*Every purchase donates 10% to Live for the Cause
I am caring, determined and passionate about philanthropy and fighting for causes that I believe in. I recognize that there are far too many people in need in my very own community and have discovered that there are many people in that same community who want to help. But where does one start? I am determined that by helping others discover causes they are passionate about, we can change the world, one meaningful project at a time. I have seen that once individuals open their hearts and their minds to the possibilities of philanthropy, the lives of everyone around them become enriched in the most beautiful way.
Live for the Cause (LFTC) is a Montreal-based foundation whose mission is to engage, empower, and educate people of all ages on the important and rewarding aspects of becoming involved in philanthropy, with the ultimate goal of enhancing the Montreal community at large.

I am a fighter. My battle is a difficult one as it's a daily battle against a part of myself. I stumble and fall but get right back up again, and again. Every day I learn to love myself a little more one baby step at a time. One day I will see myself as I really am, beautiful, authentic and unique. Nothing is gained by trying to resemble someone that I am not…for the love of me.

We never expected the Montreal Flood of 2017, but it came anyway and it destroyed people’s homes, belongings and memories. Although we tried to hold on, it was something we couldn’t do alone. We needed help and it did come. It came from strangers and neighbors. It came in all shapes, sizes, races and religions – all coming together with one common goal, to make a difference. We saw that community makes us strong, gives us hope, and helps us heal. And that day, and in the days to come, we saw even more clearly, that there is strength in numbers.
