CleanKits
The Clean Kits project thinks differently about donations. By bundling basic toiletry products, and a little bit more, a *hand-made face cloth* and a *note of affirmation*, wrapped up in a brown paper bag, distribution and receipt of this ‘care package’ expresses affirmation of the recipient’s worth and value.

Our Stories, Their Stories
We are gathering stories about coming
to Canada, being Canadian, places in Canada and times in Canadian history.
We are trying to make sure we get stories from or about every province and territory and from as many cultures as possible. All stories come from Canadian seniors and honour them. The sales of these books will raise money to help Vulnerable seniors in Canada and around the world.
