Nellie's

Satisfying the sweet tooth

We’ve all got a weak spot for sweets that needs to be satisfied every now and then. Temptation comes in a variety of delicious forms, and despite the calories, those cravings can turn into an insatiable blood-thirst that must be fulfilled. You can’t trick yourself into thinking those veggies are cookies!

Nellie’s is a 36-bed shelter for women and children who have experienced oppression such as violence, poverty and homelessness, and they’re hoping to get their hands on some treats for the kids. They don’t spend money on items considered “unhealthy,” so it’s not often their families get to indulge in sweets, not even on Halloween!

How you can help

Once in a while, every kid should get to enjoy a sugar high; we’re pooling funds for chocolates, candies, toothbrushes and toothpaste (because we can’t be responsible for cavities). Let’s give these kids something sweet to smile about with the utensils to make them sparkle!

They operate a 36-bed emergency shelter in Toronto for women and their children who are leaving situations of violence, poverty, and homelessness. They help women and their children access safe and affordable housing.

When Everything Changed

It was February 2018, and I was running super late for an important pitch meeting for a big account. I was stressed and anxious about closing the deal. I parked in the underground lot and hightailed it up the stairs to the street for the short walk to work. As I looked up, I saw a disheveled man with an oversized jacket standing at the corner.

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
