Over the past 18 months, we have experienced an action-packed whirlwind of activity filled to the brim with all things GiveAMask.ca. From the late-night brainstorming sessions in March 2020, to the official website launch that led us to creating and selling great masks and t-shirts. While we are certainly proud of the work that’s been done, we are most proud of the difference we were able to make – and the meaningful relationships that have been fostered with the Canadian organizations directly serving those in need of support.

Excerpt: Love and safety is for everyone and we want to make sure that everyone receives it. Show your support for the 2SLGBTQIA+ with us!
GiveAMask.ca is now in partnership with EDSNA (Eating Disorder Support Network of Alberta) and to kick things off, we're launching a mask design competition to raise awareness about and support Eating Disorder Awareness Week.
We still need your help to support those in need. If people are concerned about their next meal, they cannot afford the adequate protections we take for granted every day. Every one deserves to feel safe - especially during a pandemic, and your continued support allows us to continue providing masks to food banks.
GiveAMask.ca, the Canadian organization co-founded by Paruksheen Dhunjisha and Michael Carrier, has found a way to make their buy-one-donate-one mask service go even further. By partnering with Edmonton’s Food Bank, they are helping essential workers get a free mask in Edmonton. The Edmonton’s Food Bank Partnership Giveamask.ca’s products are Canadian made, cloth, washable, and reusable. They come in a range of colours and two sizes (adult and child). Every time a mask is purchased, a mask is donated to someone in need. With the Edmonton’s Food Bank partnership, using the coupon code Edmonton10 not only enables you to get 10% off the purchase of a mask, all the masks purchased with this code enable a donation directly to Edmonton’s Food...
Just in time for Pride month, our Pride! mask makes a bold and beautiful statement with a special message promoting every kind of love. This special edition mask also comes in every colour of the rainbow, get yours today! Our Pride! mask was designed in partnership with YMCA Sprott House, which proudly supports 2SLGBTQ+ youth in Toronto. Since 2007, they’ve helped thousands of kids and young adults find transitional housing and other essential services. Now GiveAMask.ca is helping too. For every Pride! Mask purchased, we will donate one to Sprott House to be used by their residents. Everyone deserves love, everyone deserves freedom, and everyone deserves to feel safe. Happy Pride everyone!
This week, we did our first set of donations - 40 each to the Daily Bread Food Bank and Feed the Need in Durham. We met with an employee at the Daily Bread to drop the masks off; we wanted to give a shout-out to all of the wonderful employees and volunteers that are keeping our most vulnerable populations safe and healthy during these trying times. It feels so great to give back, that's what we're all about.
