It’s always busy around Mabelhood HQ and we wanted to share some of the fun stuff that we’ve been up to this month.
A very cute bunny icon hopped its way into the Mabel’s Labels family of designs, just in time for spring!
The Community Relations Committee challenged each department to battle it out in an April food drive for Mission Services Opportunity Centres in Hamilton. The fact is 35,000 people in our community go without adequate daily food and 36% of those people are children. Everyone can help make a difference by donating what they can.
As always Julie Cole is super busy, you may have spotted her on CanadaAM on April 7. She was part of a parenting panel discussion. The following morning, Julie and her son Mack were on CHCH discussing autism.
In the spirit of earth day this week, today we’re out beautifying our adopted park (Jackson Park) and heading back to the office for our first BBQ of the season! We hope everyone gets a chance to head outside and enjoy the beginning of this beautiful spring weather!
Over the years, we’ve had a variety of organizations host a fundraiser with us to assist in generating funds for their cause. We felt it was time to shine the spotlight on some of the amazing people and organizations running a Mabel’s Labels Fundraiser.
Bearspaw Preschool Society – located in Calgary, Alberta – has been hosting a successful fundraiser for their not-for-profit organization since 2009. The fundraiser has helped them earn hundreds of dollars over the years to assist with buying supplies and funding day trips for the morning and afternoon programs. Bearspaw Preschool Society runs programs for children ages 3 & 4 and is operated by a five-member executive board; all of which are elected parent volunteers.
Bearspaw thinks that a Mabel’s Labels Fundraiser makes the most sense for a preschool, as it’s the first time many kids and parents are coming into a school environment. They believe that ensuring the students’ items are properly labeled and easily identifiable makes life easier for the parents, children and teachers. They also like that they can promote their campaign throughout the year through their community monthly magazine as well as in an introductory letter that each parent receives upon registration.
Their advice to other organizations running a Mabel’s Labels fundraiser is to actively promote it, and remind parents how beneficial labels are for all sorts of school gear.

The reason why Virgi’s Vikings walk; Lydia’s mother with her 3 of her 4 granddaughters.
Lydia from Etobicoke, Ontario has been running an online fundraiser with Mabel’s Labels since April 2013. Each year Lydia and her team, Virgi’s Vikings, walk for The Weekend to End Women’s Cancers in support of her mom, a breast cancer survivor. Lydia has raised over $200 to assist with the required donations for each member of her team.
It was through another fundraiser that Lydia found out about Mabel’s Labels and made her first purchase. Telling us that the labels pretty much sell themselves, she finds hosting a fundraiser with Mabel’s Labels to be easy. She shares her designated link for her fundraiser on social media and is sure to tell other Moms about it.
