The journey into motherhood is one of the most transformative experiences a woman can embark upon.
As we have been spending more time cooped up inside lately, many of us are finding ourselves in front of screens to pass the time. Whether it’s the computer, smart-phone or television, this increase in screen time means an increase in our exposure to advertisements. I’ve found it incredibly interesting and inspiring to watch brands pivot their marketing strategies to act in a socially responsible way and support frontline workers. Whether it’s through monetary donations, or by lending their facilities and resources – every little bit helps to relieve the burden!
An amazing example of this is seen in Kia’s Power To Give initiative. Kia Canada has partnered with Food Banks Canada, which are facing an unprecedented need amid the current global pandemic, to support hunger relief efforts across the country. They have pledged $200,000 to Food Banks Canada in order to support the good work they do in the community and are providing vehicles to help enable local food banks and their dedicated teams to continue to serve vulnerable Canadians who are experiencing food insecurity.
Through this initiative, Kia’s commitment to supporting Canadians through this challenging time is clear, and their response enables Canada’s leading hunger relief organizations to do what they do best – feed Canadians in need. This is just one great example of the many ways organizations are stepping their support efforts across Canada, and these initiatives remind us how we can all come together to support one another during this pandemic. If you can spare anything at all, please donate to your local food bank through Food Banks Canada here!
On June 27, Canadian Multiculturalism Day honours the many cultural communities that help build a strong and vibrant Canadian society. Take this opportunity to celebrate the cultural diversity that enriches us collectively and reaffirm your commitment to equity, inclusion, and mutual respect. Here are some resources to introduce your children to this concept.
Kids often like to play in an environment that feels open and allows them to wander. With parent supervision, the outdoors can be a great place for safe and mindful play. Join them in exploring nature.
It wouldn’t be summer without a chance to hike through BC's most beautiful trails. The WILD Outside team hikes throughout the year, whether that’s under Douglas Firs at Lighthouse Park or climbing Mt. Seymour for a breathtaking view of Vancouver.
