Thank you for your GivingTuesday Generosity!

December 11, 2015

2015 was the biggest GivingTuesday ever! Millions of Canadians from every province and territory came together and gave their support to Canadian charities. On GivingTuesdsay, there was a reported donation lift of 32%-400%!

GivingTuesday was the kick-off to our annual giving campaign and we are grateful to you for helping make it a great success! Thanks to you, the Vancouver International Children’s Festival raised $8,500! With your generous donations, we are able to bring 7 classes to the Festival through our Adopt a Class program, or 136 low income families to the Festival through our Good Neighbours program. We can also continue our Hospital Outreach program that brings the fun of the festival to children’s care facilities across the lower mainland, spreading a little good cheer to those who need it most.

The Vancouver Christmas Tree Lighting last Friday was also a great success. We invited all of our generous public and private donors and those who have supported our giving campaigns and programs to the event. We hope you were able to attend.

If you missed the event, be sure to visit Jack Poole Plaza during the holiday season as the four magnificent Christmas trees, one of which is 50 feet tall, will be lit until the first week in January.

Once again, thank you for supporting the Vancouver International Children’s Festival in 2016. Together, we are making a difference to some very deserving kids in the Lower Mainland.
