Fundraise While you Shop!
We are partnering with three local companies that we feel are in line with our values and lifestyles as a Waldorf school. These fundraisers have been endorsed both by the Development Office and the Parent Circle. Through these opportunities, we hope to raise some extra funds for TWS as well as promote community.
Fundraiser # 1 - Warmth and Weather
Canadian Importers of Organic Wool and Wool/Silk Clothing
Warmth and Weather, a sister company to Mercurius Canada (a school vendor), is offering organic wool and wool/silk under and outer clothing suitable for the whole family, for the fall. They have a retail storefront at My Child Myself, located on Rutherford Rd. behind the school.
The owners of the company, alumni parents Heather Church and Arlene Thorn, are offering a 30- 40 percent revenue return on each sale through the school. Warmth and Weather will supply a code to interested families in the TWS community, and will forward to the school a donation cheque on a quarterly basis.

Fundraiser # 2 Donate Naturally
A local company that delivers all of your natural and organic grocery, household, and personal products.
was brought to our attention recently by a parent at the school. Donate Naturally are the owners of Life Choices Natural Foods, a line of organic food products. Their family owns Grandview Farms, a 400 hectares certified organic cattle farm near Collingwood.
They do not have a retail storefront, which means they can afford to donate 15 percent of the pre-tax value of your order to the charity of your choice. All you have to do is register and pick Toronto Waldorf School in the drop down list, then all donations from the TWS community will be allocated to the school. They manage the transaction and delivery to you, and send us a donation cheque every quarter.
They deliver within the GTA for $5, or save the $5 if you pick up at Vaughan Mills on Friday afternoons. For more information about what they offer, please visit: www.donatenaturally.com
Fundraiser # 3 Eggy Weggs
Organic free range eggs straight from the farm
Eggy Weggs is Alysa Golden, a Waldorf parent of two and Hope Eco Farms, an organic Amish farm co-op in Aylmer.
"I wanted to serve my kids grass-fed, roaming chicken eggs so I began bringing the eggs in from the farm." Alysa says. "I then turned it into a social enterprise. Since February, 60 Waldorf Academy families have been dropping off their kids at school and picking up their beautiful eggs, and now organic vegetables. The school receives 25 percent of the profits."
To sign up and for more info, contact Alysa at email@example.com. Her plan is to drop off orders at TWS each Tuesday morning between 8:30 and 9:00 at the south parking lot at Bathurst Street.
