WHO

WE ARE

everyone deserves to feel

confident and cared for

HopeTotes is a non-registered, Canadian charity.

We donate gift bags of health and hygiene products

to women’s shelters across Canada.

Fifteen years ago, I founded HopeTotes with the desire to help those in need and to inspire the community around me. As a mother with a full time career as a professional actor, I wanted to create something accessible, affordable and fun that had a direct impact. HopeTotes has been a journey full of love, collaboration and creativity.

I am so lucky to live a life free of violence and poverty. My heart breaks for those who do. Small acts of kindness can change the world. Together we can make a difference, one Tote at a time.
