Community outreach programs—quarterly and every second month (on average)! The basic idea is to make giving easy; to provide a space for basic conversation and action around the sad and problematic situations in our society, in our neighboring communities, that we often turn a blind eye to.

Typically, I ask for basic toiletries, warm gloves, hats and clean socks and underwear, easy no prep snacks and treats. Including ‘ Holiday Stockings’ where a stocking is provided from Plush for you to fill, ‘Project Purse’ where I ask you to fill an old purse with similar items to be distributed to women for Valentines Day, and ‘Duffels for Dudes’ where I ask you to fill a backpack or more masculine or gender-neutral reusable pack of some sort, with similar items. These are gifted to the marginalized people in our nearby communities in hopes of creating connection and hopefully spreading a little love and joy.

About Our Current Project

duffles for dudes

Thisis an annual initiative similar to xmas stockings and project purse, but aimed to men in honour and recognition of mens mental health and addiction challenges.


Collecting for the month of June, looking for backpacks or reusable cloth bags filled with toiletries and personal hygiene items, mens tees, socks and undies, no prep snacks, wipes, masks, sanitizer, lip balms, etc. Drop your filled purses off and I will distribute to men residing on the streets of the dtes this summer.

With much gratitude…xo

thank you for your generosity and contribution…

the most recent Project Purse and Christmas stockings were major successes, allowing humble gifts to residents of the downtown eastside on Valentines and Christmas. If you were a part of this amazing community effort, thank you so very much!
