After taking a hard hit to the boards in a hockey game on Saturday night, our friends’ son was airlifted to SickKids Hospital for fear of neurological damage.
Thankfully, he’s fine aside from a broken wrist.
Still, there is deep sense of relief knowing that the best healthcare for kids is within our reach.
That said, SickKids Hospital is more than just the best healthcare, though.
For example, not too long ago, a candidate engaged in a search process with us shared about how her own child was admitted to sick kids for months. She spoke so highly of the genuine care, support, and service she and her family received by the staff of the hospital while they were there. She said to us, that every year when SickKids makes their annual donor calls, she writes a cheque because she truly does believe in the holistic mission of SickKids Hospital.
According to the SickKids Hospital website, the mission of SickKids is to:
provide the best in family-centred, compassionate care, to lead in scientific and clinical advancement, and to prepare the next generation of leaders in child health.
Not only does SickKids Hospital provide medical care, but it also offers a wide range of programs and services to support children and families in many other ways. For example, the programs and services offered by SickKids Hospital include:
- Centre for Innovation and Excellence in Child and Family-Centered Care
- Child Life
- Children’s Council
- Creative Arts Therapy
- Epilepsy Classroom
- The Play Park
A charity of this magnitude, however, still relies on donations and gifts both big and small. The ways in which you can give are:
- Make a Monetary Donation
- Host a Fundraiser
- Give a Gift-in-Kind
- Share Your Time and Volunteer
- Events and Entertainment
- Support our Women’s Auxiliary (WA)
On this #CharityTuesday, consider the ways in which you or your business may be able to support this worthy cause that it is indeed making a difference within the daily lives of families.
