The Button Gal (formerly Ironworks Press) has been a proud corporate sponsor of Hair Donation Ottawa since 2013.
We provide them with pinback buttons and other custom merchandise for promoting awareness of their cause. We also set up a kids' DYI button making table at the annual events, with the exception of last year due to our relocation from Ottawa to Oakville, and of course, this year due to COVID-19. We hope to be able to return to Ottawa to participate in next year's event if it can be held live.
Hair Donation Ottawa is an annual, non-profit, cancer research fundraiser for the CHEO Foundation. The event was founded in 2011 by community philanthropist and cancer survivor Helene Hutchings (my former neighbour, and friend who I coincidently share the same last name and lived in the same neighbourhood).
Having passed the planning baton to the CHEO Foundation and a team of volunteer committee members in 2019, CHEO is thrilled to continue the tradition and celebrate the 10th anniversary, presented by National Bank of Canada with the first ever virtual/DIY edition of the event this year!
The Button Gal will be delivering a new batch of pinback buttons for this year's participant bags showcasing the new re-designed Hair Donation Ottawa logo. This is a wonderful cause! Please donate if you can.
