We Act Locally and Think Globally
We believe it’s both a gift and a responsibility to make a difference in our local and global community. Every year, we passionately share, give, partner, and work to help others and to strengthen bonds and connections, near and far.
Mikinakoos Children’s Fund
Mikinakoos Children’s Fund is a charity created to address the quality of life imbalance in remote northwestern Ontario communities by improving access to food, clothing and basic amenities. They support 33 First Nations in northwestern Ontario with their services.
On September 30th, Herbaland donated 100% of their sales to the Mikinakoos Children’s Fund and will be providing them with gummy vitamins to distribute to the communities they support.
North Shore Rescue
The North Shore Rescue (NSR) is a volunteer community-based search and rescue operating mainly in North Vancouver and surrounding areas. The NSR is there when you need them most, and are on call 24/7, 365 days a year. This team of heroes is 100% volunteer-based, even though each mountain rescue puts their lives on the line.
To perform successful rescues, the NSR needs high quality rescue equipment, transportation, and communication technology. Maintaining these things is costly, which is why the NSR needs support from organizations such as ours. We want to support their mission to save lives and give back to our local community, which is why we’re proud to be a sponsor of the NSR.
Athletics for Kids
All across BC, hundreds of children and youth are denied the opportunity to participate in amateur sports due to one simple fact: lack of funds. As a privately funded charity, Athletics for Kids (A4K) are able to get dollars into the hands of those who need it most, quickly and effectively. They help families bear the expense of having their children participate in organized sports because they strongly believe that all kids should have the chance to play. We were able to support A4K at their 20th anniversary event and will also be supporting their annual Firefighters Charity Fishing Derby event. Learn more about A4K and how to donate below:
Crabtree Corner is a facility run by YWCA located in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside that helps women, children and families who are marginalized.
We support Crabtree Corner with donations of our essential vitamins for mothers and children, which they are able to give away to the community they support. From transitional housing for expecting and new mothers working on their recovery, to child care, parenting support groups and hot meal programs, YWCA has a huge impact on the Downtown Eastside Community!
Lotus Light Charity Society
The Lotus Light Charity Society (LLCS) is an organization that strives to support the most vulnerable families. With the help of the community, they hand out food, clothes, and daily necessities. A few of our Herbaland team members were able to help out those in need in the Downtown Eastside. LLCS hosts many charity events throughout the year and are always looking for donations and volunteers to help make a difference in the community. Learn more about how you can support the Lotus Light Charity Society.
Backpack Buddies help to tackle the weekend hunger gap, serving roughly 4000 meals every week to those who need them. A few members of our Herbaland team went out to volunteer! They packed roughly 250 food bags with 500 of our Good News Gummies to be delivered all across BC.
They are always looking for more help and donations. To get involved check out the link below.
Covenant House Vancouver
Covenant House Vancouver provides care and shelter to Vancouver's homeless and at-risk street youth. Herbaland helped donate over 300 gummy pouches to their Christmas Backpack Program, which helps provide essential items and gifts to youth in need during the holiday season.
Canucks Autism Network
Working with the Vancouver Canucks and the Canucks Autism Network (CAN) couldn't be more of a perfect way to support our objective in building a more open and inclusive community. CAN provides year-round sports and recreation programs for individuals and families living with autism while increasing awareness and training in British Columbia communities.
Herbaland set out to donate 10% of all gummy sales and 100% of all merch sales for three weeks leading up to the game night. We are proud to announce that Herbaland raised over $8,000 for CAN through this initiative!
Mamas for Mamas
We are a proud partner of Mamas For Mamas, a national charitable organization that supports mothers and caregivers. We are able to donate essential vitamins to their pantries where moms can pick up what they need, free of charge.
From June 21 to July 12, 2021, 50% of sales from our Multivitamin and Sugar-Free Vitamin C products went directly to Mamas for Mamas. We are pleased to announce that together we raised $3,000CAD to support Mamas and families in need. Thank you to everyone that participated in our fundraising campaign!
Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives
Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives (RCRG) is a vital hub for volunteering and serving the community of Richmond for nearly 50 years. In 2020, we were honored to join forces, becoming one of RCRG's Angel Donors, supporting and participating in their annual RCMP Toy Drive, which we continue today.
In 2021, we teamed up to create a limited-edition face mask, donating 100% of proceeds directly to their non-profit, ensuring that Richmond's most vulnerable residents had access to essential community services. We look forward to our continuation of support with Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives, into 2022.
