It’s time for The Good Party

Written by , Posted in Toronto

Toronto-based social enterprise Good Foot Delivery reports significant positive social impact and return as it announces its annual fundraiser.

good It’s time for The Good Party

July 10, 2014 (TORONTO) Calling all good people: Toronto-based social enterprise Good Food Delivery announces The Good Party, its annual fundraiser, on July 16, 2014 at Artscape Youngplace.

 

Founded in 2010, Good Foot provides personalized point-to-point delivery service, and employment opportunities to people with developmental disabilities. The exceptionally talented team of Good Foot couriers delivers packages on foot or via public transit. Good Foot couriers cover hundreds of kilometers a day across the city and have delivered close to three thousand packages across the Greater Toronto Area so far in 2014.

The Good Party will feature live entertainment from roots-rock band The Parlour Brothers, a silent auction, food from chef Anthony Rose (Big Crow, Rose and Sons, Fat Pasha) and additional snacks and treats from Good Foot foodie clients like Yam Chops & The Goods.

This year’s fundraising goal of $75,000 will support the continued operation and growth of Good Foot, which is a non-profit, registered charitable organization.

Good Foot has recently released a preliminary Social Return on Investment (SROI) analysis that demonstrates the organization’s significant positive social impact.

The independent study, conducted by researchers at the University of Toronto’s Social Economy Centre, found that for every dollar invested in Good Foot, the social enterprise produced $2.36 in social value – more than double the investment and input.

In social value terms, Good Foot moves goods swiftly at competitive prices while creating meaningful employment opportunities for people with disabilities, and transforming perceptions of what a courier can do. That’s in addition to improving health and well-being for employees and their families, facilitating financial independence and self-direction for employees, reducing healthcare and ODSP costs, and nurturing community connections via a low or no-impact ecological footprint.

Now in its fourth year, what started as a two-person operation is now a team of 25 strong with 400 customers in the downtown core. Good Foot is progressively blazing a trail by changing the perception of what a social enterprise can accomplish. It’s business as usual with the bonus of bringing good people together to do good. The Good Party is an opportunity to support a groundbreaking local business and help generate true social value across communities.

Fuss-free and silky smooth with @Veet Natural Inspirations

Written by , Posted in Toronto, WorldWide

I received an awesome package full of Veet goodies last week, and with summer well on it’s a way (a girl can dream), I couldn’t think of a better time to receive them! Veet recently released their Veet Natural Inspirations line and I couldn’t wait to try it. They also have a facial hair removal cream, which I think is AWESOME, cause sometimes I can’t always make it to the salon to get the necessities done, so if I can do it by myself in-between waxes/threads, that’s even better!

IMG 2706 1024x682 Fuss free and silky smooth with @Veet Natural Inspirations

Pros: So far I’ve only used the Hair Removal Cream which is enriched with Grape Seed and Avocado oil. It left my skin feeling silky smooth and I didn’t have to use it again for another 3 weeks! It’s quick, easy and painless so for all my ladies who like to be silky smooth without the pain of waxing and/or threading, problem solved! Practically odourless: I usually stay away from hair removal creams as they have a strong odour, but Veet really came through with this Naturals line, you can barely smell it: I have super sensitive skin, and normally have an immediate eczema flare up after using hair removal products, but so far so very GOOD!

Cons: So far I’ve only used the hair removal cream on my legs, and I haven’t had any negative side effects.

@FjallRavenUSA Fall/Winter 2014 Collection Media Preview

Check out some of  our favourite pieces from the Fjällräven Fall/Winter 2014 Collection Media Preview that we attended last week.

“In the 1950’s, 14 year-old Åke Nordin from Örnsköldsvik in Northern Sweden spent more time outdoors than indoors. After many long treks in the mountains, Åke decided the backpacks at the time were unsatisfactory and took matters into his own hands by building a wooden frame. This evenly distributed weight across his back so the pack did not end up uneven, pear-shaped, and uncomfortable. It also meant he could carry more weight with ease. Åke’s innovation quickly caught on and in 1960 Fjällräven became the first to commercially make and distribute framed backpacks.”

“Fjällräven means Arctic Fox in Swedish, honoring the small and highly adaptable predator that lives in the Swedish mountains under the harshest conditions. From the small town of Örnsköldsvik, Fjällräven has now expanded to every corner in the world. The fundamental ideas remain the same; provide functional, durable, and timeless equipment to make the outdoors more enjoyable for all. We continue to find smart, innovative solutions to make every adventure an unforgettable one.”
