Snow Happy Ramblings

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

My goodness, this year has already started off with some drama.  In like a lion, out like a lamb though, right?

The internet is full of people's resolutions, intentions and goals for 2021.  Snow Happy's theme is love.  It really is what makes the world go around.

Love can be in a simple act of kindness, a smile for a stranger, a note to an absent friend, an extra treat for your pet.  It can also be in grand gestures too.  However it is expressed, it is a beautiful glue that brings us all together.  We all need that so desperately right now.

Snow Happy was conceived in love.  Love for the winter, for the snow, for the north, for the people who tough it out here in sometimes difficult circumstances.  

Those very people are so creative, so imaginative and have so much to share.  It is our honour to be able to share just a wee bit of it with you.

May 2021 bring every happiness and blessing to you and your family.

In health and love,

The Snow Happy Family

Introducing This Bag

Introducing This Bag

This is the story of two Canadians who were laying awake, worrying about the seasonal businesses that would most likely not open after the impacts of Covid-19, when the idea of this amazing initiative came to them.  This Bag registered as a non-profit organization and has been providing grants and donating to causes that not only support small businesses but also address food security among children, the health of our bee population, educating girls and accessibility of clean water.

This Bag believes that Canadian small businesses make up the framework of our communities. Our small business owners closed their doors to help keep everyone safe, and now This Bag hopes to return the favour and help keep their business stay safe and well as they take steps to adapt in this ever changing marketplace.

Already, This Bag has had a significant impact across Canada.  For more information on This Bag or to apply for a grant, please visit thisbag.ca

Iqaluit Humane Society in Danger of Closing

Iqaluit Humane Society in Danger of Closing

There is so much need in the world, so  much change that we need to collectively create and navigate.  Often it can be difficult to know how we can best help or contribute.

Nunavut's only humane society in Iqaluit is in danger of having to close.  The building that they are now housed in is infested with mold, and is scheduled for destruction.  The charitable organization is dependent on donations day to day, but can not manage this new development alone.

The Iqaluit Humane Society re-homes up to 700 animals per year, a much needed service that benefits both people and the pets as well.

A fundraiser has been launched, and if you have the means and will to help, you may support the Iqaluit Humane Society here.

A Leap into the Unknown

A Leap into the Unknown

For two years now, this idea has been percolating, drifting in and out of the seams of my already busy life.  

Today is the day that this small idea, born early on a frosty morning, is coming to life.  There will be growing pains and many lessons to learn, but in the endeavour to share happiness and joy, any obstable can be overcome.

It is my sincere hope that you will linger here from time to time, and share with me your thoughts, your own work, your own ideas so that this can be a collaborative and inclusive space.
