$180,000 of #LearningPotential

If you could learn something new today that would help you thrive, what would it be? In 2021, more good things are happening through our Simple Generosity program – including helping people in our local communities grow their knowledge and opportunities.

Throughout August and September, we’re making ‘aha’ moments happen, supporting skill development, encouraging self-taught study, and fostering education. Why? We believe in the power (and joy) of life-long learning.

Learn more about Simple Generosity


Over the past year, we’ve seen people, businesses and non-profits cope with new demands and challenges. For many, it’s been harder to thrive and we want to help alleviate financial hardship through the power of community-helping-community.

In 2021, our Simple Generosity program is magnifying it’s impact by adding a million-dollar giving program, and we've completed two waves already. You can participate in our thriving minds campaign right now, with one final wave of support still coming later this year.

​Complete! $140,000 for families

Recently, we asked you to share stories about how your family thrives together. Hundreds of comments inspired us to pay-it-forward with community donations.

Complete! Over 228 charities supported

Through the comments of kindness you left on our social media posts, we’ve paid $87,500 forward to over 228 different charities who serve our communities and help them thrive.

Taking care of businesses

The shops and services in our neighbourhoods are a vital part of our economic story and this year we will help them write a new chapter.

Coming: October 4 to November 29
