Shipping - 2022

Six girls stand behind table of delivered fabric

We are so lucky that there are many people who like to donate goods for us to ship! 

Yes, it is a lot of work, but goodness, just look in any distribution album to see the happy faces of the recipients!   

Actually, you may notice that some seem rather straight-faced, right?  Well, that is due to being entirely overwhelmed and also, culturally-speaking, it is considered rude to smile for such a serious event.  It takes some prompting to get most to smile!   

When the timing is right (meaning we have the funds, the space, and the time), a collection starts.  Countless hours are put into getting things ready before goods can leave Ontario.  Then, there is the 2 month voyage, before the distribution can take place. And, yes, it is a busy occasion on the receiving end, also!


  • Cell phones and laptops remain the absolute most NEEDED items.  
  • Always contact Carol first before dropping off anything, please.
  • Financial allocations to the shipping fund are always appreciated!
