#LocalLove Mother’s Day Contest

Hey Urchins!

This mother’s day we wanted to do something big.

So we had the brilliant idea to team up with some other amazing local businesses to bring you a Mother’s Day Giveaway! Because Mother’s Day isn’t just one day, it’s everyday.

Since we are a local business ourselves we couldn’t wait to get together with some others. These local businesses are just as passionate and hardworking as us and we want to help them show off! Trust us, you’ll want to win this prize. It will have you trotting all over Ottawa trying out some of the best local businesses in town!
