Kahlyn Lawson, Jenna Downey and Megan Gagliardi celebrated their 6th birthdays together. Instead of asking for presents they all asked friends to make a donation to the Kaitlin Hope D’Elia Fund at The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation. The girls go to school with Kaitlin’s older brother Nick, and after hearing how well The Children’s was looking after Kaitlin, they decided to dedicate the $700 they raised to Kaitlin’s ward – 6C2. Congratulations girls, on your generous and thoughtful gift. Bravo!
The Young Ambassador’s Club
The members of the Young Ambassadors’ Club know a secret: even little kids have the power to make a difference.
These young champions have chosen to give up birthday presents or organize fundraisers in their communities to help make our Hospital an even better place for sick kids to get well. We are grateful for their contributions, and very proud to have these exceptional young people representing The Children’s in their schools and neighborhoods.
You child wants to be on the wall too? Get in touch right now with Angelika!
Ayesha, a precocious 7-year-old, wanted to do something to make a difference for the young patients at The Children’s. She decided that she would ask family and friends to make a donation in honour of her birthday instead of buying her presents. Bravo Ayesha! We are very proud to have you among the friends of The Children’s!
To celebrate her First Holy Communion, Anna Sophia Castillo invited her family and friends to make a donation to The Children’s in lieu of receiving presents. She collected $160 for our young patients! Thank you, Anna Sophia, for sharing your celebration with us.
