Black Friday weekend marks the official start of the holiday season, and after a little bit of indulgence for loved ones and sometimes ourselves too (hey, we all deserve it!) We also want to take a look back this Giving Tuesday at some of the amazing organizations we supported this past year.

As a women-run Canadian company that continues to make all of our convertible dresses in Canada, we like to focus our philanthropy on organizations supporting females, youth, newcomers and vulnerable communities. We're humbled by the important and vital work of these groups, and proud to partner with them through donations, staff time and sponsorship. 

 

Henkaa has donated products to the following organizations in 2018:


 

Creative Zone

The Creative Zone accepts donations of supplies that could be used to “enhance and expand” classroom resources for teachers from the Peel District School Board, Kindergarten staff from the Dufferin Peel Catholic School Board and child care operators in Peel to use! Henkaa donated textile waste that otherwise would have ended up in the landfill along with product donations.

 

New Circles

New Circles provides clothing, necessities and training to those living in poverty. They operate the largest clothing bank in Toronto under the name of GLOW (Gently Loved Outfits to Wear ). GLOW has 20,000 visits annually. New Circles helps many newcomers as well as in-need families get on their feet. Over the past five years Henkaa has donated new products and gently used garments. This year marked our 5th year as a drop off location for the organization's formal wear collection initiative. All these dresses were donated to New Circles to help them provide formal wear for girls graduating elementary school and high school!

 

YWCA (Young Women’s Christian Association of Greater Toronto)

The YWCA help women and girls “flee violence, secure housing, find jobs, establish their voices, enhance skills and develop confidence.” They also engage in systemic advocacy. Henkaa donated brand new undergarments as well as multi-way bags for their Teen Mothers Program.

 

Gowns for Girls

Gowns for Girls is an organization that provides grads in grade eight and grade 12 free prom and graduations dresses. They accept donations of dresses, jewelry and shoes. Henkaa donated convertible dresses and accessories to help graduates in need of formal wear to help them look and feel their best.

 

The Toronto Shoebox Project

The Toronto Shoebox Project has been around since 2011, they encourage members of the community to wrap a shoebox filled with necessities and gifts valued at $50. These gifts are then given to women in need as a holiday gift. Since their start they have gifted 130,000 shoeboxes, valued at over 6.5 million dollars.

Over the past three years Henkaa staff have spent time creating shoeboxes to donate to the organization. For our fourth year we are lovingly packing and wrapping our shoeboxes on Giving Tuesday!

 


Community Sponsorships

MAC Camps 2018 Gala

 https://macministries.ca/media/mac-camps-2018-gala/

MAC (Ministry to Africans in Canada) Camps 2018 Gala is an annual fundraising Gala. The 2018 gala provided a unique indoor camp experience for its guests. The objective? To raise money to provide refugee or immigrant children a camp experience.  Henkaa provided a silent auction item to support the event.

 

Mon Sheong Cathay Ball 2018

The Mon Sheong Foundation helps raise money to support Chinese children, youth and senior citizens. Henkaa's founder, Joanna was a Chinese refugee from Vietnam. It is important for us to help give back to organizations helping newcomers thrive in Canada. The Mon Sheong Cathay Ball is one of their largest fundraising events, Henkaa donated silent auction items in support.

 

G DAY

G Day is an annual event for tween girls ages 10 to 12 and their parents or supportive adults. It is a day that celebrates the transition between childhood and adolescence in these girls lives. The day includes public speakers and confidence boosting activities. Henkaa was one of the sponsors for the event and helped fill the swag bags for the youth; we also sponsored gifts for the volunteers and outfitted one of the key speakers Sarah Taylor.

 

Modern Mama Social

Modern Mama Social helps plan events for moms, so that they can meet other moms and local mompreneurs in the GTA, socialize and build a supportive community. For one of their events in 2018, Henkaa provided product for their swag bags.

 

If your charity or event is in need of donations or sponsorship, please reach out to Henkaa! We are always looking for new ways to give back.
