Our Mission:

To distribute loot bags to children who are temporarily living in Women’s Shelters.  Currently, these bags are delivered to 8 Women’s Shelters in the G.T.A. (Greater Toronto Area.)

What is The Krinkle Project?

The Krinkle Project is an initiative which distributes loot bags to children who are temporarily living in Women’s Shelters in the G.T.A.

Each season, our team collects, and distributes 200 loot bags to children in Women’s Shelters.  Our program currently supports 8 shelters, with the understanding that there is demand at all shelters across the city.

The name of the project was inspired by the first loot bag we handed out, as a test, to a friend’s child; beyond the contents of the bag itself, she loved the sound of the cellophane bag… the krinkle sound it made, and so the project was named.

Contents of the bags vary based on the season and items donated/collected. The bags may include night lights, hair ornaments, stickers, books, pencil cases, lunch boxes, school supplies, and other small toys.

The program began in July 2015 and by the end of 2018, we will have distributed over 3,000 loot bags.

These 8 shelters are currently receiving our loot bags, 4 times per year.
