The Holiday Give Back

‘Tis the season of giving and we here at Volumes of Space take it very seriously!

While there are so many worthy causes and we encourage you to find one that resonates with you and consider donating your time, money (or both) if you’re able, there are a few that are near and dear to our hearts.


The mission of the Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington is to “empower children and youth by connecting families with opportunities to build hope for lifelong change and break the cycle of poverty.”

Ways we support this organization:

ShineBRIGHT Ambassador

We help raise money and awareness of the growing need in the community. Over 25,000 children and youth across Guelph, Dufferin and Wellington are supported by The Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington’s various programs that provide opportunities in the hard times to help each child grow, explore and unleash their great potential to build brighter futures.


After being matched with a family in need, we gather gifts for the various family members in order to make the holidays shine a little brighter, bringing hope and joy during the holiday season for a deserving family in the community.

HOPE House operates and advocates on the belief that poverty, food insecurity, inequality, health and community are all interconnected. They offer services and programs that challenge the stigmas surrounding poverty and allow community members to maintain their dignity and choice, while simultaneously providing them with tactile skills developed in a community environment, creating long-term skills that facilitate self-sufficiency.

How we support this organization:

Christmas JOY Home Tour

We participate in the Christmas JOY Home Tour by decorating a home that is included in the tour. People from all over Southwestern Ontario come to Guelph each year to surround themselves with the holiday spirit on this self-guided tour of carefully selected, professionally decorated homes. Funds raised through the tour support HOPE House in their delivery of compassionate care to members of the community.

We hope you consider supporting an organization in your community not just during the holiday season, but year-round. The joy received from giving back is pretty hard to beat!
