Grounds for Coffee

Grounds for Coffee is a Sponsor of Leading Moms 2017.

Grounds for coffee was a child of the ‘90s – minus the jelly shoes. In 1992, our President and Founder, Dan Hilton, decided to make a 180-degree turn in his career: from banking to baking. He started Grounds for Coffee in 1993, as Vancouver’s coffee culture was beginning to pick up steam, and settled into the business of developing a knock-out cinnamon bun recipe from scratch.And that’s exactly what he did. Nearly a quarter-century later, Grounds for Coffee sells its cinnamon buns, which are still made by hand with locally-sourced ingredients, to hundreds of locations across B.C. and Alberta.

We are committed to providing the finest-quality food and beverages for our customers, and a cozy neighborhood haven in which to enjoy them. We’re also committed to maintaining a happy and healthy team of employees, which is why we’ve built exceptional employee benefits into our business.

Since 2012, One Girl Can has invested in rehabilitating four schools in Kenya and Uganda and has built much-needed classrooms, science labs, dormitories, washrooms and libraries. There are currently 130 high achieving girls raised in extreme poverty, on secondary school scholarships and 63 girls in university pursuing degrees that will lead to lucrative careers.

Over the next 10 years, One Girl Can will provide scholarships that will see 1000 skilled and competent young women graduate from university and embark on careers in a diverse array of professions, from teaching and nursing to civil engineering and business management.

The secondary scholarship program will cultivate hundreds of determined and confident girls, capable of critical decision-making and independent thinking and give them an increased chance at attending university. All of them will help lift their families out of poverty and begin to shift the needle on economic growth as well as gender imbalance and injustice towards women — an issue that is so prevalent in the developing world.

skoah is a Sponsor of Leading Moms 2018.

Personal training for your skin is “what skoah does” and represents skoah’s comprehensive approach to skin care. The aim of personal training for your skin is to provide customers with an effective, easy-to-understand skin care program that generates lasting results. 100% Canadian, all skoah products are made and produced in Vancouver, beautiful British Columbia.

simply powerful skin care

When it comes to skin care there is the constant debate of natural products versus science-based products. skoah®’s skin care products are more nature than science, but take the best from both. They are more natural than a lot of ‘natural’ product lines, devoid of low quality substitutes and loaded with top quality ingredients. The base oil in skoah creams is polysilane, a highly refined olive oil, rather than the frequently used petroleum by-products. skoah products also contain botanical extracts, natural minerals, bio-actives, organic compounds and powerful active ingredients – letting nature help to protect and nourish your skin.

Eaton Arrowsmith

Eaton Arrowmith is a Sponsor of Leading Moms 2018.

At Eaton Arrowsmith we teach our students a series of exercises to help them strengthen their brains and address the cognitive weaknesses that cause their specific learning difficulties.

All of our schools operate on the principle of neuroplasticity – the brain’s ability to be strengthened over time with targeted training. This sets us apart from other learning intervention programs. Traditionally, a student who struggled with handwriting, for example, would learn to use a keyboard or be given more time to write tests.

We don’t teach students to work around their difficulties; we help them address them.

Over a 35-year history, Arrowsmith graduates have returned to public and private schools with an increased ability to learn. Our students go on to complete university degrees, find employment in their chosen fields, and pursue their dreams.


Sarah Lipi Videography

Sarah Lipi Videography is a Partner of Leading Moms 2017.

Award-winning creative director and filmmaker, Sarah Lipi, knew from an early age that her life would always involve a strong dose of creativity. Her journey began with graphic design at her family’s visual communications company in São Paulo, Brazil, when she was only thirteen years old. At university, she studied and earned a degree in multimedia graphics and film production and got a start in the film and television industry as a set decorator on TV advertisements. However, Sarah soon realized that her real passions were behind the lens as director, cinematographer, video editor, and photographer.
Sarah has worked on many independent productions. The Passage, her first short film, was screened at film festivals around the world, winning an award at the Canada International Film Festival. She also won the best cinematography award at the L.A. Web Festival for her work on the web series The Last Fall of Ashes, directed by Aaron Wrintrigham. Her photography exhibitions have been featured at the Gibsons Public Art Gallery, Vivo Media Art Center, and other galleries in British Columbia.

Recently, Sarah founded Doc ME!, a movie company that brings families together and save that moment through a stunning movie.
