It’s that time of year: time for the mad-dash through the bustling shopping centres that marks the beginning of the holiday season.
This year, SickKids Foundation provides an alternative to battling the crowds of shoppers to find that unique and special gift. It offers two gift-giving programs so you can be sure to cross a few people off your shopping list.
SickKids Foundation has partnered with some extraordinary retailers to offer you an easy and convenient way to shop and support SickKids Foundation at the same time. Each of the retailers have committed to donating a portion of their sales to the Foundation on select products.
On the Shop SickKids website you will find retailers including:
- Bravery Hearts – Gorgeous glass-beaded jewelry that support Bravery Bead programs at children’s hospitals across North America;
- Ital Florist – Meets all floral needs with creative flower arrangements;
- Peter & Paul’s – Offers luxurious corporate and personal gift baskets; and
- Suetables – Silver-plated heart and star holiday ornaments, as well as hand-crafted sterling silver jewelry.
SickKids Get Better Gifts is a brand new program to SickKids Foundation. The exclusive online catalogue of symbolic gifts features one-of-a-kind items that truly make an impact to children and families in The Hospital for Sick Children.
The process is simple. Select a gift from one of the four categories: Like Home for the Holidays, Support a SickKids Family, Playful Healing and Enabling Equipment. Once you’ve chosen the perfect gift, head to the checkout and select whether you’d like to e-mail or print a card of your choice. You can personalize the card to that special someone and it will include a description of the gift you’ve purchased on their behalf.
With gifts ranging from $25 to $5,000, you’ll be sure to find something in your price range. It’s the gift that gives twice with all purchases supporting the most critical needs of the Hospital.
