Ways to Give

 

Our online donations are processed through CanadaHelps - a self-funded charity dedicated to increasing charitable giving across Canada. Because CanadaHelps is a non-profit, their fees are a fraction of for-profit alternatives so your donation dollars go further.

 

All donations over $10 will be issued a tax receipt.

Donation of Goods

A gift in kind is a donation of goods or services that can be used to support a charitable cause or organization. This type of contribution takes the form of tangible items such as food, clothing, furniture, educational books and materials, medical supplies and other physical goods.

As we are a non-profit organization run solely by volunteers, we will need not be able to cover the delivery/shipping costs of the donations.

We may be able to make arrangements for a pick-up/drop-off.

Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any enquiries or any other gift ideas.

Art Supplies

Art in education is very important and has so many benefits. It helps with creativity, motor skills, confidence, visual learning, and the list goes on! To see a detailed list, you can read “10 Reasons Why Arts in Education is So Important for Kids” by Learning Liftoff.

Some suggestions for art supplies include: paint, paintbrushes, crayons, pencil crayons, pencil sharpeners, markers, chalk, gluesticks, construction paper, sketchbooks and pads, scissors, etc.

Sporting Equipment

Kids love being kids and they love to play! Give them a ball and they’ll have a blast. Due to luggage capacity limits, we ask that all balls are deflated in order for us to bring with us.  If you have larger donation items (i.e. baseball bats, racquets, etc.), please contact us directly to see if we can accept them.

Medical Supplies

We accept small medical supplies that can be carried in our luggage, such as rub-on anti-inflammatory medication (i.e. Voltaren, BENGAY), bandaids, pain relievers and cold medications. Due to safety reasons, expired medication cannot be accepted.

 

Larger supplies, such as crutches and wheelchairs are accepted as well. Please reach out to us if you have these items to donate.

Digital Camera

We are running a photography workshop with the students from our school in Cité Soleil. We will be teaching them the basics of a digital camera and have them use it as a form of creative expression.

Digital cameras must be in working order as we do not have the funds for repair. Please include the camera battery and appropriate cables. SD cards are appreciated as well.

Shoes/Sandals

Your gift of shoes can go miles.  Shoes are always in high demand and very important. With extreme poverty, a pair of shoes is a luxury.

It protects them from various diseases (i.e. soil-borne, parasitic) and injuries. And since their common mode of transportation is by walking only and they usually have to travel far, a pair of shoes can also help children attend school and enable people to travel for work.

Hygiene Items

While extremely simple at face value, items such as toothpaste, soap and shampoo can go a long way for those in need of the many benefits of regular personal hygiene and can make a major difference in their lives.
