Give Back

Modern Mama Vancouver has a few things up its sleeve when it comes to GIVING BACK to our community.

We want to help families in two important ways.

1. Support the Vancouver International Children’s Festival

Join our Giving Group and support VICF, a charitable not for profit organization that depends on donations to provide the outstanding Kid’s Fest every summer on Granville Island.

As a group, we decide how to use our donations.

Here are a few ways we can give back.

  1. We could provide tickets for underprivileged kids and their families to attend the festival.
  2. Supply paints for the volunteers that donate their time to do face painting.
  3. Purchase safety vests for volunteers.
  4. Our donation will help to continue making the festival affordable for everyone.
  5. A combination of the above!

Your donation will contribute to an inspired vision of the future for our children and for our world.

The next festival is May 27th – June 1st 2014.

About the Vancouver International Childrens Festival

As a registered not-for-profit charity they rely on the support of government funders, corporate sponsors, private and public foundations, and of course, the generous individuals who donate, to ensure that families from every economic sector have access to the valuable arts and culture programming found only at the Vancouver International Children’s Festival.

‘When a child creates his world expands, along with his heart.’

2. Baby Go Round

In an effort to support Lower Mainland families in need, Modern Mama North Shore will be collecting donations for BabyGoRound at many of our events throughout the year.

BabyGoRound is a registered non-profit society formed by a group of women in the community who recognized a need and wanted to work to fulfill it. It is dedicated to providing Lower Mainland families in need with essential equipment, clothing, and products for their infants and young children 0-4 years old. These items are delivered to families in need through a network of qualified service partners in the community.

Most in demand items include high chairs, strollers, carseats, cribs, safety gates and diaper bags. The goal of BabyGoRound is to help mothers access the essentials they need to ensure the well-being of their babies and young children.

By providing concrete resources to their families through a network of social service professionals, the stress of having a new baby can be alleviated for those mothers who are struggling financially.

BabyGoRound strives to ensure that all parents and families in Greater Vancouver have the means to provide clothing and gear for their infants and young children, as they grow.

Thanks for helping us to support such a worthy cause!
