I never thought cancer would affect my family- and yet it did on April 2, 2008. Cancer took my Mom away from us. She had the same cancer as Luciano Pavarotti, and Randy Pausch and I am comforted to know she is sharing a place with great people.

I have been walking in the Relay for Life since June, 2008 and this year we decided to host a big fundraiser – all proceeds donated towards The Canadian Cancer Society. Through our networking I met Kendall from @OakvilleBP, she invited me for lunch and we planned our first fundraising event hosted at the Oakville Boston Pizza, located at Winston Churchill and the QEW.

From that moment I did not slow down, I enlisted the help of some pretty amazing people, @Optimom, @BarleySugar, @BigDaddyKreativ, @RobynConnolly. Without hesitation from my wonderful friends they were all behind me and assisted in making this year a huge success. These are the members in this amazing networking group

Thank you to the fabulous business’s and people that donated products for our silent auction and door prizes

WonderMoms.ca is an online resource – geared to families – serving Burlington, Milton, Mississauga, Oakville and surrounding neighbourhoods. Created to reach out to other Moms (and now Dads) to offer support, it has become a community of encouragement, friendship and strength for parents and families.

In 2008, we created the WonderMoms Forum. With the assistance and support of amazing friends and members, we built a great forum (now over 800 strong), which led to the creation of today’s WonderMoms.ca site.

WonderMoms Forum

Are you a Mom (or Dad)? Looking to connect with other Moms (Dads) in your community? Searching for advice? Have wisdom to share? Then the WonderMoms Forum is for you!! We have hot topics, parenting advice, outings – a great way to connect, interact and meet with other parents.

What Else Will I Find at WonderMoms.ca?

WonderMoms.ca is an interactive site focusing on families. We currently have 25 people contributing articles that supply practical information – from health & wellness, to interior design, to tech info, to breastfeeding, to energy savings, and so much more. Each month we grow bigger and better as we gain more friends and receive more support from our fantastic followers!

Resources, resources, resources!! What are you looking for? We have a resource for that! And if we don’t? We do our best to find it!! Looking for something to do on March break or over the holidays? We have a calendar of events with information on adult, kid and family outings and ideas.

There are contests too!! In the past, we have given away a Tassimo Beverage System, a year of hair-cuts at Sharkey’s Cuts for Kids, gift baskets and lots of other exciting prizes and products donated by our wonderful members and sponsors.

Some of our contests are open to everyone – and others are only open to members of our WonderMoms Forum. There is something for everyone!!

Making a Difference in the Community

A very important aspect of WonderMoms.ca is our investment in community support. In the fall/winter of 2009, working with two local businesses – Williams Fresh Café and Oakville.com – we held a food drive in Oakville, resulting in over 10 grocery carts of food donated to the Oakville Fareshare Food Bank. We could not have accomplished this without the huge support of our WonderMoms.ca members and sponsors!!

WonderMoms.ca is also a proud supporter of the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. 2010 marks the 3rd year that WonderMoms.ca will be participating in the Oakville Relay for Life event.

Whether you are a stay-at-home mom, an entrepreneur or parent who works outside the home, consider WonderMoms.ca your one-stop resource for practical information and online answers to the everyday needs of parents.
