We're SO proud to announce that Jillian Harris' "Santa Jilly's Christmas in June" giveaway and fundraiser raised $233,170 CAD. We were selected to participate as one of Jillian's "Favourite Things", and we contributed two 14" Lux Hybrid mattresses for donors to buy entries for. Many other brands took part, with over $35,000 contributed!
Here's one winner Debbie, with her Queen size!
This incredible event will benefit so many families across Canada. We are proud to know that the funds raised will continue to support Canadian mothers and caregivers in crisis by providing ongoing support to individuals and families facing various poverty-related struggles within our community, and they will also be used to help support Indigenous mamas, new-Canadians, immigrants, and refugees who are utilizing their services.
The funds will also help support immediate financial relief for those most vulnerable, as well as mental health resources. In addition, Mamas for Mamas’ Fill The Gap Dental Program budget has doubled this year to support the healthcare of mamas and families in need.
We'd also like to give a HUGE THANK YOU to Trellis Org., who saved the day by digitally hosting the event within an hour of our request.
