On Sunday, October 25 volunteers from both Chrysalis and the Gateway Association were at Homes Alive Pets to engage in a Cash Mob for the store.
Homes Alive Pets, located right across from Chrysalis, is a pet supply store which promotes inclusive hiring as they employ a Chrysalis client.
As they support our client, the intent of a #CashMob was to support that business by drawing people in, in a finite period (two hours in this case), to flood their sales during the event. The event was promoted to our staff and families, and all of our social networks. We are proud to report that during the event they surpassed sales of $3,700 in a two hour period!
“We are overwhelmed by the support that was shown to us. I just want to thank you, to Chrysalis and their friends [at Gateway],” stated Leon Ropp, store owner. “I appreciate the work that you do and I want to encourage that you keep doing it.”
Homes Alive Pets is an independent store which is part of two stores operated by the Ropp family. The family runs a store in Lethbridge, the one in Edmonton on St. Albert Trail, plus they have an online store to serve their customers as well.

On behalf of the Gateway Association, Chrysalis is proud and grateful for all the support during the #CashMob for inclusion in the work environment for people with disabilities.
