West Island Mommies fans – we are calling on you to help out this holiday season!1512785_218069811709654_1497344755_n

We are teaming up with local food bank On Rock to help families in need in the West Island this holiday season. On Rock is a food bank located in Pierrefonds that delivers much needed food to 200 families every week. For Christmas they will be delivering a food basket to each of these families so that they can enjoy a traditional Christmas meal and with the food basket, they also include a box of gifts for the children under 18 in the family.

This year we will be helping to collect new toys/items/gift cards so that each of these families will have something to put under the tree for their kids. This is where you come in! Here is what they are in need of:

  • Ages 1-4
  • Ages 5-7
  • Ages 8-10
  • Ages 11-13
  • Ages 14 and up

While they are in need of gifts for all ages, the older groups are always the hardest to fill, so we want to help them in all age groups. New toys for the younger ages are great, but they are looking for gift cards to give out to the older kids as well. A suggested amount for the gift cards would be about $10 to $15 for some shopping (ie. Fairview) or perhaps to the movies.

All gifts should be dropped off unwrapped, and there are various drop-off points in the West Island.  We have 5 drop off locations this year. For Gift cards please contact me at westislandmommies@gmail.com

LUNA OIL is an ingredient-conscious skincare line that is 100% NATURAL, ORGANIC & CRUELTY-FREE. Their unique face and body oil formulations are based on the ancient knowledge of Ayurveda which harvests powerful botanicals in order to provide time-tested benefits of clear, soft, radiant skin. Not a single drop of harsh, synthetic chemicals, fragrances or coloring agents are used in their innovative and luxurious products.

The creator behind Luna Oil is Maya Levi, a Montrealer and a busy mom who fully commits herself to providing safe, organic, non-toxic cosmetics: ¨My skincare motto has always been that if you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin”. She has spent a lot of time choosing the right oils and herbs, making sure they are only the purest, highest grade and most beneficial for the skin. ¨It was important for me to stay true to the Ayurveda roots, as these principals offer centuries-old wisdom with plants that enable healing, revitalizing and oil-to-water balancing of the skin.”

There are three distinct FACE OILS to choose from:
Vata Face Oil  – which is specifically created for dry, delicate, wrinkle-prone skin and include rich, hydrating oils such as tamanu and avocado oils

 

Pitta Face Oil – which is for sensitive, combination skin, and offers cooling and nurturing oils such as coconut and rosehip oils
Kapha Face Oil –  which is for oily skin and uses  astringent,  cleansing oils such as tea tree and frankincense
The product line also includes three soon to be released face serums: anti-aging serum; blemish fighter and face brightener in their ANTIDOTE COLLECTION.
The BODY OILS are made up of gorgeous floral infusions ranging from roses, jasmine flowers, lavender and amaranth. These oils don’t just give remarkable skin results but are visually stunning  and make wonderful Christmas gifts.
