LOOK WITHIN

At Jake’s House, we strive to support as many of the 400,000+ Canadians with autism as possible, but can’t do it without your help. From now until World Autism Awareness Month, we challenge you to look within your organization and yourself to become Jake’s House legends, supporting our country's autism community in your own unique ways.

From now until March 31st, join a network of companies in hosting DIY team fundraising events! Kick off fun, creative fundraising activities within your workplace, rally your team and see how much you can raise together! Think: dress-down days, vacation day raffles, ping pong competitions and pizza lunches; for more inspiration, click here to view some of our favourite office fundraisers--or come up with your very own ideas!  

The top fundraisers will receive complimentary tickets to A Legendary Night, a private event featuring discussions between prominent figures on the current Canadian autism landscape and a live performance from Supertramp's Roger Hodgson, legendary sing-songwriter. 

All contributions go directly toward the growth of the Legends Mentoring Program, including the existing one-on-one program offered in the community, as well as expansions into in-school mentoring and into adult transition support, like employability assistance.

Let games begin! Register your team above today. 

Want to fundraise on your own? No problem--all are welcome! You can create team of friends or family outside of work or you can join as an individual participant!

A Legendary Night 

On April 2nd at the Sony Centre, Jake's House is hosting A Legendary Night. Bringing together individuals with autism, existing supporters and potential new advocates, this private event, a special World Autism Awareness Day celebration, aims to inform and connect.

This evening will begin with discussions on the current Canadian autism landscape, led by the Economic Club of Canada and featuring several prominent figures (...stay tuned for this exciting announcement!). Following this, the event aims to unite the community through one inspiring voice: that of Supertramp's Roger Hodgson, legendary sing-songwriter. Roger Hodgson, accompanied by his eight-piece band and a 39-member orchestra, will perform live the hit song Give a Little Bit and several other fan favourites. 

Give a Little Bit

Look Within and A Legendary Night are the first efforts in Jake's House's 2019-2020 campaign, Give a Little Bit, designed to raise awareness, encourage volunteerism and grow our reach of support. We want the world to know: by giving just a little bit, you can make a legendary difference in the lives of families affected by autism across the country.
