The festive season is fast approaching! Now, as always, at Moorelands Kids we’re teaching our participants about being fair and how each of us can make the world a better place by our words and actions…
Things Get ‘Fairly’ Goopy at BLAST!
The kids at BLAST Gateway got their hands dirty together as they scraped, scooped, and carved their Halloween pumpkins! While the goop might have been gross, it reminds us that when we take turns and share the load (or the pumpkin guts!), it lightens the load for everyone! One of the qualities of a leader that we teach at Moorelands Kids is that they demonstrate FAIRNESS. Whether it’s scooping out a pumpkin, or deciding on how it will be carved; when you make decisions in a fair way, take turns, and keep your mind open to different opinions, you can help make the world a more peaceful place. The students at BLAST have learned this through the program…and their pumpkins’ crazy faces are the proof!
Christmas Sharing Update!
We are thrilled to share that all 243 Toronto families in our Christmas Sharing program have been adopted! That equates to over 600 children who get to celebrate the holidays with cheer, thanks to the gifts and grocery cards donated by thoughtful and caring people! THANK YOU!
Are you still looking for ways to help out? Sign up to sponsor a Mom and a newborn-in-need this Christmas. Every year, Moorelands Kids aims to provide up to 250 new mothers with a gift to welcome their baby into the world. You can help us provide supplies to care for their newborn in the first few vulnerable months of their lives. Help create a happy holiday for our recipients by donating the value of a Baby Bundle!

Giving Tuesday is Coming!
On November 27th you have the opportunity for your donation to DOUBLE its impact in a child’s life. In 2019, we’re piloting project DIVE at our subsidized overnight Moorelands Camp; a two-week program for those kids that demonstrate leadership ability, a desire to grow and a willingness to apply the Moorelands Kids’ Leadership Habits & Qualities.
PLEASE DONATE to the Matching Weeks Challenge on Giving Tuesday. ALL gifts will be matched up to $65,000! Any amount you chose to donate will be matched will and help us reach our goal of sending 55 kids to camp for two weeks! Mark it in your calendars and come back to donate on November 27th!
