Our Charity

In support of keeping families in a warm, safe place this winter, we have set-up a “Pay-as-you-can” registration system with a portion of proceeds going to The Red Door Family Shelters, so be generous if you can!

 

Our Speakers

Hear from experts in sustainability, “Shopping Local” and other fascinating topics for the “woke” shopper. We look forward to hearing from our speakers, Marie Fraser and Danielle Reid.

 

Our “Shop Local” speaker, Marie Fraser, founded  Shop Local Ontario in April 2020 as a response to the economic hardship experienced by small Ontario Businesses resulting from COVID-19. Shop Local started as an online farmer’s market, but has grown to a place where small businesses can thrive, and customers can easily support local production.

 

Our “Sustainability” expert, Danielle Reid, MSc, is the Sustainability Coordinator for Longo’s where she has been working diligently to set into motion the company’s initiative to fuel happier healthier lives with a new sustainability strategy based on three key elements: environmental stewardship, responsible sourcing and healthy, happy people.
