Tuesday, December 3, 2019 is Giving Tuesday and we’re asking you to help a child recognize the power of Sport.
Over 30 percent of Canadian youth under the age of 18 cannot afford to play organized sport. With the help of you and your generosity we’re aiming to get more kids off the sidelines, into the game, and experience the gift of sport!
How can you help? Collectively, our 2 favorite charities, Sport Central & KidSport Edmonton make participating in Sport possible for kids who would not normally have the opportunity die to financial barriers. Simply put, Sport Central helps provide the Equipment & KidSport helps provide funds for Registration.
We believe every child deserves to experience the positive benefits of organized sport. According to the 2014 CIBC KidSport Report, 82% of Canadians know a child who cannot participate in organized sport due to financial barriers. KidSport wants to change these statistics by providing grants to the growing volume of applications received each year.
Every donation counts and will contribute to making a difference in a child’s life. This truly is the type of gift that will last well beyond the holidays!
Sport Central has an immediate need for a combination of 500 hockey + bike helmets to serve kids in our community. With a simple $25 donation, we'll use the money raised to buy helmets for Sport Central at a reduced cost from our suppliers! Each $25 donation would sponsor the purchase a single helmet!
With your help we have set a goal to raise money for 500 helmets by the end of 2019, to support our community!
