Happy Tuesday Bean friends!
It's a special Tuesday because today is Giving Tuesday! After all the Black Friday & Cyber Monday madness (Rainbow Friday to us), we feel it’s an important time for us to take a moment and give back. So, for today only we’re offering 10% off your order and 10% of sales will be donated to Food Banks Canada.
Why Food Banks Canada?
Did you know that Canadians visited food banks nearly 1.1 million times in March of 2019?
35% of those relying on food banks are children, when they only represent 19% of the population.
These are only a few reasons why what Food Banks Canada is so important. Alongside this, providing food to those in need can be difficult for Food Banks at the best of times. With COVID-19, this has become increasingly hard. We wanted to support a national charity that was directly helping people in need during the pandemic.
