One Fire Movement has been honored to work with and support some wonderful organizations since 2009.
Here are some of our favorite partners:
Amnesty International is a non-governmental organization focused on human rights. The organization has over 7 million members and supporters around the world.
The objective of the organization is "to conduct research and generate action to prevent and end abuses of human rights, and to demand justice for those whose rights have been violated.

The Mission is to operate programs and services for women and children who have and are experiencing oppressions such as violence, poverty and homelessness. Nellie's is a community based feminist organization, which operates within an anti-racist, anti-oppression framework. We are committed to social change through education and advocacy, to achieve social justice for all women and children.
Over 40 years ago, a group of women activists, one of whom was June Callwood, realized that in the city of Toronto there were only 40 beds available for homeless women and over 400 beds for homeless men. Moved to action by this inequity, Nellie's shelter was founded in 1973 and 16 new beds became available for homeless women in the city of Toronto. The shelter was named after Nellie McClung, the pioneer feminist who challenged the Canadian Government in the Supreme Court of Canada to have women declared persons under the law.

War Child envisions a world where no child knows war.
War Child's mission is to help children in war-affected communities reclaim their childhood through access to education, opportunity and justice. War Child takes an active role in raising public awareness around the impact of war on communities and the shared responsibility to act.
War violates every right of a child. Children face death, maiming, sexual violence and recruitment as child soldiers. War Child has worked in conflict areas since 1999.

CP24 CHUM CHRISTMAS WISH
The CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish was originally established in 1966 as CHUM's Kid's Crusade Foundation, for the purpose of assisting children in need and children's charities. In 2008, the program became known as the CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish.
The CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish program has become one of the largest distributors of toys to children in need in the Greater Toronto Area. The program also provides financial assistance to hundreds of agencies, ensuring that hundreds of thousands of children across the GTA enjoy a holiday experience. In 2015, the CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish in conjunction with Toronto Social Services assisted approximately 300,000 people in need through toy and financial support.

We look forward to continuing to support these organizations with fundraising, awareness campaigns, and clothing / toy drives.
Some of the proceeds of every purchase from One Fire Clothing will be donated to these amazing organizations, and to further our future Projects of Peace.

As a community support and Outreach worker, it is with big pleasure to write about our experience with One Fire Movement.
One Fire movement came to Nellie's around 10 years ago, to the shelter and to the community Support and Outreach space bringing joy and happiness not just through donations but music and beautiful vibes from everyone.
For 5 years One fire movement organized a party for mothers day; putting together a big group of musicians and artists for all the mothers in Nellie's community.
In 2016 Nellie's Children camp didn't get any school supplies, One Fire Movement organized an event in order to get the children school supplies, back packs and wonderful support letters from the other children.
They have been organizing fundraisings in several occasions, running with Nellie's staff on the Scotiabank Marathon, singing and bringing love with and for Nellie's, organizing a donation drive for diapers and baby formula for the numerous children at the Shelter.
Year after year these teams are strong partners in the healing process for the women and children we serve.
They are truly a big support team. Truly an inspiration, and they have the spirit of community engagement.
Thank you so much for everything you do

Dear One Fire Movement,
On behalf of the 51st Annual CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your extremely generous donation to the program. Your continued support and generosity is a true reflection of the spirit of the season.
We were thrilled and overwhelmed by the ongoing support of One Fire Movement in raising countless toys for children in need.
The CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish has become one of the largest distributors of toys to those in need in the Greater Toronto Area and because of your support of the 51st Annual CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish, we had another extremely successful season.
Through the support of corporate and individual donors, we hope to continue to assist those in need for many years to come. We wish you all the best in 2018 and hope we can count on your support for the 52nd Annual CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish.
Thank you for helping to give a kid a Christmas!
