Global Grammas give love to CHV’s young people

Not everyone is lucky enough to have a Gramma! So Global Grammas have a partnership with Covenant House Vancouver to assist the ‘forgotten grandchildren’ who either don’t have grandparents or whose grandparents are not able or willing to support them.

“Global Gramma” Catherine Wayne of BC Canada initiated a charitable foundation at the suggestion of her granddaughter Edda, who is the inspiration behind the Edda Melkorka book series. Edda, who was given a choice about what to do with book sale proceeds, wanted to help other kids who didn’t have “Grammas.”

With the Edda Melkorka book proceeds, Catherine creates ‘Home Start-Up Kits’ for Covenant House to distribute to homeless youth who are being transitioned to stable accommodation.

Each Home Start-Up Kit includes essentials like pots, pans, dishes, linens and most importantly a personalized letter, “To Sweetie Love Gramma Letter NEW” letter which is full of love and friendly advice from ‘Gramma’ Catherine.

Work through the foundation encourages other ‘Grammas’ and ‘Grampas’, particularly those who are downsizing, to donate practical home and kitchen items to youth who would be grateful to receive them. For more information or to get involved contact  the  Global  Grammas.
