If the Mood Ring Fits, Wear It!

Posted on

Although our collective office wardrobe can seem a bit monotone at times (read: black), we love any reason to excuse to accessorize. Lucky for us, we found a perfect reason to glam up, thanks to Partners for Mental Health and the Bay’s amazing initiative. Just in time for the holidays, 10,000 limited-edition mood rings will be sold exclusively at The Bay and online to help transform the way Canadians think about, act towards and support mental health in Canada. We’re all for making bold statements (have you read our mantra?), so this initiative is right up our alley: it brings back a favourite 90s’ trend and helps raise awareness for an incredibly important issue in our communities.

Check out the limited-edition mood rings at 13 Bay locations across Canada, and online at www.thebay.com for a suggested retail price of $10. A portion of the proceeds of each ring sold will go to Partners for Mental Health, to help raise awareness, change attitudes and improve support for mental health through campaigns like “Not Myself Today.”

Introducing… Kandy with a K!

Posted on

What could be better than eating candy… for a cause?

When planning our 10th anniversary initiatives, we knew we wanted to include something fun and unique that gives us the opportunity to give back. An integral part of our mandate, NKPR has championed cause-related  initiatives that have helped  to raise 10 million dollars for various charities and organizations since day one. Now at year 10, we wanted to create a fun and sweet way to give back!

Combine our passion for social responsibility with an office sweet tooth, countless event candy bars and the concept for Kandy with a K was born!

Kandy with a K is a cause-driven candy store offering an assortment of nostalgic candies. Think Popeye Candy Sticks, FIZZ, Tootsie Roll Pops, Gumballs and Pop Rocks! Are we bringing back childhood memories yet?

Starting May 14, Canadians can purchase an assortment of ‘kandy’ in the amounts of $25, $50, $75 or higher in support of 10 Canadian charities that hold a special place for NKPR and our clients – Camp Oochigeas, Musicounts, Paws for the Cause, Artists for Peace and Justice, Partners for Mental Health, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, Girls on the Run and Can Fund!

We have already placed our first order! After all, how could we have an unlimited supply of candy in the office without indulging a bit ourselves?

Now we need your support!  Please visit kandywithak.com for a sweet way to give back!  The Kandy with a K bar will also be set up in the NKPR office so come visit us at 312 Adelaide St. W. to pick up your candy in person!

NKPR is incredibly excited to be celebrating our 10th Anniversary this year! Check out NKPR’s timeline, a look back at our 10 years in business!

XO!
