Let's turn your idea into a story you tell.
Moment Makers YYC is committed to cultivating an inclusive, safe, LGBTQ2S+, BIPOC and varied ability-friendly community. ALL are welcome. ALWAYS.
In the spirit of truth and respect, we acknowledge that we are situated in Moh’kinstsis, on traditional Treaty 7 territory, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy: Bearspaw, Wesley, Chiniki, the Stoney Nakoda nation: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, as well as the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.
Moment Makers YYC was born out of my love of surprises and my desire to make people feel seen and special. This year has been hard and crazy, and although we experienced it together, many of us are feeling disconnected and alone. I want to change that by offering safe and unique ways for folks to send a message of care to their loved ones. From being a Mama of two, to a musician, to an RMT, to an entrepreneur, much of my time has been spent either taking care of people or entertaining them. This adventure allows me to combine my experiences, compassion and creativity and spread some light around. Moment Makers has a simple mantra: Any little thing is possible. Have a friend who just finished chemo? A cousin who had a baby? A partner whose anniversary you usually forget? Whether you have an idea of your own, or you need a hand figuring out what’ll make that person’s day, we can help!
Have a whacky idea? We'll make it happen.
Remember the good old days when you had to send a telegram or human messenger in order to reach someone? Us either. We're too young for that. BUT it sure beats a friendly text message or a long-winded email.
Some people love ‘em, some hate ‘em.
But what we know from a lifetime of experience, is that even the haters appreciate a well-thought-out moment that’s curated just for them.
Pausing to celebrate has been trickier lately, and when the obvious options aren’t currently as doable and gathering a gaggle of friends in public looks pretty different, we have to get creative and keep it simple.
We had the baby shower of our dreams, thanks to Moment Makers! They planned an outdoor event (in mid October) that was warm, comfortable, and Covid-safe for all of our loved ones. Sonia was truly amazing to work with, she was professional, and she easily worked within our budget. I would definitely work with her again!
Sonia wrote a song in less than 24 hours for a coworker and I to give news to our boss. She captured the joy we wanted to share in a short song that was fun and clever. Everyone was impressed by her voice and songwriting.
Thunder Bay, ON
There really aren't words to describe the unexpected, amazing feeling of receiving Sonia's unique gift. It wasn't just a song - it felt like she was able to sum me up in the most perfect way. I absolutely couldn't help myself and shared it with everyone I knew.
