Maplelea Helping Families Of Fort McMurray
Many of you have written and asked me how close I am to the very huge fire that is burning in Alberta and Saskatchewan, currently known as the Fort McMurray or Fort Mac fire. I am about 24 hours of drive time away. I am however following it closely as more then 100,000 people have been displaced and left with out not just a home but a community to go home too, currently it may be June before some of these people can return just to even see the damage that has been done to their community.
Maplelea like many other Canadian companies is doing it's part to help people affected by this fire. For the next few days 25% of revenues recieved from the sale of the Canadian girl and Doll clothing line will be donated to the Save the Children Canada . Please see below to learn more about this fundraiser and how you can help."This trusted charitable organization has a long history of providing funding and relief to children and families in Canadian communities and across the world. In addition to providing essential materials and supplies for families with babies and young children affected by the fires, Save the Children is operating multiple Child Friendly Spaces in Edmonton. These spaces provide a sense of normalcy and community, when everything familiar has been disrupted and potentially lost. You can learn more about their efforts in Alberta at www.savethechildren.ca."
