Today, the Children's Storefront in Toronto is open

The Children's Storefront opened today for the first time since the old one burned down. Everything is new because we lost it all in a fire Oct 09. This place is special. It saved my sanity as a mother years ago, and continues to do the same for new parents today. It opened today and that is because hundreds of people worked very hard. Sorry to report that no adults are allowed to borrow things from the dressup bins. Not even the Batman stuff.

Good job everyone. They should be funding adult-sized superhero costumes for all of you.

thank you! We are so proud of ourselves. We raised over $300,000 in less than a year, and with only one corporate grant of $80,000--that means the rest was all small individual donations. There's a lot of joy going on at the Storefront these days. I just have to recover from last night's celebration. And the best costume is not superhero, it's a horse, complete with four feet. I wish I could fit into it. good to share the small victories with my moblog friends.
