DGS Onesies

Our favourite time of year is upon us! #onesieszn is fast approaching and we're kicking it off in true Drake-style with food fair and a good cause. On November 4th, we're suiting up across all Drake locations for our annual Onesie Brunch. We're wearing our hearts on our sleeves and showing support for the partnership between The Drake and SickKids Foundation by donning our favourite Drake General Store onesies during bustling brunch service. 10% of the day's brunch sales go straight to SickKids Foundation and this year we're proudly unveiling the exclusive design made by patient ambassadors.

If last year is any clue, this year's design will be a must-have for fireside hangs, lazy mornings, and hot chocolate sessions! Featuring beautiful hand-drawn designs, the kids were inspired by their favourite winter activities like watching movies by the fireplace, making snow angels, sledding, and skiing. 10% of sales from this special design goes to SickKids Foundation. Get your hands on your any on our onesies during Onesie weekend (November 4-5th) at Drake General Store and feel good about 10% of sales from all onesie designs going to SickKids.

The new SickKids 2017 onesie

Meet the kids and get to know them in their own words!

Amrita is 8 years old and has been a patient at SickKids since the age of 2. She has undergone many treatments to help fight against her lung and autoimmune diseases. The wonderful people at SickKids (doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, dieticians) and countless others continue to help give her the very best care. Amrita wanted to participate in the Drake General Store x SickKids Onesie Collaboration program because, "SickKids helps me so much so I like to help do something that will help raise money so they can find a cure for me and others."

Favourite Winter Activities: Watching movies by the fireplace and drinking hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows. Making snow angels and snowmen.

Luci is 9 years old but when she was 3, Luci had a bi-ventricular repair in January 2008 at SicKids. The heart surgry was supposed to take 3-4 hours and Luci's surgery ended up being 12 and a half hours. Her strong will, the incredible team at SickKids and lots of love have led Luci to become a healthy, very active and creative 9 year old. Luci wanted to participate in the collaboration because, "It's a fun craft. It's cool and I remember when I had surgery at SickKids and now I want to help others."
