****Holiday Bags 2020 ****

We have been shaking things up a bit this year (pun intended, keep reading for the ah-ha moment) in bringing you not one, but two Holiday Bags this year. Not only have we added a second option, but we’ve also added a charity component to the bags. This year $0.75 from ever bag sold will be divided between each of the below charities:

HCCI – Hamilton Center for Civic Inclusion 
The HCCI is focused on civic inclusion, community engagement and addressing issues of discrimination to help mobilize all Hamiltonians to create an inclusive and welcoming city. 

The Space
The Space is a local youth-led youth centre which stands for Sharing Power And Centering Experiences. Within The Space, there are two programs the proceeds from this year’s Holiday Bag will go towards. These programs are Kaleidoscope which is a 2S-LGBTQIA+ weekly circle that builds space for care and voices of multiple marginalized youth. The second is OQRA, the only program in Hamilton that focuses on queer and trans BIPOC youth. This informal support group for QTBIPOC youth helps its members connect with other racialized 2S-LGBTQIA in an empowering community setting. 

HRIC – Hamilton Regional Indian Center
The HRIC is creating change that empowers Urban Aboriginal People through providing tools to achieve a balanced and holistic lifestyle. 

The Holiday Bags can be pre-ordered from November 16-30. There are a limited number available of each bag. During this time, Active Members will get 2x the loyalty points on every bag purchased. All bags will be available for pick up as of December 8. 



The Local Mixologist Holiday Bag – $39.99 + tax 
You may or may not have noticed the growing shelf of non-alcohol drinks and locally crafted cocktail ingredients at our co+op. Everything from bitters to near beer and much, much more. The growing popularity of these items in our store inspired us to create a Holiday Bag full of local craft goodies.
