Causes I Support
I am proud to be able to support each of these wonderful organizations. Over my life, each one has touched me in a very unique and special way!
The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is #1 cancer center in Canada recognized as one of the Top 5 cancer facilities in the world.
Canada and in particular, the GTA is so fortunate to have this facility right here. I have always believed that if you are stricken with cancer, you want to be treated by the very best.”
Today, the pressures in our personal and professional life have never been greater and the expectation for us to be ‘on’ has never been more apparent. Stress levels are very high and the mental health and wellness of Canadians has been tested – often well beyond limits.
In the past, we were looked at as being weak for speaking about depression, mental illness, and addiction. Now today, we show incredible strength by reaching out and asking for help!
I have learned so much about the importance of this tremendous organization. The impact that it has on individuals, families and corporations across the country is immeasurable!
Use the great resources that are there for you because when your mind is clear, you will AMAZE YOURSELF at what you can accomplish and the life that you can live!”
Having two daughters of my own, it was gratifying to be able to demonstrate to my children just how fortunate we are and also share with them the importance of giving back to help others.
Thank you to the foundation’s founder, Norm Clements for making me realize what is truly important in life!”
I have always believed that we never, ever truly realize how much important our local hospital is until we need treatment for ourselves, a family member or a close friend.
It is my pleasure and, I feel, my obligation to give back to OUR hospital. Southlake will be there when we need them so it is important for us to be there for them too!”
LeaderImpact exists to help business leaders reach their full potential while leading lives of balance and significance. This is leadership training that goes beyond business and the boardroom; it’s life training.”
I am pleased to support this organization in an effort to help them get the message out to men who are in the same age category as I am – many who are very close friends and business colleagues who I care for very much!”
In 2012, I was fortunate to be awarded with a Scotiabank Game Changer’s Award. While that was a true honor, the real reward for me was meeting Kelly and the Meissner. Since that time, we have formed a bond that I will always remain grateful for.
I will always support this family in anything that I can help them with!”
While in treatment in the mid-‘80s, Gilda visited a cancer support community in Los Angeles where she found others going through similar experiences to hers. She drew strength and comfort from the support the group provided, and it became her dream that similar communities be available everywhere, so no one had to face cancer alone.
Gilda’s Club offers a wide range of networking and support groups, educational and therapeutic workshops, expert speakers, recreational and social activities, all free of charge, all under one roof, all year.”
The hard facts about homelessness are very black and white: On any given night, more than 35,000 people, many of them women and small children, face the world homeless and alone.
At Hockey Helps the Homeless, they are working towards a future where every Canadian has a place to call home. The money raised through their fantasy hockey tournaments help to fund the work of 40 homeless support agencies that share their goal of ending homelessness. Funds raised in your community STAY in your community.
At Hockey Helps the Homeless they use the power of Canada’s favorite sport to give homeless Canadians a chance to start over.”
