At Lagoon Baby, we try to make the world a better place by selling natural, non-toxic, and reusable every day items. Another way that Lagoon Baby tries to make the world a better place is by giving back. Each month, Lagoon Baby donates a portion of our sales to a charity.
Cat Therapy and Rescue Society is a registered Canadian charity that specializes in in special needs cats, cats from overcrowded shelters, abandoned cats and owner surrenders that are at risk of euthanasia. The goal is to help these cats find loving homes where they can be happy, healthy, and cared for.
This month, Lagoon Baby is giving back to the Canadian Red Cross! Since 1896, the Canadian Red Cross has been providing humanitarian aid across the world. We mainly hear about the Canadian Red Cross when it comes to disaster relief, but mobilizing humanitarian assistance is necessary at all times.
This month, we're donating to Crohn's and Colitis Canada! Crohn's and Colitis Canada is a national, volunteer staffed organization committed to finding a cure for these two conditions. They work towards this goal by funding research, educating, sponsoring patient programs, advocacy, and awareness. Since 1974, Crohn's and Colitis Canada have donated over $100 million dollars to research, facilitating treatments to improve the quality of life for sufferers of Crohn's Disease and Colitis.
January 2019 - Katie's Place
For January 2019, we're donating to Katie's Place. Katie's Place is a no-kill cat shelter in Maple Ridge, BC that is staffed by volunteers. They have up to 125 cats at any given time, with some being rehabilitated to go to new homes and others who are unadoptable finding a permanent and safe sanctuary.
This is our first month of our new charitable initiative. This month, we're proud to support the Fauna Foundation through adopting Sue Ellen. Fauna Foundation is the only chimpanzee sanctuary in Canada. These chimps are former biomedical research animals with a new lease on life in the safe, protected environment provided by the Fauna Foundation.
