Giving Back

Financial Contributions

A portion of all sales and vendor fees (and 50% of anything contributed to the tip jar) will go to the following group! This group was amongst those nominated on this site. Our vendors then voted that this cause should be the one to receive the funds.

Planned Parenthood Ottawa

PPO is a pro-choice organization supporting informed sexual and reproductive health choice through education, counselling, information and referral services.

HighJinx

HighJinx is a social enterprise that serves as a community hub. It’s physical home is a bit of a jack of all trades: there is a shop, they work to provide resources and goods to neighbours and the community as a whole, and they’re a friendly place for a chat or whatever else you might need. At their core they are about people and community.

Highlighting Community Resources
