and working with Reboot Canada to purchase a slightly used laptop for the family.

Troop Started a Year Ago – Is it Working?

It was a year ago this month that I started Troop. The idea was simple. I believed that if more neighbours knew about the needs in their area then they would be more willing to help. I believed (and still do!) that more people want to help

Is COVID-19 Actually A Good Thing?

COVID-19? A good thing? No. Hell no. But damn there is a seriously bright silver lining here and I hope I’m not the only one squinting. Devastation caused by the coronavirus has reached all corners of the world, but so has a level of compassion that we haven’t seen in decades, if ever.

During these trying times, we offer some light-hearted relief by sharing some of the most comical memes, videos and tweets that have popped up over the past few weeks. In the words of Mark Twain, “The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.” Enjoy.
