Alex Clegg

“Shortly after Alex came into our lives we received the most thoughtful package from Kushies and CAN Fund. Being first time parents, baby stuff can be extremely overwhelming! It was great to know that our little guy was dressed in all-Canadian made high quality clothes. Alex will be a Kushies baby for years to come! I have a feeling that his Zolo will be with him until he goes to college”

“It was so thoughtful for Kushies to send such a nice package of gifts for my baby Isabella. Everything is so well made and it’s so nice to have a quality baby brand in Canada. Isabella has loved playing with her stuffed Zolo Fuzzi octopus toy! Thank you CAN Fund and Kushies for working together to help support the next generation of Olympians!”

“What a wonderful surprise for us to find a box of Kushies goodies on our door step. Thank you to CAN fund and Kushies for thinking of us! We love Kushies soft and wearable clothes. Rhys has been getting a lot of wear out of his very practical and cool hat. It’s so nice to see Canadian companies supporting Canadian athletes in their post-Olympic projects. What a thoughtful and generous thing for them to do, early support of Canada’s next generation athletes (fingers crossed for 2032 here we come!).”

We were so touched by this sweet & thoughtful gesture, to be supported in our career was wonderful but to still feel your support in this new part of our life made us feel extra special. Mia loves all the comfy clothes and especially the soft rattle! Mom & Dad love all of it but especially the water resistant receiving blanket ? it’s perfect for diaper changing. Thanks a million we love you back!”

“As new Parents we can’t express enough how grateful we are for help. With out the help of organizations like CAN Fund and Kushies everything would not function as smoothly. We were both so excited when I returned from Florida training camp to find a BIG smile on Mylanie’s face, a beautiful baby girl, and a big box from Kushies. We both absolutely love everything we got from Kushies the material is so nice to touch so I know Layla loves being in it. Her photo shows she is happy to wear her cute little outfits. We both can’t begin to thank CAN Fund and Kushies enough you really do truly care about Canadian Athletes. THANK YOU VERY MUCH”

“Thank you Canadian Athlete Now Fund and Kushies! What a great surprise to receive a package for Liam only a few days after I got back from the hospital.

“So often people focus on athletic performance and forget about the other aspects of an athlete’s life. As a father of two, my family is of the utmost importance and they inspire me to become better each and every day, at home and on the water. It was a great surprise to get a package in the mail that was for my young daughter. This generous gift from Kushies really showed that they understand success relies on support for myself and my family as a whole.”

“Thank you so much for sending us the gifts from Kushies! The waterproof bibs with sleeves and rainsuits that were given so generously to us have been key in keeping our 18 month old twins dry. They are very messy and love to jump in puddles! You can imagine how many times they need to be changed in a day. With these bibs and rainsuits, I am doing a little less laundry each day:) They are awesome!”h4>

“Richard and I retired from elite sport before we became parents, and even though our little guy is only 7 weeks old, it’s amazing to see organizations go above and beyond supporting athletes during their athletic careers and after! Thanks so much to CAN Fund and Kushies for the amazing care package that arrived two weeks after our son was born. Love that a Canadian company is supporting Canadian athletes in this way!”

“Having a little one adds a little more crazy to an athlete’s busy life. The support from Kushies made it possible for me to spend my spare time with Lucy and Rebecca instead of running around trying to get her set up for the first few months. Lucy has loved her Kushies since day 1”

“As a new mom there is one thing I’m sure about, “I don’t know what’s going to happen next”. That’s why I was so happy to receive the care package from Kushies. It is always my first stop when I realize (too late) that Luke could use a bib, toothbrush, blankie etc., and I always find what I need. Thank you for your continued support of Canadian athletes as we trade in our skates and ski’s for strollers and car seats!”

David Calder

Wife, Rachel and their daughter, Mira and son, Bowen

“It seems like whenever things are at their very worst, and the next mortgage payment is no where in sight, CAN Fund comes through in a big way. I will never forget when we had our first child, and all we had were hand-me-downs, and one day a huge box showed up at the door full of Kushies clothes and toys which totally made us feel like we didn’t have to live below the poverty line in order to represent Canada.”

Oskar Johannson

Tor Johannson

“Tor absolutely loves his Kushies “Splish…” blanket. He sports it every day when it is not in the wash. Mommy loves the 100% organic cotton fabric and baby blue tones that match his eyes. Daddy loves the imagery and thinks it is fitting for his little sailor-to-be. Thank you very much for the box of baby goodies. We really appreciate the support for the next chapter of our lives.”

“Thank you Kushies for our ‘surprise’ package!!! Comfortable, durable, and cute clothing can make a parent so happy… especially when our children spit up, eat with their hands, and crawl into spaces they’re not supposed to! Thank you for taking the time to think of our families and understanding that our children are our real ‘Gold Medals’.”
