Stephanie, 9, has called SickKids home for the holidays many times while in treatment for a rare intestinal condition. Stephanie can spend up to nine months of the year in the hospital, often too sick to be at home with family during the holiday season.
And she is not alone.
More than 250 children must spend the holidays at SickKids. With needle pokes and treatments mixed with presents and festive family dinners, the staff at SickKids work hard to make the most of this magical time of year.
Help make your gift-giving dollars count this year by giving SickKids Get Better Gifts to your loved ones. With every gift given you are supporting the most critical needs of The Hospital for Sick Children, including the programs that help make the holiday season a little brighter.
Browse the SickKids Get Better Gifts catalogue and choose from a wide-range of gifts at every price point. From A Stocking Surprise, Decorations for the Hospital to A Holiday Meal for a Family, there is something special for everyone on your list. Once you’ve chosen your gift, select a card, PDF card or e-card to send along with your gift to your family member, colleague, teacher or friend.

It’s that time of the year again! Snow is beginning to fall, festive lights line the streets and holiday displays are appearing in store front windows. This can only mean one thing: time to start putting together that holiday shopping list. Well you’re in luck. This year, SickKids has some great holiday campaigns with local retailers that will make your holiday shopping a snap.
On now, and running until December 12, all Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, and West Elm locations will be accepting donations on behalf of SickKids Foundation at cash registers. In addition, all Pottery Barn locations are selling tree ornaments, with a portion of the sales going to the Hospital. Pop in to one of these great locations to make a donation or to purchase your special ornament and spread the holiday cheer!
Also on now, to celebrate the spirit of the season is a limited edition Tiffany bracelet complete with its own unique GPS Yorkdale charm. All proceeds will support SickKids Foundation. To purchase your bracelet or to learn more, please visit http://www.yorkdale.com/gift-certificates/.
For the month of December, the LCBO will be inviting its customers to make a donation to SickKids Foundation at cash registers at locations throughout Ontario. Now let’s be honest, there is a good chance most of us will be visiting an LCBO before the end of the holidays so why not contribute to a great cause?
