At LXR we know and appreciate how important trees are for the planet and for the health and wellbeing of its inhabitants. . For these reasons, we have teamed up with One Tree Planted to combat the effects of deforestation and climate change. One Tree Planted is an organization that plants one tree for every dollar donated to their cause. With the support of LXR customers and employees, we've been able to donate more than $6000 so far, which will add 6,000+ trees to forests across Canada and the United States.
Approximately 40% of women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. Cancer does not discriminate, and unfortunately many mothers who find themselves financially struggling or who are without adequate support are hit especially hard. Thanks to the Nanny Angel Network, LXR has been able to raise more than $26,000 for mothers with cancer in an effort to alleviate some of the struggles that they face on a daily basis. This donation will provide more than 2,600 meals to moms and their families. One less meal to worry about means mothers can spend more quality time with their children.
LGBT YouthLine is a Queer, Trans, Two-Spirit* youth-led organization that affirms and supports the experiences of youth (29 and under) across Ontario, Canada.

Our donation will support over 600 vulnerable youth in the form of call/chatline support, partnering with LGBT YouthLine we are committed to providing anonymous peer support, referrals, training , and resources to those that need it most.
La Rue des Femmes is a non-profit organization that welcomes and cares for women who are in a state of homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless.
