Campaign Description

Stresscase celebrates and nurtures a growing army of caregivers committed to self care for optimal mental health.




One difficult night, my 15 year-old daughter and I realized that we were burning out, caring for a loved one while completely neglecting ourselves.  

My daughter said, "Mom, we should do something nice for people like us."  And that's how Stresscase came to be...

Stresscase self care packs introduce the concept of self care with the basic sentiment of "make time for yourself". By sourcing naturally crafted, locally made relaxation products for our packs, and collaborating with other social enterprises, we bring value and meaning to our product.

In 30 years, the caregiver population will have doubled.  This is our opportunity to become strong capable caregivers. As we grow, we donate 5% of our online revenue ($1.25 per self care pack) to intitiatives that support Caregivers such as the Canadian Mental Health Association's Peer Workshops. 

Stresscase is inviting businesses to join our self care movement by purchasing a quantity of self care packs as gifts for their employees and clients.  Stresscase will customize the messaging inside the self care packs to reflect the corporate brand and culture of each business.  Engage your whole workplace in self care!

Stresscase is offering delivery of single self care packs in time for Mothers Day. 

We are also collaborating with local start ups, Cooking by Kim and Echo Clean, to offer a “Cook Clean and Chill” experience as another reward.

Products and Services

Subscribers to “Stresscase” receive monthly self care packs: “Stresscases” containing natural curated relaxation products made locally, with inspired messaging inside.  

Single/one time Stresscase customers receive the option of personalized messaging with a "menu" of themed self care packs.

Corporations, schools, teams, and not-for-profit organizations can create custom-themed self care packs to use for fundraising, and recognition initiatives.

Funding Goals: Stresscase Needs You as Much as You need Stresscase

The funds we raise with the ATB BoostR will boost us out of "beta" mode.  We will use the funds to hire a sales and marketing team, gain access to a broader range of local and natural relaxation products, and manifest the more practical fulfilment facilities and cost-effective shipping solutions.  Most importantly we will raise funds to support initiatives that support caregivers such as the Canadian Mental Health Association.
