MODERN PURAIR and the PURKIDS Foundation
At Mamas for Mamas we know just how true it is that is takes a village to raise a child. Now more than ever, we recognize how important it is to have a strong community to support that village.
We are so proud to work with MODERN PURAIR and the PURKIDS Foundation to fill the gaps in poverty relief support to families in 16 communities across Canada. Every franchise owner contributes 1% of their revenue to Mamas for Mamas, not just because it’s part of their business model but because it’s part of their personal imperative to ensure no child goes to bed hungry and no mama is left behind.
We truly could not do what we do in so many different communities without this generous and life-changing partnership. We thank you for joining the movement to change the landscape of poverty and truly being the change we need to see in this world.
April and Lane Martin from MODERN PURAIR may tuck their capes in so they look like regular humans, but don’t let them fool you. They’re real-life superheroes. Together, they have donated tens of thousands of dollars directly to their neighbours in need. Quietly. Without fanfare. They look at their neighbours not to compete, but to ensure they have enough.
It’s safe to say they care a whole awful lot. Normally with this partnership, we keep every dollar local, community dollars staying within each franchise region. When we began working with sweet Lucy and Kaysen, who both need to raise 3 million dollars for life-saving medical treatment, however, April jumped at the chance to give these babes the support directly this time around. Both families, one in Alberta and one in B.C. will receive $2000 towards their fundraising goal from the PURKIDS Foundation this week! This is ABOVE AND BEYOND the other 4 mamas we have been able to help directly with PURKIDS support in the last month.
This right here is kindness as currency at its best. Charity doesn’t solve poverty, community does.
