Help Spread the #JoyOfWarmth and Feed a Child in Need

The thought of not being able to provide warm clothes for my children in the winter is heartbreaking. What’s even more heartbreaking is it’s not as uncommon as we might think. That’s where the #JoyOfWarmth comes into play.

Recently Quaker Canada did a study and discovered that,

“more than one in five Canadian parents (21%) have struggled financially themselves to ensure their child is appropriately dressed for winter. ” *

Fortunately, the Quaker® brand has taken action and is working with Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada to provide new winter coats to children from families in need and warm them from the outside.

A warm coat can provide the happiness, comfort, ability to play outside, health and a feeling of trust that kids need.

This is why spreading the #JoyOfWarmth this winter is so important, and it’s really easy for you to help!

How Can I get Involved? 

As we lead into winter, for the month of November when you share the hashtag #JoyOfWarmth and tag @QuakerCanada on your public Facebook, Twitter or Instagram profile, Quaker will provide a bowl of warm oatmeal to a child in-need at Boys and Girls Club locations across the country, to a maximum of 100,000 bowls.

It’s that easy! You just fed a child in need.

*Quaker Canada Survey Methodology: 
From September 17th to September 18th, 2018 an online survey of 1,515 randomly selected Canadian adults (907 of whom are parents) who are Maru Voice Canada panelists was executed by Maru/Blue. For comparison purposes, a probability sample of this size has an estimated margin of error (which measures sampling variability) of +/- 2.5%, 19 times out of 20. The results have been weighted by education, age, gender and region (and in Quebec, language) to match the population, according to Census data. This is to ensure the sample is representative of the entire adult population of Canada. Discrepancies in or between totals are due to rounding.

  • It’s been six years since we lost our good friend, to me he was very much like a brother. Genuine, caring, funny, and such a family guy. This weekend we took time to remember. My heart feels heavy, I’ve never been good with words during times of grief but this weekend encouraged me that lots of words aren’t always needed. Our actions and the intentional moments mean so much. #domliveson
  • He makes me smile, the real full mouth all the teeth smile.

Thanks again @thepieshoppe & @sumacridgewine for having us come create the other night. That’s my kinda date night. Thanks for the snap @gracefullyglamblog
  • It's a crazy thing what can happen when you start doing the things you love but also might scare you. I've been creating content on this space for five years as this past year has presented some of the most incredible opportunities. This latest one with @coquitlamcentre has been so fun! Excited to share that I am their next and final 'Girl In Focus' -- head over to their feed to see the first video that was created.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Also, sending a big kiss out there for all of you, for being encouraging, inspiring and simply for just being you. If there's something on your heart that you have been wanting to start, but you feel like you don't know how.. maybe you are scared.. maybe you are worried of judgement. Trust me, it's worth putting all that aside and just trying. Just starting. Because in all honesty, starting is always the hardest part.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
PS my outfit is from @rw_co, shoes @callitspring at @coquitlamcentre — I couldn’t leave without them! #girlinfocus #workingit #stylebyCQC
  • Who snacks more, you or the kids?
.
I used to think it was the kids, but since getting Invisalign I've realized more and more how much I love snacking, as I am willing to take my liners in and out every time. #worthit

A new snack I've been trying out from @patiencefruitco are their Active Blends, my favourite blend being the Seasalt & Pepper. Check out my stories to see all three flavours. *sponsored #patiencefruitco
  • We donut want to leave @pacificsands today, but it’s time to roll out.

  • I opened up the new My Only Bottle Loop from @sodastreamcanada and the girls were PUMPED. Sophie suggested bringing our SodaStream FIZZI to school so that she can make sparkling water there (see stories) and I suggested that we make it at home in her new My Only Bottle Loop and she can bring it with her. The 500mL bottle is the perfect size for traveling to and from school, just grab your sparkling water bottle by the loop and scoot out the door. ⁠

PS the My Only Bottle is also dishwasher safe (tell me I’m not the only one excited about this!) and available online at sodastream.ca or at your local London Drugs retailer ⁠
