Sunday March 12, 2017-Celebrating International Women’s Day

This lunch was  dedicated to some  very special women who have shown so much kindness, strength, courage, support, friendship, empowerment, generosity, love and dedication over the years at our team thought it would only be fitting to celebrate with in their honor at our   second annual Don of all Trades International Women’s Day Lunch!

We received  generous donations of non perishable food items, women’s gift sets, hand creams and various baby items  that was  donated to Herizon HouseWe helped donate over 147 items at this event to help the women and their children  fleeing abuse and violence through the wonderful efforts of Herizon House.

Mother’s  Day Gifts Brighten Holiday for Women In  Shelters

Wednesday May 10, 2017- Angels Who Gave from their Heart!

This past Mother’s Day, we  reconnected our love for our moms and our respect for all women by assembling a very special project initiated by the Don of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services of Durham Region.  Our team  runs “The Helping Hands Building Trees of Hope Project”,   a program that we created which turns donations into supports for women in abusive relationships.

We felt that there was  no better day this year to celebrate our moms by recognizing the value of all women and making a big difference for a victim of domestic violence.

Photo: 11 very special and meaningful gift bags to help send a heartfelt message to women in shelters that there are people in the community that care and that there is always Hope.

A total of 11 Mother’s Day Gift Bags would be donated with the help of some wonderful angels who gave from their heart. Special items that were donated to add to these very special and meaningful gift bags ranged from   journals, adult coloring books, pencil crayons,  chocolates, mini manicure sets, Loofah, Timmy’s Cards, wrap, bows, gift bags, hand creams, jewelry, bath salts, body care products, hand soaps, candles and coffee. Our collections started in early April and all bags were assembled, completed and donated on Wednesday, May 10. Just in time for Mother’s Day. We would also like to mention that  everyone who made a contribution also added a new Helping Hand to our Third Tree Of Hope which we wish to complete by December 2017!

Mother’s Day Gifts Brighten Holiday For Women In Shelters

On Mother’s Day, we celebrate our mothers, the woman  like no other. She gave us life, nurtured us, taught us, dressed us, fought for us, held us, shouted at us, kissed us, but most importantly loved us unconditionally.

There are not enough words we can say to describe  how important our mothers are to us, and what a powerful influence she continues to be to us… 

In the middle of all the celebrations, it’s important to remember that so many mothers will spend this special day experiencing abuse or taking refuge in shelters.  On any given night in Canada, 3,491 women and their 2,724 children  are forced to sleep in an emergency shelter to escape domestic violence. Every night, about 300 women and their children  are turned away because the shelters are full.

Violence against mothers impacts children too. The effects are persistent and far- reaching. Children who witness domestic abuse can experience learning challenges as well as behavioral and mental health issues that can extend long into adulthood. Studies show that these children can be more likely to repeat the cycle, growing up to become victims or abusers themselves.

This Mother’s Day, we can reconnect our love for our moms and our respect for all women by joining or replicating a program initiated by the Don of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services of Durham Region.  Our team  runs “The Helping Hands Building Trees of Hope Project”  a program that we created that turns donations into supports for women in abusive relationships through the wonderful efforts of Herizon House Women’s Shelter.

We felt that there was  no better day this year to celebrate our moms by recognizing the value of all women and making a big difference for a victim of domestic violence.

Mother’s Day Gifts Brighten Holiday For Women In Shelters!

We reached out to the community once again for their support  and asked for their assistance to help us celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday May 14, 2017 by donating items along with our own to put together in  special gift bags that would be donated to the women at Herizon House Women’s Shelter.

 

Angels Who Gave From Their Heart 

A total of 11 Mother’s Day Gift Bags would be donated with the help of some wonderful angels who gave from their heart. Special items that were donated to add to these very special and meaningful gift bags ranged from   journals, adult coloring books, pencil crayons,  chocolates, mini manicure sets, Loofah, Timmy’s Cards, wrap, bows, gift bags, hand creams, jewelry, bath salts, body care products, hand soaps, candles and coffee.

Our collection deadline started April 3-May 7, 2017. All gift bags were donated on Wednesday 10, just in time for Mother’s Day.

We would also like to mention that  everyone who made a contribution also added a new Helping Hand to our Third Tree Of Hope which we wish to complete by December 2017!

What Mothers Really Want for Mother’s Day This Year

 

mothers day

 We’re  asking moms all over Canada to send in their pictures and tell us what they TRULY want for Mother’s Day this year. If you would like to participate, please email us at: info@donofalltrades.ca. or leave a reply below.

Gift Ideas for Mothers Day-What Moms really want this year for Mother’s Day

You go through this EVERY year, searching for that perfect gift for mom that will sum up all the reasons why she is the BEST Mom ever!  Should you give  mom flowers or chocolates or soaps or jewelry or slippers or…………???  Now we’re sure all moms appreciate anything they receive or any acts of kindness they’re given. Why make it so complicated?

Have you ever considered the thought of actually asking  mom what she really wants for Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 10 this year?

Mothers are the rock that hold  foundations together. They sacrifice their life  to make the  lives of the one’s they hold close in their hearts better. From  taking us to school to cheering us at hockey to being our mentors and guides.  The one holiday, dedicated to moms  doesn’t  really feel like it’s enough to show our thanks for everything she has done for us.

You can shower mom with gifts and treat her to a fancy dinner but  sometimes moms just  want the basic gifts that money can’t buy.

They want  a break with the house cleaning and laundry,  being able to sleep in (past 6:30am) but what really matters most to a mom is to be able to spend quality time with her children. And let’s not pretend that ALONE time isn’t  just as important as well.

Now if not getting selfie pics with their kids posted on popular social media sites  or watching the same Minions video over and over again to the point they have memorized every line, our hope is that all mothers can  incorporate  some  of these requests in for a day dedicated to them and through the entire year.

 

We’re  asking moms all over Canada to send in their pictures and tell us what they TRULY want for Mother’s Day this year. If you would like to participate, please email us at: info@donofalltrades.ca or leave a reply below.

 

Please note: All entries must be received no later than May 8, 2015 and you can see your posts on the following links below.
