How do we do this?
Jordan purchases hundreds of licensed, 500mL bottles of hand sanitizer from the North of 7 distillery. He then purchases thousands of 60mL spray bottles from a bottle supplier. Then thousands of bottle labels are printed by OttawaScene. The work commences, labelling, filling, capping and sorting thousands of bottles every month. They are placed in boxes of 100-200 each and then sent to Dale to be distributed among 25 drivers on demand. Our online web application allows drivers to self-assign deliveries instantly after they are assigned a bottle count by our moderators. It is working like clockwork!
How to apply for a bottle
- Fill out the form.
- We decide whether you’re high need. Supplies are limited, and we’re reserving bottles for the people who are most vulnerable.
- You receive an automated email when your delivery is assigned to a driver and when it is completed.
- We thoroughly disinfect your bottle upon delivery. The last thing to touch your bottle is a disinfecting wipe or alcohol spray.
- If you live in a house, we leave your bottle in your mailbox or outside your front door. If you live in a multi-unit building, we call or text you to come outside to receive your bottle.
- Use in conjunction with frequent hand washing.
- Stay safe and spread a little kindness!
In Memory of My Brother, Paul Harding 1980-2018
Before my brother Paul Harding passed away suddenly, on December 5, 2018, I had the opportunity to spend the last few days of his life with him. During this time, he said, “I just want to leave a positive impact on the world.”
This is for you big brother.
~ Jordan Harding
Jordan founded HandSan.ca. He is a web application developer. After securing sources for an unlimited supply of hand sanitizer and 60mL spray bottles, he built a web application to manage thousands of orders and deliveries, we are now delivering hundreds of bottles every day. Jordan owes his focus to his late brother, who tragically died in December of 2018. His brother “just wanted to leave a positive impact on the world”
Operations Director/Managing Partner
Dale Hammond is a managing partner and oversees all the operations of our vast delivery network. We could not keep up with the demand without Dale! Dale is Jordan’s oldest friend in Ottawa. Together, they are undeniably, an unstoppable force when it comes to doing good for the community.
How do you make your sanitizer?
We don’t make it! We purchase it in licensed, 500mL bottles from the North of 7 Distillery on St. Laurent in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. We have bought more $13,000 worth so far!
What is the recipe for your sanitizer?
It’s not “our” sanitizer. We purchase our sanitizer in 500mL bottles from the North of 7 Distillery in Ottawa. They follow the WHO guidelines. We DO NOT recommend making it yourself.
Where can I find a lot of sanitizer?
If you need a larger quantity, we recommend contacting the distillery we buy our sanitizer from, The North of 7 Distillery.
Where do you find your bottles?
Our plastic spray bottles are purchased from WTFLab Inc.. Tell Scott Jordan sent you! Great guy!
What if I'm outside ottawa?
Unfortunately, we are only able to provide free bottles of hand sanitizer to recipients within Ottawa. If you aren’t sure what that means, please take a look at this map.
Can I start doing this in my city?
Sure you can! Apply for a license from Health Canada and go from there!
I need A LOT of bottles! Can you help?
We are currently able to provide up to 100 bottles to organizations that serve the people we’re trying to reach.
