Help former Vancouver Island Crisis Society volunteer, Karen Karsten, raise funds for the Society!

Karen is selling the popular Weddingstar smile mask, which is three-ply and features ear loops and a metal nose pinch. It is super-comfortable and durable. The cost is $12 per mask, of which $4.00 is donated to the Crisis Society. Postage is charged at $1.50 for the first mask and $0.50 for each additional mask in the same order. Please email Karen at to place your order and to arrange to pay her via e-transfer.

What a difference a smile makes! Thank you, Karen! 😊❤
