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 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.
UPDATE*** THE LOCAL MIXOLOGIST BAG IS SOLD OUT AS OF NOV.28TH.
As 2020 has been a year of pivoting, adapting and fortifying local businesses we are so excited to have created these two limited quantity Holiday Bags with you in mind. We are pleased to have you pre order, pre pay and pick up using our contact-less method of parking and texting us ( 905-961-2659) for a safe way of getting these wonderful gifts out to you. Active Members are welcome to add on any of these to their pick up or delivery order too! It would be our delight to add any items to these bags or to create a bag for any price point using our new screen-printed organic fair trade cotton totes which retail for $7.99! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to create your own. Thank you for choosing to support local, keeping our local economy supported and for choosing to #shopthecoop. We are grateful. Healthy Holiday’s Hamilton.
