We rely on and welcome donations of baby items and gifts in gender neutral colours. Each gift basket is 100% FREE to a new family and made possible through generous donations. Click on the GoFundMe link for a monetary donation or check out our Amazon Wish List for an up-to-date list of items we are running low on and would like to include in the baskets

 

We are very grateful to these local mompreneurs and companies for their time and generous donations to our baskets.

Please support them as they support us.

321 Joy.jpg

Karyn is mom to four incredible little boys! She describes life as crazy, hectic, a little bit stressful, but more than anything full of joy! She chose "321Joy" as the name of her store for a couple of reasons. Her oldest little boy has Down syndrome, which occurs when there are 3 copies of the 21st chromosome, hence 321! And "Joy"...well, that is self explanatory! Karyn donated some awesome onsies to the baskets to help our littles rock their extra chromosome.
