Here's what we really need to stockpile

Interesting fact, Covid-19 stockpilers have moved on from toilet paper and paper towels to the more important necessities of dumbbells, gaming consoles and alcohol.

Reality is that the majority of people aren’t worried about kitting out a home gym.

Most people are struggling to access the same items they couldn’t afford before coronavirus turned our world upside down.  That’s why the most important stockpile we need to replenish is the one Birth Mark doula’s have access to for new moms.  Birth Mark is a registered charity offering free doula services to at-risk and marginalized moms in Toronto and Hamilton.  Their birthing support goes beyond pre and post natal care to ensure their clients are in the best position possible to create a healthy environment for the babies.

How you can help

The Birth Mark stockpile is short on the following in-demand items: size 3-6 diapers, baby shampoo and diaper cream.  We’re pooling funds to top up their supply so they can continue to offer these essential items to the moms in our community who need it most.

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.
