Awareness.

Here at Cold Coffee Fabrics, we want to use our growing platform to spread awareness and help raise funds for marginalized groups and non-profits in Ontario and across Canada. Each Pre-Order will feature panel(s) or prints that will have proceeds going towards a registered non-profit organization in Canada. These panels or prints will be marked in the description so you know which ones are included. It's our way of giving back and lending a hand to those that may need it. On this page, you'll find information for the group that we are currently raising funds for. As well as photos of our previous donations. If you have a non-profit organization that is dear to your heart, please nominate them by emailing us or messaging our page. We can't guarantee that they will be included in an upcoming round, but we will do our best to spread the love across as many organizations as we can.

August 2021: Canadian Red Cross BC Wildfire Fund

For this preorder, we had 2 options for camping panels with $4 from each panel sold being donated to the Red Cross to help support those affected by the wildfires in British Columbia. The Government of Canada and the Government of British Columbia matched every dollar donated to the Canadian Red Cross (CRC), which means that every $4 donated per panel sale became $12 to support those affected by the wildfires.

"Donations will be used for immediate and ongoing relief efforts, long term recovery, resiliency, and preparedness for future events in British Columbia and impacted regions, including consequential events related to the fires."
