-11 For 11 Campaign 2015-
One of the greatest tragedies when Canada loses a soldier, is the family behind that soldier, and the son or daughter who loses their hero.
Since 2002, over 150 soldiers have given their lives in service to Canada. Like Corporal Nathan Cirillo, many of them have left young children behind.
Inspired by the outpouring of support for the families of Canadian Forces families, we've decided to raise money for every single child of our fallen Canadian heroes. All of the funds we raise will go towards academic scholarships (college, university or trade school) for the children of fallen soldiers.
Our goal over the next month is to raise $111,000 towards this scholarship fund. Our idea is simple: for the month of November, if Canadians give just $11 each, we can easily reach our goal and we will be one step closer to providing scholarships for every single child of our fallen Canadian heroes.
All funds will go directly to the Canadian Hero Fund - a registered charity that has already provided over $250,000 in scholarships to children of fallen soldiers. A charitable tax receipt will be issued for all donations made through Canada Helps.
When Canada loses a soldier, and a child loses their hero, one of the best ways we can begin to respond to such a loss is by ensuring that those children have full access to post-secondary education and the financial support they need to follow their dreams.
We can do this for all children of fallen Canadian soldiers.
Please join us.
