A new year baby

Boost Child & Youth Advocacy Centre

We want to help mom get ready for bundle of joy #3, expected this month.

Becoming a mom is one of those rare, blessed events that will forever change you—going from a mom of two to a mom of three is a whole other ball game. With the due date around the corner, we’re looking to help a very special mom get ready for her third baby. She is a member of the Boost Child and Youth Advocacy Centre, a place for families to seek support after experiencing a traumatic event. Boost works directly with families who have experienced child abuse and violence to connect them with the right family support services. They work tirelessly to ensure that each child they meet is safe, feels valued and can thrive.

We want to make sure this soon to be very busy mom of three has a stroller and car seat ready for when her newborn arrives at the end of January. She shared the news of the new baby with her daughter, who is ten and her youngest who is three. It was a heartwarming moment to tell her children they will be getting a baby brother—until they said they wanted a sister! With three little ones to care for, money is tight. That’s why we’re helping this supermom by raising funds for a stroller and car seat. 

How you can help

Let’s help Mom welcome her new baby by sorting out some mommy essentials. Troopers can pool funds to go towards the stroller and car seat to ensure baby can get around safely with the rest of the family.

More Details: Boost Child & Youth Advocacy Centre

Boost believes that every child deserves to be safe. They are dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and violence through education, awareness and collaboration with various community partners. Under one roof, they work with police, child protection, medical and mental health agencies to provide an individualized and child-friendly response for every child who has experienced abuse.

Since 2015, Boost has been supporting youth under the age of 18 years who have been trafficked or at high risk of being exploited. All of the youth they support live within the GTA, where the trafficking also occurred. These youth are from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds, from single-parent families to duel-parent families; from low-income households to high-income households; anyone is at risk of being trafficked.

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.
