      What's New — Our Charities

      Supporting Girls Education

      When I first started Moving Mountains it felt impossible to choose only one place to direct our donations. I felt pulled in so many directions for causes that spoke to my heart. I decided, instead of choosing one charity to focus on, that I would rotate organizations every few months and spread some good all around. It has worked well for us and supporting organizations big and small has been wonderful. But, as Moving Mountains has changed over these last 3 years, so has my understanding and thoughts on the issues facing women and girls around the globe. I am honoured to have partnered with so many worthy organizations over the years and contributed over $4800 to the work they are doing. However, I have felt my heart calling me a certain direction and I have decided to follow it.

      As of now, Moving Mountains will be focussing on supporting the education of girls in developing countries. We know that when girls are given access to education they are given the power to transform their families, communities, countries, and the world. The longer girls stay in school, the higher their incomes, the less likely they will be forced into childhood marriages, the more opportunity they have for a rewarding future, and so much more. When we empower women and girls with education we see lasting impacts and meaningful improvements not just for the individual, but entire communities. 

      We have chosen a partner organization to make this contribution impactful and moving forward, for every piece sold, we will be supporting education for girls in developing countries. 

      Please reach out if you have any questions about our mission! We are excited to see what the future holds for Moving Mountains and are eager to start on this new path with you!

      New Charity Announcement: Ottawa Food Bank

      In light of everything happening in the world right now as a result of Covid-19, we have decided to make a small shift in our priorities here at Moving Mountains. Although our mission and values will remain: to inspire and empower women and girls, we have decided to temporarily change where we direct our donations. 

      Usually we donate $5 from every piece sold to organizations supporting women and girls, but right now we believe our contributions are needed for a different cause: helping to feed our vulnerable community members. In light of this, we will be directing all of our donations to the Ottawa Food Bank until further notice. 

      Here in our home city, Ottawa, and around the world we are seeing an increased demand at food banks. We hope to do our small part to contribute to the work they are doing!

      If you or someone you know is hungry and in need of a little help, please visit www.ottawafoodbank.ca/get-help/ to find the community food program that’s closest to you. 

      If you need a little piece of inspiration for you or someone you love, please know that we are still here for you! We are packaging orders with clean hands and lots of love, while maintaining social distancing from our home office. Our free shipping is sent by regular mail and requires no trip to the post office! 

      Stay safe and take care of one another, friends!

      New Charity Announcement: MATCH International Women's Fund

      We are thrilled to announce that starting June 1st we will be directing our donations to MATCH International Women's Fund!

      MATCH international women’s fund is working at the intersection of women’s rights and innovation. They fund grassroots women’s rights organizations that are holding ground and breaking ground for women’s rights. They are committed to sharing their stories as they dismantle barriers, challenge perceptions, and find solutions to the world’s biggest problems.

      They are all about homegrown solutions to the issues that women, girls, and trans* people face. Like us, they dream of a world where there are more solutions than there are barriers.
       
      How do they do it? (That’s where we come in.) They channel donations directly to the brave women, girls, and trans* folks working at the grassroots level to implement the solutions. This means supporting the girls boxing in the slums of Nairobi, the underground network of LGBT folks in Kampala, and the women taking hospitals to task in Xalapa. 

      The MATCH International Women’s Fund gives everyone the opportunity to use their power for good in this lifetime. Women, girls, and trans* people at the grassroots will lead movements for transformative change: dismantling barriers, changing systems, challenging perceptions, and transforming society.

       

      Gifts of Hope this Holiday Season

      Gifts of Hope this Holiday Season

      We are getting into the Holiday spirt here at Moving Mountains and are thrilled to announce where our donations are currently going! For every piece sold we will be putting $5 towards purchasing from the Plan Canada Gifts of Hope Program. Specifically we have chosen to contribute to "The Moms Shop" which supports female entrepreneurship. 

      What will you see when you enter the mom shop? You’ll see entrepreneurial women carving out their own path and designing their own future. You’ll see mothers who are able to look after their families and keep their children nourished, healthy and in school.

      The mom shop is in full swing in Peru and Pakistan, where mothers are carving out their own paths to a better future and better lives for their families. In Peru, the project is helping dozens of mothers weave their way to change. Fifty mothers received business training covering everything from artisan skills, self-esteem, teamwork, and communication to financial literacy, helping the women learn how to better market and sell their products.

      The Mom Shop is one of Plan Canada's matched gifts! This means our donation will be matched with a donation by a government, foundation or organizational partner, giving more women the gift of hope, helping more families live better lives, and transforming more communities. This gift is matched 4:1, so each $75 contribution will be turned into $375! 

      This gift includes vocational training courses coupled with numeracy and financial literacy. It offers Village Savings and Loans programs that help women work together to create small business opportunities like making honey, peanut butter, clothing or soap – initiatives that are feeding families and providing an income. 

      Plan Canada believes that when girls are educated, healthy and empowered, they can lift themselves and everyone around them out of poverty.
