Partner 1 - Zawadi La Tumaini (ZLT Hope Home)

Zawadi La Tumaini (ZLT) is a children's home in Nairobi, Kenya. It was founded in 2013, and now provides a home to 27 children from all backgrounds.

Their mission is to provide a loving home to orphaned and abandoned children, and to those rescued from childhood sexual abuse. They believe in providing their children with proper nutrition, education, and health care in a holistic environment that builds strong family bonds. Their goal is to raise their children to become responsible and dignified adults, with core values that will empower them to be successful and contributing members of society. 

In 2019, ZLT is expanding its operations to provide rescue and a safe home environment to children who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse. 

Good Stuff is proud to work with ZLT as our first ever charity partner. All proceeds from the sale of Good Stuff stickers between January 1 and March 31, 2019 will go directly towards ZLT to help them continue to make a difference in the lives of the children in their care.

Partner 2 - The Elgin St. Mission

Founded in 1989, The Elgin St. Mission ('The Mission') has seen continued growth in service and favour within its Sudbury, ON community as it provides physical, emotional and spiritual nourishment to all who enter its doors.

A non-profit, non-political registered charity, The Mission is funded by donations from individuals, businesses, and other organizations. It does not receive any regular government or city funding, but functions through the generosity of its community partners. This support enables them to offer all their services free of charge to their patrons.

The Mission provides two meals a day (breakfast & supper - with their neighbour, The Blue Door Soup Kitchen providing lunches) each day of the year, working out to roughly 90,000 meals yearly. They offer a free clothing room, showers, laundry facilities, and a safe refuge for those in need. Individuals and families can also access counselling services, spiritual development and/or referrals in a non-judgemental community atmosphere, at their own discretion.

The Mission exists to serve everyone in their community, regardless of ethnicity, religion, economic status, sexual orientation, or social condition. They believe strongly that no one should be left behind.

Good Stuff is proud to work with The Mission as our second charity partner of 2019. All proceeds from the sale of Good Stuff stickers between April 1 and June 30, 2019 will go directly to The Mission to help them continue to make a difference in the lives of those in need. 

Fun fact - our founder, Vanessa, has been volunteering at The Mission since 2011, serving on a regular weekly crew while she was living in Sudbury and now returning roughly once a month to help serve the suppertime meal. She has made many friends and has seen first-hand the good work being done there. She is proud to be able to partner with and support The Mission through her business.
