Good To Be Good Foundation is a growing grassroots initiative whose purpose is to ignite social change with the power of transformational goods and unbounded compassion. We partner with our local network of influential organizations and charities (Red Door Family Shelter, Women’s Habitat of Etobicoke, BOOST For Kids, Community Food Centres Canada, Dixon Hall Neighbourhood Services) to break the cycle of poverty and social injustices within our communities. Our primary focus areas are human rights, social justice, and anti-poverty. We work toward a future where our fellow human beings can thrive in peace, liberty and good health so that they may have the well-rounded lives everyone deserves. Together with our community, we aim in helping improve outcomes for the families and women who need it most.
What began as a small, informal gathering of friends and family donating essential goods for neighbourhood shelters, has grown into a community-wide mission with the support of kindred companies and change-makers from all walks of life. Thanks to our contributors and sponsors, we are able to keep our events’ administrative costs low which allows us to direct our efforts in fostering donations and raising awareness for the (supported) cause.
Between 2016-2018, with a total 6 of charity events, our collective has raised over $8500+ and 20,000+ donated items aiding mothers, young women, babies, children, and youth. We believe that the impact of a thoughtful donation, both from an emotional and economic standpoint, reinforces meaningful change, progress for others and the overall goodness of humanity. In our efforts to do good, we give significance to consistent “small yet mighty acts of kindness” in constructing the change we want to see in the world. No matter how big or small the act is, our choices as an individual affects the whole and no life is separate from another. At the core, we recognize that equality belongs to the responsibility of each and every one of us and honour that in everything we do with each other.
We champion action. We value compassion. We stand for equality. We are here to serve and be of use.
