One of the fundamental principles of philanthropy is giving back. But this does not always have to be in the for of money. Youth shelters are always in need of various items. The less money that a shelter can spend on personal hygiene products or clothes, the more they can spend on housing and food for the young people they serve nightly. By realizing this need, youth can mobilize and bring about great change within the community.

For the winter months of 2011 and 2012, the Good Movement executive team gathered donations for the Warmth Project — a warm clothing drive for Blue Door Shelter. Initially, this warm clothing drive started as a York Region initiative. The Good Movement @ York Team took the lead, and most of the donations came from the York University community.
As the weeks went on, and the weather began to dip — it was clear that everyone wanted to contribute to the project. So, it expanded. And kept expanding. We eventually had two drop offs.
