Each month, browseYYC will feature a local "charity of the month"! For every business that joins us as a seller that month, the non-profit will receive $10, plus, 5% of profits for the month. In addition, shoppers will have the option to make an additional donation in the checkout process.
June Charity of the Month: Starlings Community
Children do not get a choice in the kind of home environment they are raised in. But as a community, we have a choice in the kind of community environment that supports them.
Starlings Community's plan is to increase the community's capacity to meet children impacted by a parent's addiction (and other adverse childhood experiences) where they are at -- and support their resilience, well-being and healing. Visit Starlings Website
May Charity of the Month: Made by Momma YYC
Made by Momma is a grassroots non-profit organization, and registered Canadian charity, located in Calgary. We help families facing situations of adversity and crisis by providing healthy prepared meals, wholesome baked goods, baby essentials, children’s items, supportive in-home visitors, and other services to allow mothers the time they need to rest, recover and focus on their families and their health. Because we are volunteer-run, our operating costs are kept low, and the effectiveness of donated dollars/ items very high. Visit Website
