It’s all about your Kids

Carswell Camily Foundation Logo 300x132.jpgThe Carswell Family Foundation has generously donated $50,000 to the Walk for Memories as a matching campaign.
From November 1st December 31st, The Carswell Family Foundation will match all donations up to $50k to all of our youth (3-17) fundraisers.

Alzheimer Society Toronto is taking on a new initiative in 2018: Teaching kids about charity.

The power of giving can be rewarding for both parents and the children. Learning about giving and helping others provides children a feeling of empowerment in an uncertain world where unexpected and frightening events happen. A great way to reinforce charitable values is to make giving a family activity. It is especially important to teach young ones that they are part of a larger community, and that we are responsible for everyone around us. By giving the value of charity a central role in the family dynamic, parents can encourage their child to grow up with a healthy sense of compassion and a strong charitable spirit.

Parents will be asked to register their children (3+) for the walk, and encourage them to fundraise.

We will send a package out to youth (3-17) (addressed to parent and child).
