Support Ashley in her time of healing

This Go Fund Me was created in support of our dear friend Ashley. On March 10th 2020, Ashley’s daughter Amari passed away in her sleep and we wished to donate this money as a gift to support her in her healing process. 

However, after announcing this to Ashley, she has asked us to change this donation drive to a fundraiser, as she believes this is the very best way for her to receive the proper healing and support. Ashley has chosen 4 causes that speak to her and her story.  Ashley admires what each and every one of these organizations does for our communities and feels it’s important to provide these organizations with support to keep going (especially during this time). 

Ashley is asking for a $10 dollar minimum, towards whichever charity resonates with you personally, please specify in comments when donating. Ashley believes that without these organizations it would be impossible for our children, women and families to thrive.

Recipients of this donation drive will be: 

1) Amari's Adoption 

https://amarisadoption.com/donate/

Amari’s guides families before, during and after adoption while focusing on meeting the needs of the diverse children and clients we serve. We provide professional, ethical, compassionate, personal, and effective support services for families of all shapes and sizes. We facilitate domestic adoption and assist with international adoption.


2) Canadian Women's Foundation 

https://canadianwomen.org/our-work/stories/#

 The Canadian Women’s Foundation is Canada’s public foundation for diverse women and girls.

We focus on women and girls because they face distinct barriers that require distinct solutions and because gender equality improves economic and social conditions for everyone.

 
 3) PACE Kids

https://pacekids.ca/

Pacekids works hard to create an inclusive environment that wraps a continuum of support around each child we serve because, as they say, it takes a village. From educating and empowering caregivers to having one-on-one in-classroom assistance, or supporting families to as they work to secure equipment funding or begin the transition into the public education system, Pacekids is here to help

 
4) Unique Creations drive for Nancy

Nancy is an older lady living in low-income housing and has been taking care of her ill husband for quite some time, and now has fallen into health issues herself. Uniq Creations Studio is looking for the community to raise $800 to be able to give to the landlord for one month's rent for Nancy.
