You've heard it here a few times now, & it's something that I will always stand by.
I'm completely amazed at the amount of donations for @sickkidstoronto kiddos & their families at @rmhctoronto!
I'd say the biggest donation I've done so far was for the crib fish tanks in the NICU & the rest of the hospital, but this.... 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙨 𝙟𝙪𝙨𝙩 𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙖𝙘𝙪𝙡𝙖𝙧.
The way this community & my community have come together to step up for families at The House literally leaves me at a loss for words.
I've written & rewritten this caption a few times now, because I truly can't put down how thankful & in awe I am that these goodies that have gone out.
••• I want to thank every person who is on this page for being here, for being part of this community, for engaging, liking, sharing, commenting, messaging, even just scrolling. You allow me to take my experiences & my pain, & turn it into something brilliant & so special.
Thank you for trusting me to be the in-between for RMHC & SickKids. I know it takes a lot of trust & transparency, & I will forever honour the relationship we have made here.
❤️ We did it! We've successfully brought holiday magic to the Ronald McDonald House ✨
T H A N K Y O U to every single person who contributed to this massive haul of goodies for the kiddos receiving treatment at Credit Valley Hospital.
These donations for the strongest, bravest kids young & old are going to put so many smiles on so many faces after an unimaginable time.
Anything that could be done to bring some joy, I was up for the challenge, & you all came through hard!
T E N F U L L bags & a box were dropped off!
❤️💛 What a day. My heart is full.
(Which is why I don't mind posting the pic of me absolutely cheesing 😁😂 lol!!!)
Thank you thank you thank you!
When our Home away from Home calls out for help, we're the first ones to answer!
Forever grateful & thankful to the House & all of the Donors who kept our family close when our son was at SickKids. We grabbed snacks from the pantry almost daily, & if it weren't for the amazing packed lunches, there definitely would have been days that I did not eat.
So a huge thank you to everyone who donated to help fill the pantry at RMHC & ensure that families can have a treat, a snack, or even a quick meal on their way to or from the hospital.
This is an initiative that is on-going & something that will be continued whenever the need is necessary!
This time around, we were able to make two separate donations!
Mother's Day 2022 we were able to put together gift bags for the Mama's & Caregivers at the SickKids NICU!
We had some amazing donations from the community & small businesses!
A heartfelt & huge thank you to everyone who contributed & helped us put a smile on some faces during this year's Mother's Day!
May 9, 2021, Beyond the Beads collaborated with loveloladaisy to donate our Beyond the Boxes gift boxes for Mamas at RMHC Toronto for Mother's Day!
Each box was filled with over $300 of goodies from local makers, small shops, & people in our communities, that support our mission of Mamas supporting Mamas, & indulgent gifts that we would have loved to have while we were living at The House!
In addition to each Beyond the Box, we sponsored & hosted the Mother's Day Dinner on the same day!
Professional Chefs prepared & catered a steak dinner with tiramisu that was dropped off at every doorway, to celebrate Mamas & families who deserve it the most during these trying times.
T H A N K Y O U to everyone who donated & contributed to both the Beyond the Boxes & our Mother's Day Dinner fundraiser! Like the Mamas at RMHC, we are so thankful for you & this amazing Beyond the Beads Community!
