After her father’s sudden passing, Shannon was left with an
inheritance that allowed her to take a community Facebook page into
Canada’s first non-profit born and run on social media. Mamas for
Mamas is a now a national charitable organization that supports
mothers and caregivers (including men, trans, non-binary, and
two-spirit clients in crisis) by providing ongoing support to
individuals and families facing various poverty-related struggles.
This includes emotional poverty. Whether needing support, or
wanting to give it, Mamas for Mamas is meant to bridge the gap and
make sure that no child or mama is left behind, if Mamas for Mamas
can help it. This is an emotionally charged and honest conversation
about how charity doesn’t solve poverty but community does.
