On December 1st, 2021, 24 hand curated Pediatric Care Kits were donated to the Child Advocacy and Assessment Program at the McMaster Children’s Hospital. After receiving funding from the RisingYouth community service grant, Rachel & Madie spent weeks gathering toys, clothes, blankets, and more into these customized individual care packages for children. With 3 different targeted age groups in mind (0-2, 2-5 and 6-8 years) with a gift for their primary caregiver, the project was born after they realized the implications the pandemic had on BIPOC communities and vulnerable mothers and parents.
