Ottawa lice removal with a fundraising twist (sponsored*)

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Fishbowl patrons|Sponsored posts

Awhile back I wrote a post about lice removal service here in Ottawa that happens to be handily close to where we live in Westboro. We’ve had kids with lice. Teens with lice. I’ve known parents with lice in the neighbourhood too. I’m relieved to know there’s a place we can go when we need help.

I think a lot of you already know about Lice Services Canada – Ottawa Lice Treatment and Removal and their expert services, but what you may not know is that they’ve introduced a twist to their services which will definitely be of interest to parents of school-age children here in Ottawa. This new program does two things: it gets expert information about lice right into the teachers’ and caregivers’ hands AND helps the school raise extra some funds.

If your school is registered with Lice Services Canada, 10% of sales of lice removal services (even during the summer!) and $5 from their pesticide-free products will go back to YOUR school. It’s really a win-win for all… except the lice, because THEY ARE HISTORY. Families get expert help when they really need it, and the schools get a little something as well.

Interested? It’s easy. Just send an email to your school principal or parent council, because they need to be the ones who register on the Lice Services Canada website. Once the school is registered, they’ll start getting the word out to parents. That’s it! If you don’t need the services, great. But if you do, it’s nice to know your school is getting something back, isn’t it?

And whether your school is registered or not, you should know that if you find something in your kid’s scalp and you’re not sure if it’s a louse or not, you can always take a picture and email it to Lice Services Canada for a free diagnosis.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
