Angela recently hosted a pot luck lunch which was attended by volunteers, corporate supporters and a representative from Canada Food for Children. This was a time to brainstorm and share ideas. We need help to sustain  our rapid growth! The segment aired by CTV was so successful that  we are inundated with  requests for milk bags and mats drop-off locations as well as  directions for starting new weaving groups. Our supporters at Celestica have offered to help us to put a locations map on the website. In the mean time, will anyone accepting boxes of bags  in Ontario post it on our Facebook page. In July, we will update our little site to make it more efficient.

Purolator Canada is now sending us used courier envelopes. Strong, waterproof  we are beginning to incorporate them into making the mattresses. Soon we will let you know how to use them.

Have a safe and wonderful summer!
