Happy Holidays! A Curation of Charitable Stories to Warm the Heart


As we round the corner of another productive and challenging year, it warms our hearts to see all that charities across Canada have accomplished. At CanadaHelps, we regularly celebrate charities’ work – it fuels our drive, sense of urgency and passion for helping small and medium-sized charities. We are privileged to be in the unique position to help connect charities and donors through initiatives like GivingTuesday, The Great Canadian Giving Challenge, our Giving Life blog and more.

The holiday is a time for giving thanks and for sharing our blessing. We wanted to extend our sincerest thanks to all our charity clients for choosing to use CanadaHelps and to the thousands of charities who have made these initiatives such a success through their participation. In the spirit of the holiday season, we also wanted to share just a few of the inspiring stories that charities have contributed and that we’ve shared with hundreds of thousands of Canadians. We hope you enjoy them and we invite your charity to share your story on the Giving Life blog too.

Best wishes to you and your family this holiday season.
