The Shoe Box Project 2015
The Shoe Box Project 2015 The Shoe Box Project is an amazing charity that collects and distributes gifts in the form of shoeboxes to women in shelters. Each shoebox is filled with items valued at $50 that a woman would enjoy but would not splurge on for herself in difficult times. These shoeboxes brighten the holiday season and let the women know they are special and not forgotten. Each box contains different female-friendly items such as beauty and personal hygiene products, specialty teas, mitts, socks, perfume, chocolate and gift cards. Founded in 2011 by four sisters-in-law: Caroline Mulroney Lapham and Jessica, Vanessa and Katy Mulroney, the charity initiative now runs in many cities across Canada and the US, including Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver and Halifax. Last year, thanks to the generosity of countless people in December 2014, they delivered gifts to over 17,000 women using 270 shelters and outreach programs in 72 communities! They also collect and deliver hundreds of shoeboxes in honour of other occasions such as Mother’s Day and Nelson Mandela Day. The following pictures were taken at a wrapping party, where donations and sponsorship from corporation are all gathered and ready to be boxed and wrapped up. Tri […]
Kathy & Victor | Toronto Wedding
Kathy & Victor | Toronto Wedding Family and friends from Poland and Ecuador came all the way to Toronto to celebrate the union of Kathy & Victor. Even the rain couldn’t stop all the warm and joyful spirit of this happy bunch. As soon as we walked in the door, the bride insisted to show us all the outfits made by her cousin. All the girls wanted to be a bridesmaid after seeing the beautiful blush pink dresses. Kathy told us that her cousin flew in town from Poland a few days prior. Her cousin made all her bridesmaid’s dresses, her mother’s stunning outfit and altered her beautiful wedding dress. Self-proclaimed shoe-addict, Kathy was also very excited to wear her brand new Christian Louboutin shoes (who wouldn’t) for this special day. But what we loved the most, was the breathtaking work from her hairstylist, who integrated beautiful flowers to her updo. Congratulation again to Kathy & Victor!

Feed Tomorrow 2015
Feed Tomorrow 2015 On October 21st, I joined the Toronto Foundation For Student Success (TFSS) again this year to celebrate their 11th annual Feed Tomorrow week. The day started early at St. Lawrence Market in downtown Toronto, where a large cheque of $545,000 donated from the Breakfast Clubs of Canada was presented to the TFSS program. We then all hopped on the School Bus Tour that took us to Ryerson Community School, First Nations School of Toronto and Dundas Junior Public School to show us the nutritional program in each establishment. We met with community volunteers and children, and learn first-hand about the need these programs address. Feed Tomorrow week is here to raise awareness and collect pledges to help feed Toronto’s students, address issues of poverty, hunger, poor nutrition and their effect on kid’s education and growth. With the support from Toronto City Council, hundreds of volunteers, supporters and very generous sponsors, Feed Tomorrow week is the largest awareness campaign of its kind for student hunger and nutrition programs. The TFSS supports 160,000 nutritious meals every school day. These meals are provided through over 700 Student Nutrition Programs, primary school-based, where students eat a healthy breakfast, lunch or a […]
