Are we in your area?
During this time of crisis for all Canadian hospitals, your support of SickKids Foundation has never been more important.
SickKids has been closely monitoring the developments related to the COVID-19 situation. Health and safety for all is the top priority and we want to ensure our community is protected.
As a result, we have temporarily suspended all door-to-door, mall and venue fundraising activities.
SickKids fundraisers will always be wearing a SickKids-branded lanyard with an ID tag around their neck for easy identification.
You’ll see them carry a SickKids-branded tablet bag and wear a SickKids shirt, jacket or vest. During the winter, they may also wear a SickKids toque and branded gloves.
All monthly donor information will be captured on their tablet and they will never accept or ask for cash donations.
While speaking with donors, fundraisers have been trained to follow all public health guidelines including:
- Keeping a safe 2 metre distance while talking to people
- Wearing a face mask for safety, using hand sanitizers and disinfecting wipes to clean all items they touch
- Ensuring the entire process is touchless - your welcome package will now be mailed to you
- Canvassers who are fundraising in green, yellow and orange zones also reside in those communities
Yes, as a SickKids monthly donor, you will receive a welcome package in the mail and exclusive updates featuring behind the scenes videos on the impact of your gift.
You will also receive ongoing updates on the ground-breaking innovations your monthly gifts support.
