Stationery for Kids

Kids need school supplies

Sharing is caring! – except for kids in times of COVID. With all the new distancing rules and regulations, even things like communal stationery are feeling the sting. Kids are not supposed to be sharing things like pencils, markers, erasers – you name it! For most students, those items are staples on the annual back to school shopping list, but for those less fortunate, it’s an added expense that they can’t afford to dish out.

Nellie’s is a shelter for women and children experiencing abuse, violence, poverty and homelessness. Before COVID, Nellie’s would provide communal stationery for the families to use, but now, the moms are doing a lot more homeschooling, and everyone needs their own items.

How you can help

We’re pooling funds to help give these moms a stockpile of stationery for their kids to use. Let’s get kids the supplies they need so they can channel their inner Einstein with ease.

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.
