Are you looking for an exciting way to support your local businesses and give back to community in a unique way? GenNext’s new event series – Take Home TBay – is the perfect opportunity for you to get involved and show your #LocalLove for community!

The GenNext Take Home TBay campaign will feature a variety of partnerships with various local businesses throughout 2021 to offer a product or experience that will engage and support our local community. Take Home TBay aims to support local businesses while simultaneously making an impact for a better tomorrow with a portion of all proceeds being donated back to the community through the United Way.

These experiences will happen every other month , beginning in February, and will range from a fun family/couple’s paint night where you can showcase your creativity with loved ones, a home cooking kit to prepare a delicious home cooked meal, or even a game night kit to bring out some competition and fun amongst players!


February Edition:

For this month, we are excited to partner with The Creative to offer you a fun painting experience where you can showcase your artistic skills! Take Home TBay & have fun painting YOUR own Gnome Masterpiece!!


This Design was originally painted by Canadian Artist Steve Gerow and comes complete with everything you need to paint anywhere!

Choose to paint this kit yourself OR do it with family, friends and co-workers! This is a great opportunity to pick up a painting kit, and have a virtual get together to stay connected! This kit also provides a fun activity as a paint night date night for Valentines Day or with your family to celebrate Family Day together.

Painting Kitz will be available until Feb 28 for $35.00 & comes with the following…

  • All the Colours you see in Original
  • 12×16 Screen Printed Canvas
  • Quality brush set
  • Paper Plate

By purchasing a Gnome themed painting kit from The Creative, $7 from each kit sold will be donated back to United Way of Thunder Bay.


Share your creation and/or painting party on social media for a chance to WIN a CreativeKit from The Creative – you  must use the hashtags #TakeHomeTBay and #CreativeKitz, and tag @GenNextTB & @thecreativekitz on Facebook or @creativekitz on Instagram!

Pay It Forward – If you want to give back even more, select the ‘Pay It Forward’ kit option. All ‘Pay It Forward’ painting kits will be donated to United Way partner agencies so that their clients and children in need can also enjoy this fun activity! This month we have selected OUR KIDS COUNT as the charity of choice!! PLUS – have DOUBLE the impact as The Creative Kitz will donate 1 EXTRA painting kit for every one that is purchased and donated! So 1 Pay It Forward Purchase = 2 Gnome Painting Kitz for others to enjoy who would maybe not be able to afford them themselves.

STAY TUNED for our future collaborations with The Creative as we will be featuring a Take Home TBay spring, fall AND winter gnome seasonal collection painting kit partnership throughout this year.

We believe that there is an artist inside of everyone, just waiting to be explored!
