momstown is pleased to announced a new partnership with the Canadian Red Cross. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for the Canadian Disaster Relief Fund which is used to help the Red Cross respond to disasters in Canada, such as house fires or floods. The Red Cross helps more than 20,000 Canadians affected by disaster each year, ensuring they have shelter, food and basic necessities.
As part of our new partnership, the Canadian Red Cross will be organizing a series of workshops for our chapters across the country. These workshops will focus on: how to prepare your family for disasters; water safety for children; and first aid/CPR courses that focus on care for children and infants.
momstown is working with the Red Cross because we are focused on giving back to all communities in Canada. It’s so important for momstown to continue to support families in need and to help teach all our children about the power of giving.
Want to help momstown make a difference? You can help us reach our goal to donate $5,000 to the Red Cross by making a donation here. On Twitter use our #RedCrossMomstown hashtag to share the support.
How does the Canadian Red Cross help regular Canadian families (who are all real people like our momstown moms)?
1. Disaster Management Relief - Like the Slave Lake fires or flooding in Winnipeg this year
2. First Aid & CPR- CPR training our members received in Burlington
4. Appeals - As issues come up around the world, the Red Cross is ready to pitch in and aid whenever needed, just like our communities do
5. International Operations - Sending brave Canadians to help across the world
Thank you for your support.
