Are you looking for some creative ways to make a difference? Besides volunteering your time or donating goods to Made by Momma, we’ve found other ways you can help support us and the work we do!
You may not realize this, but Made by Momma is run entirely by volunteers and we do not receive any government funding to support our work. The money needed for our operating expenses comes from our own fundraising initiatives AND from people just like YOU! Check out some of the ways below that you can help us help more mommas and families with our services.
We’ve partnered with SkipTheDepot!
What is SkipTheDepot? A door-to-door bottle collection service that makes refundable recycling and fundraising easier than 1,2,3
SkipTheDepot will allow everyone to donate directly to our organization with ease. Spread the word by sharing our SkipTheDepot posts on social media!
Did you know that you can now use your power for a good cause?
Our Canadian penny is becoming extinct! Which is the perfect time for our PENNY DRIVE! Anyone that is involved with a grassroots charity knows that EVERY PENNY COUNTS…and we need all the pennies we can get for our renovation, our programs and to continue helping families in our community! Pennies can be brought to our Volunteer Resource Centre! Take a picture – we’d love to see you dropping in your pennies! THANK YOU!!
EVERY penny counts!
Some ideas suggested to us include:
~ Check with your employer – did you know a lot of companies will donate cash to the charity for the hours
~ Have a community garage sale and donate the revenue to Made by Momma
~ Mmmm – put on a bake sale or lemonade stand
~ Collect donated items and create an online auction
~ Host a home party (tupperware, candles, food, jewelry etc) and donate the proceeds or free products to Made by Momma.
~ Have a toonie kids birthday party (guests bring a toonie – the birthday child keeps a loonie and the other loonie is donated! )
~ Host a “Baby Shower” – where guests bring donations for the mothers we help – diapers, wipes, baby clothes, formula etc.
~ Enter Made by Momma into local or national contests for support, prizes or recognition.
~ Start a Food Drive at work or with your friends! Collect new/unopened baking ingredients (baking powder, salt, sugar, flour, etc) and GladWare storage containers, Extra-Large Ziplock Freezer bags for us to use to prepare/package meals for families.
~ Host a “Cook-Off” or a “Bake-Off” with your friends or co-workers and help us fill our freezer with healthy homemade meals & baking!
~ Charity Run – support Made by Momma by nominating us as your charity of choice in upcoming runs & races!
~ Host a luncheon or a dinner party in honour of Made by Momma and ask your friends to bring donations to support one of our programs!
We also welcome any suggestions for holding your own fundraiser on behalf of Made by Momma and are happy to partner with you and/or supply brochures and signage if needed. We really cannot do the volunteer work that we do without your help. THANK YOU!
