Help Us Support Zack’s Dream Room!

Zack's Dream Room

On March 10, 2011 the world lost a precious little boy. Although only 3 years old, Zackie Hamilton touched many hearts in his short life and we ask that you please read about his remarkable story here


Zack's Dream RoomAlong with the incredible staff of the paediatric ward of York Central Hospital, the Hamilton family is on a mission to raise $25,000 to create a room to honour Zackie’s memory. Elmo was his favourite character, and though he was non-verbal, he could hum Elmo’s song. The themed room at YCH would be a place of comfort for children in a place where no child should have to spend time. A respite, a room filled with happiness and love.

And we need your help to create it.

Along with our friends Jennifer Gilbert of Naturally Beautiful Photography , Alexandria Durrell of Clippo and of course Zackie’s mom Heather Hamilton tjzmommy , Mums ‘n Chums is co-hosting a fabulous Twitter party via SoConnected on Saturday, April 30 from 8 to 11 p.m. EST, and we hope you’ll be joining us!

I founded Mums 'n Chums in 2009 after realizing that the area I live in was drastically underserviced as compared to surrounding areas for support and activities for growing families. Mums 'n Chums grew popular very quickly and I have been dedicated to nurturing that growth through frequent networking, social media engagement and in person meetups. By the end of its first year, Mums 'n Chums had close to 500 members and was receiving regular inquiries from fans outside of its service area, asking when we would be expanding to serve them as well. After much careful research and polling, I expanded the site in May of 2011 to cover the entire North end of the GTA (from Cambridge to Markham), areas I believe are still receiving far less attention than they deserve from other sites and family services. We also changed the focus from small scale local mom and tot meetups to more of an informative purpose, closing down our forum and adding several talented contributors to the blog. We do still offer several large scale family events per year, such as our popular Birthday Bash events and our Holiday Bash in December. Our contests have also become a member favourite, and we strive to offer amazing prizes from trusted brands like Babies R Us, La Roche Posay, Johnson's Baby and many more. In March of 2016, after months of work spent migrating all of the site's content to a new platform, Mums 'n Chums re-launched with its fresh, new look. The changes and expansion have proven a great success and we're still getting inquiries from several other cities within the Greater Toronto Area, whom we have decided to serve as well. I have built this site and its' reputation carefully and look forward to continuing its growth!
